Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate
91

The 2005 Brunello di Montalcino, from vineyards in both the northern and southern parts of Montalcino (roughly 65% and 35% respectively), is a fresh, fruity offering with plenty of refinement in its berries, flowers and spices, showing no hard edges and outstanding overall balance. High toned, floral notes give the wine a nice sense of lift on the finish. This pretty, delicate Brunello is best enjoyed young, while the attractive, up-front fruit remains vibrant. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020.

Velvety and chewy for a 2005 Brunello, with plenty of fruit and spices on the palate. Full and long. Beautiful. Best after 2011.
