I'm always looking for a good Spatlese.
Rossoz, this was my impression:
Full nose of creamy peach and pear puree, with a clean freshness. Palate is full and similar to nose. Lots of pear, peach and apple pie. A touch too sweet, but flavourful enough to overcome it. Very concentrated fruit. Delicious. Tingling acidity, but could have more to balance the sweetness. Would like to try this aged. Definitely worth the $17 (LCBO), but I've had better.
On another note, LCBO Vintages is putting on a Brunello di Mont. walk-around tasting event Monday evening. 55 wines from 2006, 2007 & 2008. The producers coming are members of the Consorzio del Vino Brunnelo di Mont (not terribly sure what that actually is, but I assume some kind of guiding parent organization).
Looking forward to this as it will be my first wine tasting event, and lately, I've wanted to discover and taste more Brunello.
