Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Spectator | Rating: 95

A tight and chewy wine, with full body and lots of raisin and spice character. Impressive, ripe tannins. Thick and powerful; needs time in the bottle. From one of the most serious producers in Montalcino now. 21,660 cases made.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 91

The 1999 Brunello di Montalcino is, for me the best produced to date (though there will unquestionably be a Riserva from the vintage next year), a blackish garnet with a sizeable and warm nose of plums, resin, liquorice, and chocolate and a substantial, firm, and intense palate, sustained and lingering on the aftertaste.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89(+?)

($53) Good medium ruby color. Superripe aroma of kirsch Sweet, dense and a bit youthfully musclebound, with concentrated flavors of black cherry, blackberry and Valrhona chocolate. Still a bit folded in on itself, but this is solid, young and built to age. May ultimate merit an outstanding rating. (Robert Mondavi Imports, Napa, CA)

Nice color still - earth and fruit. Good balance with tobacco, cherry, vanilla. Still a good amount of tannins. Really good! I would buy more without a doubt...
