5 Vasco Sassetti Brunello di Montalcino (2007)
Comments: Hold 2015-2027- "The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is a gorgeous winefull of soul and character. Layers of dark red cherries, flowers, mint, licorice and tobacco emerge from the glass in this large-scaled, deeply expressive wine. Despite its size, the wine has plenty of vibrancy and freshness. The weight of Castelnuovo dell-Abate comes through in spades. This is a great showing from Vasco Sassetti. The 2007 spent three years in cask. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027." Score: 94.

6 Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino (2007)
Comments: Hold 2017-2027- The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is gorgeous. Dark red cherries, plums, spices, leather and tobacco wrap around the palate as this dense, powerful wine starts to open up. Expressive aromatics are woven throughout, giving the 2007 a measure of polish and sophistication that is not always present in this wine when it is young. Finessed, suave tannins reinforce an impression of elegance. The 2007 can be enjoyed with minimum cellaring, but it will also age gracefully for many years. Readers who want to try the 2007 today should give the wine plenty of air, as the more refined qualities only emerge over time. When tasted next to the 2006, the 2007 shows redder tonalities of fruit and less sheer muscle. Hints of tobacco, crushed flowers and spices wrap around the sensual finish. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027. Vincenzo Abbruzzese has been one of Montalcino’s most consistent producers over the last few years, an impression that was reinforced during my visit earlier this year. I tasted every wine in cask, and they were all terrific. I also had a chance to revisit the 1988 and 1990 Madonna del Pianos, both of which have aged beautifully in bottle.

8 Poggio Antico Brunello di Montalcino Brunello Poggio Antico (2007)
Comments: Hold 2014-2022-"This is beautifully perfumed, with flowers and dried raspberries. Full body, with silky and polished tannins and a berry, cherry aftertaste. Not quite the 2006 but succulent and bright." James Suckling, 94 Points "A whiff of fresh flowers from a rose garden or a lavender field makes for a nice first impression. Beyond that is dark fruit, black cherry and crème de cassis. Shadings of lead pencil, leather and tobacco fill in the rear. This Brunello presents a soft, round mouthfeel with cherry flavors capped by tight structure." Wine Enthusiast, 94 Points "The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino bursts from the glass with freshly cut roses, sweet red berries, licorice and mint. The 2007 is pure sensuality and finesse. This supple, totally polished Brunello will be very hard to resist in its youth. The Brunello spent a total of 36 months in cask. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022."

12 Valdicava Rosso di Montalcino (2009)
Comments: D/H 2015-2021-From the 98 point Brunello producer As usual, the Valdicava Rosso di Montalcino is one of the more massive Rossos of the vintage. Black-purple in color, super-ripe and full-bodied, it stands out from the rest. Exceptional purity and depth. This is a very classy red. The 2009 Valdicava Rosso di Montalcino delivers aromas of blackberry, raspberry and floral with hints of spice, chocolate-licorice twist, leather and sandalwood. Firm with fine grained tannins and a ultra-long chewy finish. This has the makeup to be a very special Rosso, but will require a bit more time in bottle to flesh out. (Best 2015-2021) - February, 2013 (JD) "A fruity and firm red, with berry and dried strawberry character, medium body and firm tannins. Well-structured Rosso di Montalcino. " 90 Points James Suckling @sterlingcellars

13 Renieri Rosso di Montalcino (2010)
Comments: Drink Now-The 2009 Rosso di Montalcino emerges from the glass with dark cherries, tobacco, cedar and licorice. It shows plenty of length and intensity to match its slightly rustic personality. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014. Score: 88. —Antonio Galloni, May 2011. @mtkisco
