Good full saturated red. The aromas of ripe red cherry, violet, rose and mocha are downright seductive. Deep, sweet and lush but with a juicy character and attractive floral lift to the ripe red cherry, licorice, anise and tobacco flavors. Verging on fat but with firm acids providing adequate support. Finishes with substantial breadth, a healthy dusting of tannins, and late notes of minerals and leather. Perhaps a slightly less fine rendition of Brunello Riserva than some previous vintages from this estate, but a very serious and satisfying wine.

The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva blossoms on the palate in a richly-textured, layered expression of Sangiovese that is a marvel to behold. The fruit remains extremely primary, and this is a Riserva that will require quite a bit of patience. The finesse of the tannins and the luxurious expansiveness of the fruit hint at what is to come. The future can only be bright for a wine of this exceptional pedigree. Might the 2004 be a modern-day version of the 1982?

A very raisiny Brunello that verges on Amarone in style and character. Full-bodied, round and Porty, with dried fruits and round tannins. A little overdone, but some may love this full-throttle style of Brunello. Fascinating.

Rose, cherry and tobacco. Down the middle for sango-grosso, but that's where it starts. Good complexity and really good purity. Dusty tannins and a fresh finish. #italy #brunello
