Coldisole Brunello di Montalcino Toscana DOCG -Wooden Fc 6 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Advocate Review Rated 91 The 2003 Brunello di Montalcino from Coldisole offers lovely density and weight on the palate in a fat, rich expression of ripe dark fruit, chocolate, scorched earth and toasted oak. It is a backward wine that ideally needs another year or so in bottle or a few hours of aeration to allow the tannins to soften a little. It saw three years of aging in French oak, which gives the wine its roundness but also adds a touch of dryness to the tannins, particularly on the close. Still, it is a delicious, modern-styled Brunello to enjoy now and over the next decade or so. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2018. Wine Tasting Notes The distinctive and imposing bouquet is matched by a dry, warm, well-balanced and persistent taste. This wine can be aged for twentythirty years and is an ideal accompaniment for rich dishes such as roast or braised beef and game, and mature cheese.
