Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

($65-$81) Ruby-red. Wild, Cote-Rotie-like aromas of raspberry, leather, bloody steak and magnolia. Lush, sweet, fat and seamless; rustic in a positive way. Notes of leather, tobacco, meat, coffee and earth. Finishes with broad, fine, sweet tannins. A distinctly sauvage, very dense wine that should offer early accessibility. (Marc de Grazia; importers include Michael Skurnik Wines, Syosset, NY; Vin Divino, Chicago, IL; and Estate Wines Ltd. , San Rafael, CA)

Wine Spectator | Rating: 91

Impressive aromas of ripe fruit and fresh mushrooms, with hints of tobacco. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a generous berry, spice and tar aftertaste. I like this stylish red. Drink now. 1,000 cases made.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 90

The 1999 Brunello di Montalcino, with penetrating, spicy, and leathery aromas, is intense and concentrated on the palate, and is just beginning to round off. There are some tannins to resolve on the finish, but the depth of flavor should insure another ten years of satisfying drinking ahead.
