Dark garnet core with a ruby rim. High-toned aromas of red berry fruits mingle with the scent of wildflowers. Racy, fairly intense flavors of maraschino cherry, wild strawberry (fragoline) and raspberry, with a hint of chocolate on the finish. Ripe, mouthcoating tannins give this Brunello a solid structure.
Intense aromas of ultradry fruit, with sultana and prune character. Full-bodied and chewy, with a tobacco and raisin aftertaste. Rustic and slightly overdone, yet an impressive red. Drink now.
Age-worthy Brunello from a classic producer. Amazing fruit character with dusty red berry fruit, a touch of clay mineral and elegance on the palate. You'll appreciate the age on this regal wine.
The 2003 Brunello di Montalcino is very representative of the house style in its intense expression of ripe dark fruit, menthol, leather, chocolate and spices. It offers superb richness and depth, with notable complexity for a wine of its size. Another year of bottle age should help smooth the tannins yet I wouldnandrsquo;t wait too long to drink this wine, as it will likely offers its best drinking relatively early. Anticipated maturity: 2009andndash;2016.
Impressive aromas of ripe fruit and fresh mushrooms, with hints of tobacco. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a generous berry, spice and tar aftertaste. I like this stylish red. Drink now.
A touch rusty to the eye, but pretty to the nose. Aromas of mint, clove and dried fruits elicit excitement, as does the lovely round palate that's loaded with flavors of smoked meat and herbal but ripe berry fruit. Quite full-bodied and sly, although its aging potential could be limited. Likely best over the next three to five years.
This is among our favorite 2004 Brunellos. Winemaker Andrea Cortonesi who once said, " the best irrigation is sweat," has worked hard to craft this plush, modern and penetrating wine. It boasts a deep, dark concentration and a very beautiful bouquet of luscious blackberries, spice, black mineral and cola. It's round and supple and shines simpatico.
