    Medium red. Soil-inflected aromas of cherry, minerals, dried flowers and blood orange; an essence of sangiovese. Silky-sweet, plush and seamless, with pungent red cherry and strawberry fruit showing an almost liqueur-like sweetness without any impression of heaviness. Most impressive on the rising whiplash of a finish, which features sweet tannins, firm acidity and terrific lingering perfume. Not at all a powerhouse but this edge-free, rather Burgundian Brunello nevertheless stains the palate. I found this beauty hard to spit.

    The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a towering wine of incredible grace. Frankly, it is hard to imagine how a wine can be so massively structured and finessed at the same time. The 2006 Riserva boasts remarkable depth and power in its dark red fruit, rose petals, licorice, crushed rocks and spices. Layers of fruit build to the huge, sweeping finish. This dramatic and dazzling wine from Poggio di Sotto is on its way to becoming an icon. It is also the last Riserva bottled by Piero Palmucci.

    Outstanding, mostly perfect! Could not believe how good this wine was. Good balance, spice on the pallet and the nose was outstanding.
