La Fornace Brunello di Montalcino 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

"Loads of crushed blackberries, with hints of vanilla and spices. Full-bodied, with intense fruit from raisin to black cherry. Beautiful silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Best after 2011....92" WS 04/07 "Medium-deep red. Complex, spicy nose (mint, eucalyptus, coriander, thyme) redolent of black fruits, along with a whiff of alcohol....chewy texture is somewhat dominated by dusty, mounting, rather assertive tannins on the moderately long, peppery finish..." IWC 06/07 "outstanding...a big, deeply-colored effort, it possesses notable complexity and weight in its expression of dark fruit, leather, licorice, earthiness, menthol, minerals and sweet toasted oak...91" WA 10/07
