International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 145

($120) Deep red-ruby. Black fruits and licorice on the nose. Rich but chunky-even a bit youthfully stunted-with deep, fat dark fruit flavors in need of more lift and definition. Finishes with substantial, slightly drying tannins. Aeration brought more sweetness to the dark berry flavors along with notes of chocolate and leather. A serious mouthful of red wine but a bit anonymous as Brunello. (Vinifera Imports, Ronkonkoma, NY)

The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is simply beautiful. Now that the wine is in bottle it is even better than when I tasted it from barrel. Firm but silky tannins frame a core of ripe dark fruit as this powerful yet elegant Brunello opens up in the glass. Smoke, cured meats, earthiness and graphite develop in the glass, adding further complexity. Sweet roses and spices linger on the long, refined finish. This is a big, structured Brunello, and like all of Abbruzzese's wines, it needs at least a few years of bottle age before it offers its finest drinking.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling Issue: Web

Displays complex aromas of blackberry and cherry, with a hint of licorice. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a delicious finish of wonderful yet subtle fruit. Well-integrated and beautiful. Everything is in the right place. 5,000 cases made.
