2006 Brunello Tasting

1/15/2012-Tim and Jane Curtis hosted the subject wine tasting providing a delicious spaghetti and meatballs dinner. The primary purpose of the tasting was to compare the three styles of Brunello’s; namely Modern, Traditional and Modern/Traditional. The following three wines were tasted blind:

Casanova di Neri (JJB97, RP93, WS93)-Modern
Fuligni (JJB93, RP96, WS94)-Modern/Traditional
Collosorbo (JJB95, RP93, WS93)-Traditional

The favorite of the three was the Collosorbo and was guessed correctly by the majority as a Traditional. Also, the Casanova was guessed correctly by the majority as a Modern. The Fuligni received nearly even votes for all 3 categories which would suggest a Modern/Traditional wine.
