External Reviews for Centine Brunello di Montalcino

External Review
11/14/2013

Impressive saturated ruby extremely dark for Brunello. Brooding aromas of dark berry syrup and licorice distinct hints of surmaturite Then big broad and extremely unevolved highly concentrated but currently monolithic and not really displaying its fruit. Finishes with big chewy but ultimately rather fine tannins. Impressive in a modern style but is this too solid for its own good? 90(+?) points Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Beginning in 1978, brothers John and Harry Mariani established 800 acres of vineyards on this Montalcino estate. It is the source of many wines, including two single-vineyard Brunellos. This blended Brunello, whose grapes come from eight different sites on the estate, is aged a minimum of two years in small oak barrels and larger casks. The quality of this red results in part from an excellent growing season in 1999 and the fruits of 20 years of research to determine the best clones for these vineyards.

This wine shows an incredible concentration of fruit, with loads of berries and spices on the nose. Full-bodied, with soft and silky tannins and lots of smoky character. Goes for a long time on the finish. Always a benchmark for the region. Best after 2005.

An incredibly complex and full-bodied wine with ripe, concentrated dark berry fruit and smoked meat flavors coupled with a finish that is seemingly endless.

Banfi's 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is a pretty, delicate offering laced with raspberries, flowers and sweet baking spices. Fine, silky tannins add to an overall impression of elegance as this mid-weight Brunello opens up in the glass. The wine is already quite open and accessible, and should continue to drink well for the better part of the next decade. This is one of the most refined wines I have tasted from Banfi in recent years. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020.

Winemaker's Notes:

Schön dunkles Rubinrot. Der edel anmutende Duft von Dörrfrüchten und sauberem Holz sowie die feingliedrige Frucht (dunkle Beeren, etwas Minze) am Gaumen machen diesen Wein zu einem höchst erfreulichen Trinkvergnügen. Der Wein wirkt sehr harmonisch: Schöne Verschmelzung von Fruchtkomponenten und Holzaromen. geschmeidig gegliedert die Tannine. kompakt und vielschichtig das Finale.
