Bold, pungent and explosive for a wine of its age, the 1968 offers up an intriguing mélange of wild herbs, dried flowers, lavender, smoke and dried cherries. This is another delicate, fleeting Brunello with compelling aromatics and nuanced, soft fruit, all supported by veins of bright Sangiovese acidity. Now fully mature, the 1968 is a wine to drink now and over the next decade or so. Put simply, the 1968 Riserva is everything a wine of this age and era should be. This is another super-impressive Riserva from Biondi-Santi. Reconditioned September 12, 2000.
