This is a great wine 2006 Riserva. Depth and character with chocolate, leather and some herbal elements. Long balanced finish. Still has an ability to mature further

#brunello #montalcino #wine #riserva 2001 is still a baby. Basically I feel a Paedophile... Freshness and liveliness, complexity, depth. Infinite shades of Tuscany

(***) Outstanding. Black cherries and plenty of rounded structure.

red fruit, earth, mushrooms, medium tannins, mild oxidation for 14 yrs of age. The acid is pretty rippin. Could go another 10yrs easily. Not complex, but still a very enjoyable.

Not as good as I expected, not in this price range.

What a great bottle of Brunello, perfect shape with just the right amount of age and a great vintage combine for a silky texture and loads of impact on the pallet, nice acidity gives it that sour cherry quality I love. Perfect with a takeout Greek lamb wrap as we flea the wildfires in Sonoma and raid our host’s cellar.

FTW. Classic Sangiovese. Glad I have more of this. Rosemary steak pairing. Cherries, forest floor, a tiny bit of licorice in a good way.

Had the 2007 vintage in December 2018. This was the most smooth, well balanced, flavorful brunello I’ve ever had the pleasure of drinking. Definitely a food wine - it was perfect with my ribeye.
