Medium ruby. Quite spicy, clove-like aroma, plus sour cherry, dark plums and earth; no new oak. Medium body. The flavors show decent ripeness, balanced tannins and good covering fruit in the finish. Harmonious in the middle palate, with overtones of blackberry and cherry confitura in the finish. A cleaner, better effort than past vintages from this estate, but still shows its trademark mineral and cedar flavors.

Red-ruby color. Brooding aromas of dark berries, black cherry, spicecake, truffle and sexy oak. Initially a bit clenched in the mouth, but grew suppler with aeration to show well-delineated bark berry and licorice flavors and lovely inner-palate lift. Still rather closed on the back end, but the firm tannins are nicely ripe.

All beefcake at first, smelling like a southern Italian wine, and tasting of the caramelized bits left in a roasting pan once the filet is done. The vertical structure of the wine takes shape with air, all that roasted fruit lifting to reveal more classical sangiovese character, more of the brooding, dark and gamey flavors that mark Brunello. Soon the tannins give a clearer view of the concentration at the center of this wine, which needs a decade or more to evolve toward its complete expression.

Stately and complex, with fabulous structure and purity of fruit. The nose builds to an alluring peak, offering leather, cherry tomato and plum along the way. In the mouth the wine is strong and balanced, while at the end thick legs cling to your glass as it fades away like silk.

Big and solid, with excellent ripe fruit and a firm backbone of silky tannins. Full-bodied, with a dense palate. This is very impressive for the vintage. Best after 2005.
