  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 90

    A tight, linear style, elegant and supported by firm, dusty tannins. Cherry, molasses and tobacco notes are savory, while the chewy texture persists through the finish.

    Bright medium red. Aromatic nose melds cherry, raspberry, wild herbs and menthol. A floral, silky, nicely perfumed midweight, with a juicy delicacy to its fruit and floral flavors. With its rather easygoing structure, this will give early pleasure. Turned a bit dry with time in the glass.

    Concentrated ruby with orange tinges. Complex, oaky nose. Peppery. Slow to open up. Sweet fruit. Elegant palate closes up again. Good balance, just needs more time. (WS)

    The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is a pretty, mid-weight offering graced with crushed flowers, dried cherries, spices and sweet herbs. Menthol, licorice and roses add complexity on the high-toned, feminine finish. Already pretty approachable, the estate's 2006 Brunello looks to be an excellent choice for near and mid-term drinking. The Brunello spent 36 months in large Slavonian and French oak casks.
