2005 Mastro Janni Brunello di Montalcino

My second wine at Enoteca Antica is a Brunello even though I went from a huge Amarone to a more delicate Brunello. This wine shows baking spice, anise, and tart berries and a touch of tobacco. This is a more traditional brunello which tends to show more earthy tones than fruit. There is leather, dirt, and a hint of white pepper and the tapers nicely in your mouth. (B)
