What I’ve been drink­ing this month

Decanter - - LETTER FROM TUSCANY -

Canal­ic­chio Franco Pa­centi, Brunello di Mon­tal­cino 1985 – bright garnet in the glass, aro­mas of wild berries and toasted nuts un­der­scored with a touch of eu­ca­lyp­tus leaf. The lively pro­file, typ­i­cal of the vin­tage, still per­sists on the broad, savoury palate, which has bit­ter or­ange and rhubarb flavours. Chalky tan­nins, re­fresh­ing acid­ity and a liquorice stick fin­ish com­pletes its amaz­ing com­plex­ity. 96/ 100pts
