International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 116

($117) Dark red-ruby. Superripe yet suave and restrained aromas of liqueur-like currant, nuts, underbrush, marzipan and dried spices, with very subtle oakiness. Juicy, nutty and penetrating, with a deep, pure sweetness but also terrific energy and grip. Mounts and expands impressively on the back half, finishing very long, dense and pure, with a peacock's tail of redcurrant and dried flowers. Showed more sweet oak with extended aeration but has the material and complexity to support it.

Wine Advocate Author: Daniel Thomases Issue: 158

The 1999 Brunello di Montalcino Rennina, essentially the regular bottling, is a fresh ruby-garnet with focused and ripe red currant and wild cherry fruit, attractive notes of tar and wild fennel, and a balanced, vigorous, and well sustained palate. What's missing here? Perhaps the spark, the inspiration which separates a very fine wine from an outstanding one. But perhaps we should stop expecting miracles in every vintage from this producer - he has never claimed, after all, to be able to walk on water.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Interesting aromas of crushed berries, cedar and green tobacco follow through to a full-bodied palate, with gamy, smoky and fruity flavors. Long finish. Decadent style. Needs to come together with some bottle age. Solid red.

Pieve Santa Restituta is GAJ's venture in Brunello di Montalcino. The 40-acre property was purchased in 1994 and now GAJA produces two Brunellos from its holdings. The Rennina is a blend of three separate vineyards while the Sugarille comes from a single vineyard of the same name. The 1999 Rennina is a medium garnet color with lightly pigmented legs. A very full and inviting nose of "polished" new oak, a bit of balsamic vinegar and game, and slightly decayed cherry. Well balanced with integrated acidity and tannin. Good length. More forward than expected but still needs some time to reach full maturity. The wine is raised for one year in barrique, one year in large oak casks, and two years in bottle prior to release.
