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 wineandrsquo;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: 2012andndash;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.

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.

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.

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.

Dark red with inky highlights. Aromas of pepper, spice and quinine overwhelm coffee-tinged blackberry and sour red cherry. The palate displays similar flavors, along with a decidedly herbal black pepper quality. This offers lovely balance and a long finish with considerable power, though it presently lacks enough charming fruit to make it fully enjoyable. A very rich, concentrated Brunello with plenty of texture and chewy tannins: give this a good aeration if you plan to open it anytime soon.
