Always a pleasure to ponder over a Brunello Riserva of such quality, the 2004 Villa al Cortile most definitely lives...

This a maturing brunello with floral, sweet nose of rhubarb-strawberry pie, some acetone, marzipan, leather and lead...

$42 for a Riserva? Call me skeptical.

Strange nose on this; slightly volatile with a good whiff of dusty herbs and fruit. Old school for sure.

Decent concentration, quite savory, dry and earthy. Good acidity and plenty of drying tannin. Will last for a few more years but I'd say drink up now.

Not a great Brunello...but considering most really good BDM Riservas cost double this (at least) what can one expect?

A tasty drink, but you can do a lot better for your $42
