I just had a 1973 Brunello di Montalcino, Tenuta Col d'Orcia - still good, but clearly faded from what one normally expects from a Brunello....

Alessandro Bindocci

Absolutely understandable. First of all 1973 was a 3-stars vintage, so not one of the best ones. Also, back then, not a lot of attention was given to the selection of the corks: this of course provides a faster aging process. Also, I am not aware of the storage conditions of that particular bottle. Try to enjoy a Brunello from one of the great vintages of the late 70s or early 80s if you find it. The best vintages are 1975, 1978, 1979, 1980, 1982, 1983, 1985 and 1988 and you will definitely enjoy the wine.
