Medicinal and still showing some oak. Dark, black currant fruit, a bit of vanilla and oak sweetness. Sweet on entry, round, ripe fruit is layered, firm and blocky. Nice weight on the back end, firm compressed fruit on the finish, really nice cut and freshness to the fruit. Nice, lightly haunting fruit finish, apparently lower acid feeling, intense palate-staining blackberry fruit. 89

A touch musty, seared iron, dried berry fruit. Sweet fruit, round, friendly entry then bitter, drying tannins on the finish. Austere tannins, nice mouth grab, a bit of cola, and muscular. Still has some fruit but not much. Nice structure, little bit of heat, little corked, flavors still very evolved. 87 pts

In stark contrast to the other wines of the evening this offers distinct oaken spice on the nose. Lots of Bordeaux character though balanced by intense red berry fruit but without offering much else. On the palate this is downright opulent with lots of wood tannin subsumed in the lush pillow of fruit. Full bodied and with good supporting acidity this is dark and chewy but monolithic with plummy, bitter cocoa tinged fruit and a spicy, powerful finish. This needs time for the wood to integrate though it seems to have all the requisite materials to be fine. 2011-2020

very bright nose with floral and herb notes dominating the early going, a bit of varnish but lovely spicy salami notes over red cherried fruit - soft in the mouth and finally showing a nice resolved mouthfeel as this was a bit stern and unfriendly for quite some years. Airy in the mouth with vividly bright cherry fruit leading to a long finish, really showing a slick, layered mouthfeel with great purity but lacking a bit of complexity. Great cherry fruit.

2010 Liked it, it drinks bold and beautiful now....I am saving one to see how time will treat it. Excellent vintage from a very special producer. If you have the patience, I would still say it would only be better in another two years, it is just a short distance away from it's peak. Bravo!

Dieser Topwein ist von einer intensiven, rubinroten Farbe. Sein Bukett erinnert an Weichseln und dunkle, rote Früchte. Der hervorragend strukturierte Geschmack wirkt gerbstoffhaltig, konzentriert und voll. Der «Prunaio» verfügt über einen Schatz edelster Polyphenole und eine beachtliche Konzentration. Seine Dichte, Finesse und sein sanfter Antrunk begeistern. Am Zungengrund schliesst er letztlich bis zum Furioso gesteigert.

"2006 Prunaio is made from the estates finest Sangiovese fruit and given 12 months in small French oak barrels. It presents a lively dark ruby tonality along with gorgeous layers of vibrant dark fruit

Very ripe aromas of berry and green tobacco follow through to a medium-bodied palate, with medium tannins and a lightly fruity finish. Sangiovese Grosso. Best after 2003.

Tough and tannic, gangs up on the finish, but underneath the layers of astringency beats a heart of pure Sangiovese flavor that just needs time. Raspberry and plum flavors manage to peek through, especially on the finish. Drink after 1995.
