International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 116

($53) Good medium ruby color. Superripe aroma of kirsch Sweet, dense and a bit youthfully musclebound, with concentrated flavors of black cherry, blackberry and Valrhona chocolate. Still a bit folded in on itself, but this is solid, young and built to age. May ultimate merit an outstanding rating. (Robert Mondavi Imports, Napa, CA)

The 1999 Brunello di Montalcino is, for me the best produced to date (though there will unquestionably be a Riserva from the vintage next year), a blackish garnet with a sizeable and warm nose of plums, resin, liquorice, and chocolate and a substantial, firm, and intense palate, sustained and lingering on the aftertaste.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

A tight and chewy wine, with full body and lots of raisin and spice character. Impressive, ripe tannins. Thick and powerful; needs time in the bottle. From one of the most serious producers in Montalcino now. 21,660 cases made.

Nice color still - earth and fruit. Good balance with tobacco, cherry, vanilla. Still a good amount of tannins. Really good! I would buy more without a doubt...
