very dark and concentrated for Brunello with deep black fruit, licorice, leather and warm earth. Fine grained tannins gently massage the gums. Very well made from a challenging vintage. Modern-styled but still clearly Brunello. Open for business but should age very well.

Lightish body, medium tannin and acid. Hot, spicy, mint finish! Medium juicy. Still fruit, but starting to develop leather. Food wine, but ok straight. Dark fruit. Long. $80

Tannic, intense, dances down the throat, warm, earthy, perfect compliment for the steak at Sparks

Saturated ruby-red. Low-toned aromas of roasted black fruits, licorice pastille and chocolate verge on port-like. Silky on entry, then fat and thick in the middle, with a pruney quality to the highly concentrated flavors of dark raspberry, dried currant and nutty oak. Finishes with notes of raisins and walnuts, a bit in the style of dry port. Undeniably mouth coating wine but I find it lacking in energy — and I would never have identified it as sangiovese.

A more modern rendition of Brunello that boasts spice, dark berried fruits and surprisingly accessible tannins considering the vintage. A wine to hold for several years. This Brunello is more brash than your typical Brunello and does see some new oak aging.

Casanova di Neri’s 2003 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova caresses the palate with plenty of silky-textured dark red cherries, plums, smoke, earthiness and sweet toasted oak. This polished modern-styled wine offers superb balance in a rich, weighty style that will find many admirers. The tannins are remarkably well-integrated, which is quite a feat in this vintage. To be sure, there isn’t much of what could be called varietal character here but by any definition this is a beautiful wine on an absolute level. The Tenuta Nuova spent 30 months in 600-liter barrels, of which 35% were new. Anticipated maturity: 2009–2019.

Rich almost to the point of chunky; aromas of coffee and new oak announce its New World style, and then come blackberry, chocolate and smoked-meat flavors. The wine is probably shocking to the old guard, but if tastes this good, drink it.

Intense aromas of blackberry, licorice and black cherry. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a chewy finish. Has impressive structure for the vintage. Very well-made. Best after 2011.

Always an approachable wine coming from this estate. Add to that the fantastic vintage and you've got a perfect match.

The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is a big, fruit-driven wine. Made in a concentrated, opulent style, this Brunello offers tons of fruit and a round, soft personality. There isnrsquo;t too much nuance in the wine today, but that should develop in bottle. The long, polished finish invites a second taste. For now, this remains one of the more overtly fruit-forward wines of the vintage. The entry-level Brunello spends roughly 40 months in large, neutral oak. Anticipated maturity: 2010ndash;2019.

Winemaker's Notes:

[Robert Parker]: The 2003 Brunello di Montalcino is a dense deeply-colored offering loaded with sweet blue and black fruits. It is a dark brooding expression of Brunello that shows a wild unrestrained personality.....Neri makes this Brunello from his family's original holdings located around the estate.
