2004 Canalicchio di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino **

Dark garnet. Pine, cedar, woodsy notes on the nose, with mild brine that comes through on the tongue. Light on the palate, with tart strawberry and orange tang on the finish.

Also tasted Kongsgaard 2008 Napa Valley Chardonnay **** nectar of the gods. Ribald passion fruit, sweat, chunky mid palate. Compared to the 2007 Bonneau du Martay Corton Charlemagne *** (also tasted) - road tar, just really super French, light, with a pale green note, and very dry body, admittedly not doing it justice here - the Kongsgaard kicks ass.
