This is serious old-world stuff that requires years. Product of Maestro Gambelli and Alberto Carli starting from 1972, this Brunello is clearly anti-pop and austere, with residual fruit, solid weight and structure, and in dire need of time. At this point 26 vintage is mostly the backbone and potential. Would love to have a properly mature bottle.
