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

A "Wow!" wine on every level. This is a lovely, dark, smooth and rich expression that is packed tight with intensity and personality. The biggest, boldest wine by far from Montalcino's 2006 vintage, this bottle will age nicely and add value to your cellar collection.

Saturated ruby. Wild aromas of black raspberry, smoked meat, coffee and mocha, complemented by oak notes of coconut, mace and vanilla bean. Sweet, densely packed and primary, with very sweet but firm flavors of dark berries and dark chocolate. Very cleanly made and young, with obviously high-quality oak. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and lovely lingering sweetness of fruit.

The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is fabulous in this vintage. Waves of dark fruit caress the palate as this juicy, delicious wine reveals its considerable charms. The fruit shows lovely weight and richness while maintaining an essentially mid-weight personality. Sweet scents of French oak linger on the round, caressing, impeccable finish. This is an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next decade-plus. The harvest took place from the 2nd to the 5th of October. The wine spent 24 days on the skins, after which it was racked into cask, where it spent 45 months prior to being bottled. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024.

A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2003 Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino 750ml

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.

Warm and ripe red with lots of blackberry and cedary oak character. Full-bodied and very thick, yet refined and silky. Should turn out fabulously. Another super wine from Casanova. Best after 2007.

Lighter in style and consistency than this producerrsquo;s past Brunellos, this wine represents a return to Montalcino tradition. Aromas include red cherry, wet earth, white mushroom and tobacco. In the mouth, the wine is tight, firm and long lasting.

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.
