Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate
90

The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is an attractive entry-level wine. Dark red berries, crushed flowers, licorice and mint are some of the nuances that emerge from this fleshy, mid-weight offering. The aromas and flavors are decidedly on the ripe side of the spectrum in the racy 2006, but the intensity of the fruit covers the tannins nicely, making this an attractive wine for near-term pleasure. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2021. (Antonio Galloni)

Wine Spectator

A seductive style, featuring fragrant floral, raspberry, tobacco and mineral aromas and flavors. Firm tannins sweep in on the finish, which is tight and unyielding now. It's all there, just needs time. Best from 2013 through 2025. 3,750 cases made. (BS)

James Suckling

Intense aromas of black fruits and flowers follow through to a full body, with intense fruit and racy, strong tannins. Long and chewy. Dense and impressive. Give this three to four years of bottle age.
