Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate
86

The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino shows the signs of excessive French oak in its oxidative aromas and dry tannins. There is good depth and concentration in the fruit, but the wine lacks energy. The tannins are excruciatingly hard. It is hard to see this wine ever finding a sense of balance. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2020. AG

Wine Spectator

An opulent, fruit-driven style, yet fresh, with cherry, raspberry and blackberry up front and tar and licorice lurking behind. The richness is mouthcoating, and there are dense tannins hanging out on the finish. This has immediate appeal, yet should age well too. Best from 2014 through 2027. BS

Love the nose to this, with licorice, mint, blackberries and aniseed. Full bodied, with wonderful dense fruit and super silky tannins. So fruity, yet full of finesse. A beauty. Try it after 2014.
