Deep garnet with some browning edges. Earthy on the nose with some cherries. Need to update.

82 Nardi ⚔️
Hue is dark, modest concentration and vibrancy. Oddly, little sediment in Silvio Nardi (74 also little sediment, possibly reconditioned at some time)
Aromas were dark 🌚 This was Tar and Black licorice. Fernet like, even menthol and bitter agent, like Quinine. It was wild on the nose, not sure if heavy decanted would have produced a more interesting tasting, happy to have a clean bottle showing Brunellos structure in fulll force. Tannins were dry, definite bitter beer face present. This was one that needed food, holding down against charcuterie board.

silvio Nardi founded the estate at Casale del Bosco; since 1985 it has been run by his youngest daughter, Emilia. 100% Sangiovese wine aged in oak for 2 years (12 months French & 12 months Slavonian oak), Ruby with aromas of ripe dark fruits, oak and spice. Full-bodied wine with medium acidity, fine yet smooth tannins and a slight warmth of alcohol present. The ripe fruit flavors of cherry and strawberry are complex yet not overdone. Some cacao, tobacco and toasty appear on the long finish. Tasting Sample.

Monthly wine group met up and had an Italian wine night at one of the local Italian BYOB spots. Really fantastic Italian wines were brought, as well as some random bottles that were outside the theme (but worthy of opening regardless of theme).

This is one of the better brunellos I’ve had in a while. It was double decanted about 6-7hrs before dinner and it needed every bit of that. Darker than expected, in a good way. Black-cherry, smoked earth, spiced dates.

The Nardi Brunello Di Montalciano 2008 evokes a warm, still afternoon in a deciduous forest, the sort where you can hear twigs snapping under your feet. Splendid, woodsy aromas of forest floor, brambles, dried leaves, mushrooms, and dried black cherries. Silky and voluptuous on the palate, with firm, polished tannins that plunge into the substrata—densely packed layers of calcareous earth, sandstone, and marl surface against a backdrop of black fruit. Dried herbs, cedar and tobacco on a lingering finish.

Had this February 23rd 2015. Strong mineral notes upfront on the nose and palate with bright fruit and high acid.
