94 points Wine Spectator: Floral with berry plum and sandalwood aromas as well as a hint of vanilla. Full-bodied with firm tannins and vanilla berry and plum flavors. This is dense layered and balanced. Best after 2012. 3000 cases made. 93 points The Wine Advocate: Lisinis 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is a racy sleek wine loaded with super-ripe dark fruit.

Clean minerally notes frame the finish giving the wine a lovely sense of balance and proportion. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024.

Strawberry pie on the nose, with a hint of coffee. Full-bodied, with soft, ve...
