    Winemaker's Notes:

    Brunello can only be described as 'Riserva' if it has been aged for 5 years. It is produced in only the best years, in a limited number of bottles for truly passionate wine-lovers. This garnet red wine has a clear aroma of humus and a broad, complex, ethereal aroma. It lingers in the mouth with an austere, fascinating character, revealing a structure of great depth and power.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This stunning wine boasts loads of character that peels off as aromatic layers of cherry, cassis, soapy wild flowers, violets, earth, cola and church incense. There's a sweet spice element of cinnamon and nbutmeg and all the flavors last long on the finish. It's tempered, elegant and smooth overall. Cellar Selection.

    The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva emerges from the glass with a sweet, open bouquet of menthol, red cherries, licorice, spices, and cedar. This is a relatively understated, delicate Riserva, with finessed, silky tannins that frame a long, lingering finish. The Riserva is quite open and accessible today; the only question mark is whether it has enough depth to support extended cellaring. In 2004 the Riserva is composed predominantly of fruit from the northern section of Montalcino (81%), while the remainder of the fruit is sourced from vines in Castelnuovo dell’Abate. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2024.
