A rich wine, with mushroom, berry and meat character. Medium- to full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a chocolaty finish. At its peak. Drink now.
The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is a gorgeous wine laced with red cherries, tobacco, cedar and underbrush, all supported by a firm tannic spine. Argianorsquo;s 2006 Brunello shows beautiful inner perfume and the structure to develop positively for a number of years. Floral notes appear on the vibrant, polished finish. The estatersquo;s Brunello spent 12 months in French oak (which is mostly felt in the winersquo;s textural richness) and completed its aging in cask. Anticipated maturity: 2014ndash;2024.
The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is the first Brunello oenologist Hans Vinding-Diers made from start to finish at Argiano, and it represents a significant stylistic shift in direction. Among the changes Vinding-Diers instituted are lower temperatures in fermentation, which have given his wines gorgeous, detailed aromatics as well as notable textural elegance. The medium-bodied 2004 Brunello di Montalcino possesses perfumed layers of sweet ripe fruit that flow gracefully onto the palate, where sweet notes of tobacco, leather and spices come to life, adding further complexity. Finessed tannins round out this beautiful Brunello that is more about elegance rather than sheer power alone. Anticipated maturity: 2009ndash;2019.

Very jammy on the nose, with strawberries and mint. Full-bodied and very polished, with loads of fruit and velvety tannins. Long, juicy finish. Big and rich red from the producer. Drink now through 2010.
Complex aromas of blackberry, cigar box and jam follow through to a full-bodied palate, with chewy tannins and a medium finish. Needs time to come together. Best after 2006.
94 points Wine Spectator: Delivers raisins, blackberries and roses on the nose. Full-bodied, with a soft and silky tannin structure and a long and delicious finish. This is the best Brunello ever from here. Best from 2010 through 2016.
