La Magia Brunello di Montalcino 2005

Member Review by Michael759:

Very smooth wine; almost earthy like a pinot noir which was surprising but had nice body soft tannins and a clean finish.

La Magia:
The winery "La Magia" lies just north of the roman abbey of St. Antimo.

The winery "La Magia" lies just north of the roman abbey of St. Antimo. It is not only situated in one of the best agricultured zones for a vineyard, but is also positioned among one of the most beautiful panoramic sight in Montalcino. The winery is run by Schwarz family who come from the Alto Adige (South Tyrol) region. The Schwarz family prefer a more natural approach in the vineyard, using as few chemicals as possible, while for fermentation and vinification they use the modern technologies. The winery consists of 52 hectars land of which 16 hectare are the vineyard of the Brunello vines.

La Magia is one of the most exciting projects in Tuscany today, investment in the cellar and a revolution in the vineyards initiated in 1997 is transforming the beautiful estate into one of Montalcino's hottest properties. When owner, Harald Schwarz met Roberto Cipresso he invited him to help take La Magia's wines to the next level of quality that its physical location already promised. The combination of the two personalities - Roberto's flamboyance tempered by Harold's more conservative nature - is one of the keys to the success of the estate. The wine is a bold effort, a dark rich plum colour, showing little signs of its age, in the glass it has plenty of glycerin "legs" and on the nose it offers plenty of complexity; spices, kirsch, tar, liquorice. On the palate its rich and velvety nose follows through into a full bodied and complex wine whose tannins are softening, it is drinking well now, and my guess it is good for another 10 - 15yrs
