New York
Gotham Hall
Release of The Great 2010 Vintage Brunello
Brunello Reserva 2009
Rosso di Montalcino 2013

The Greatest Brunello I ever drank was the 1990 Vintage of Angelo Sassetti's
Brunello Pertimali "Awesome" !!! My previous favorite, most memorable Brunello was
also a 1990, but from Valcicava, the normale ..

Getting ready to jead up to Gotham Hall for one of my favorite tastings of the year, The Brunello Tasty, where I'll be tasting the highly taunted vintage Brunello's of 2010, a great year for Brunello and the town of Montalcino .. The 2010 Vintage Brunello will be the star, along with Reservas from 2009 and the just released 2013 Rosso di Montalcino .. Some 50 producers of Brunello will be at the tasting with about 200 different Brunello's to try .. Most Brunello producers bring a couple other vintages of Brunello besides the 2010 & 2009 Riserva .. The Count Franceso Moruni Cinzano of Col d'Orcia usually brings some nice older vintages. Last year he brought his 1997 vintage Brunello which I bought 2 cases of. It's really fine and should be drunk now or within the next 2 years. If you happen to have some, drink it now (do not hold). The Count makes one of the most wonderfully impressive Reserve Brunello's of all with his Brunello Reserva Con Vento, which I always look forward to trying. It never disappoints.


"The 1990 Vintage was one of the Greatest Brunello's I've ever
tasted. I drank the 1990 in the year 2006, as well as the 1990
Angelo Sassetti Brunello Pertimali .. Both were absolutely Awesome" !!!

Well, that's it for now. I'm heading up to the Brunello Tasting. I'll drink, taste, schmooze, 
take notes, and have a great time. I'll take pictures and post them and report back on
my time and impression of this the Bruenllo Tasting New York 2015 ...

Che ve Diamo Presto !!!
