Top Notes For
Martin Bergo

The most unusual wine of the year, thus far. This Brunello is atypical in many ways. Color is dark ruby with a nice brick orange hue; nose is full of pine cone and resin and juniper (pyrazines?) flowery like a mature barolo without the tar; it is like a bouquet of roses and freashly-picked meadow wild flowers, there are some oak flavors and dark fruits but that’s in the background; taste is also unusual in that the acid level is low but are carried by the ”acidity” of hefty tannins, mid-palate is weak but the finish is long, satisfying and contains all the elements from the nose. Highly unusual and unique; confusing!
For entertainment value the score is 9,5!
