Ruffino Brunello di Montalcino Greppone Mazzi 2000
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
Wine EnthusiastThere is a touch of herb and tomato on the nose, but also plenty of solid plum and cherry. A good wine but one that doesn't stray far from the beaten path. In the mouth, there's red fruit, licorice and hard tannins. Fails to wow, but it's solid. Imported by Franciscan Estates.
Wine SpectatorVery raisiny and ripe, with hints of walnut. Medium- to full-bodied, thick and jammy, with lots of fruit, but a bit overdone. Some may love the exaggerated style. Would match well with gorgonzola. Drink now. 5,000 cases made.
