Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate
97

The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is a huge, dense wine that explodes from the glass with tar, smoke, earthiness black cherries and minerals. The wine possesses dazzling concentration and tons of richness, as waves of fruit coat the palate in stunning style. This big, dramatic Brunello needs time in bottle, but it is nothing short of magnificent today. The balance, and the integration of the French oak in particular, is brilliant. For those who are curious to try a bottle now, the wine should be opened a few hours in advance as the tannins are imposing at this stage. This is a rare Brunello of superb pedigree and complexity. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029. (Antonio Galloni)

Sweet cherry on the nose, with a hint of flowers and new oak. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long, rich finish. Powerful and rich for the vintage. A new wine from the master of Brunello. Best after 2011. 500 cases made. (James Suckling)

A solid wine, with blueberry and toasted oak character. Full, with polished tannins and a long finish. The center palate needs to fill in now with bottle age. But there is plenty there. Not the 2004 but seriously good for the vintage. Give it a year or two more of bottle to fully realize the quality of this wine.
