Good deep red. Red berries, flowers, sexy oak spices and an exotic suggestion of blood orange. Sweet, lively and perfumed, with lovely energy and floral lift to the sappy flavors of red berries and exotic spices. Very sangiovese in its firm acidity and cut. Finishes brisk and a bit wiry, with a hint of graphite and dusty tannins. Will this put on weight with bottle aging?

The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is one of the most juicy, easygoing wines readers will come across in this vintage. A sweet, open bouquet leads to bright red fruits as this vinous Brunello flows from the glass. Crushed flowers, mint and raspberries add complexity on the delicate, nuanced finish. The wine's up-front personality makes it an excellent choice for enjoyment over the next handful of years.

This red starts out ripe and accessible, boasting plum, cherry and chocolate flavors, then turns firm and tight on the finish, where tobacco and mineral notes take over. I like the potential of this when it integrates more fully.
