The rewards and frustrations of home winemaking

Brunello 2-year Tasting

I’ve been excited about trying out this Limited Edition wine again, hopefully it’s almost ready.  I decanted very briefly before first taste; it’s still very foamy.  Not much “soapiness” on the nose, mostly light, bright fruits with hint of spice. Very clear garnet in color.  Good oak on the tongue giving slightly buttery mouthfeel, with rich, complex flavors of overripe red fruits and cigar box.  It is coming along very nicely now, no detectable “kit taste.”  I think this one will peak in another 6-10 months, but definitely entering the drinkable stage.
