Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 90 points

The 2005 Pegasos is not a new wine, per se, but rather a barrel of 2005 Brunello-designated juice that Soldera thought was ready to bottle and drink sooner rather than later, but not up to the qualitative standards of his top Brunello labels. It is a beautiful, silky wine graced with perfumed dried cherries, flowers and minerals, all of which come together in a delicate, feminine expression of Sangiovese. Ideally the wine is best opened an hour or so in advance to allow for some of the small imperfections in the bouquet to blow off. The 2005 Pegasos has come together quite nicely over the last few months and it will be interesting to see where it goes from here. After several hours, the delicate, spiced bouquet and ethereal fruit is at times reminiscent of Pinot Noir. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020.
