Itrsquo;s hard to imagine a more concentrated, layered young Brunello, with aromas of crushed berries, treacle tart, light raisin, coffee and chocolate that follow effortlessly to the palate. Full-bodied, with chewy yet velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Develops wonderfully in the glass and grows fruitier with every minute. A great wine, with extraordinary depth. One of the greatest Brunellos of all time. Classic. Best after 2012.

Bright, full ruby-red, one of the darker 2004 Brunellos I’ve tasted to date. Precise aromas of cassis, licorice, bitter chocolate and nutty oak, with a suggestion of black pepper. More tangy and juicy on entry than the Tenuta Nuova and the normale, then rather imploded in the mouth, but with some mineral and floral topnotes that I don’t find today in the other wines. The most graceful and most varietally expressive of this trio, but still muscular and quite unevolved, with a powerful spine of acidity. The tannins coat the front teeth but this wine has the building sweetness to support them. This, too, will require patience and may ultimately merit an even higher score.

The 1999 Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto, the housersquo;s most important selection, is an impeccable blend of tradition and innovation in its deep garnet-ruby color, powerful aromas of red currant and wild cherry fruit, smoked and hung meat, and tar, its deep and seamless flow of flavors, and its rich, concentrated texture. Drink: 2005ndash;2020.

The 1997 Brunello di Montalcino Cru Cerretalto possesses a dark garnet color as well as a big, spicy, earthy bouquet with hints of cedar and dried herbs. Tannic and medium to full-bodied, with a saturated color in addition to sweetness and fruit in its moderately long finish, it will be at its finest between 2006ndash;2014.

The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto is deep and powerful in its smoke, tar, spices, scorched earth and plums. The wine has shut down quite a bit since I last tasted it a few months ago, and the refined silky tannins that were present a while back have turned decidedly virile. Still, the wine’s pedigree is impossible to miss, and the only thing this needs is time, probably lots of it. Pretty scents of soy, smoke and incense inform the long, elegant finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012–2024. Proprietor Giacomo Neri makes some of the richest, most textured Brunello readers will come across. The house style favors a lush expression of fruit with a softness that makes the wines very appealing upon release.

Very powerful and rich, with blackberry, licorice and light toasty oak. This has pure fruit. Turns exotic and decadent. Big and full-bodied, with dense, powerful tannins, but velvety and beautiful. Layered and gorgeous. Best from 2011 through 2018. 1... Wine Spectator. A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2004 Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto 750ml

Lovely berry and cherry character with plenty of plums and lightly toasted oak. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a fresh finish. Very fresh and exciting. Extremeley fine, long tannins. Goes on for minutes. This is always a top-notch single-vineyard wine. Best after 2005.
