Vintage 2004 - true to type #brunellodimontalcino with spicyness, cedar, power and refinement. Partnered with risotto with truffles, a combination that is as simple as brilliant

Classic cherry notes, licorice, clove and smoked sausage. It's been a while since I've had this one and I was nicely surprised

Big and rich 2010 vintage. 15% alcohol and driven by ripe fruit. Well balanced and great structure but a bit over the top. Doesn't look Italian. Just looks like a well made generous red.

Wow, much better and more energetic than the last bottle I had from this stash/mistake purchase.

Good wine with some subtle mushroom and dark berry notes, but not much liveliness mid-palate or on the finish.

V09. Very nice, long way to go...olive and cedar nose . Rich, thick, black berry fruit. Tight, peppery, somewhat chalky, finish. Balanced, really good..

A very nice and mature Brunello - mature full body with a strong punch, but comes in stealthy by way of the delicate ripe red Sangiovese. Smoky-ish finish ala a mature Bordeaux. Good stuff, this.

Very light wine rich with raspberry fruit. Memo to me later start with this wine!
