    Winemaker's Notes:

    Valdicava philosophy is to produce a Brunello that represents the best traditions in structure and aromatics with elegance, harmony and fruit.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Displays complex aromas of blackberry and cherry, with a hint of licorice. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a delicious finish of wonderful yet subtle fruit. Well-integrated and beautiful. Everything is in the right place. Best after 2011. 5,000 cases made.

    Lovely black licorice, flowers, and ripe fruits on the nose. This is very aromatic. Full bodied but tight, this has gone to sleep for the moment.

    The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is simply beautiful. Now that the wine is in bottle it is even better than when I tasted it from barrel. Firm but silky tannins frame a core of ripe dark fruit as this powerful yet elegant Brunello opens up in the glass. Smoke, cured meats, earthiness and graphite develop in the glass, adding further complexity. Sweet roses and spices linger on the long, refined finish. This is a big, structured Brunello, and like all of Abbruzzese's wines, it needs at least a few years of bottle age before it offers its finest drinking. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

    Classic, old world, luxurious. This is really for wine experts. On the nose, you can easily pick that it is old world. There are a lot of dirt, mud, and dried leaves going on. Midpalate, there are layers earthiness and hints of black fruits. Finish, it has a long finish. It is well balanced. There are some black fruits dancing on my palate, but the fruit flavors are not as vibrant as the earthiness and dirtiness this wine has (this is a good thing). I'm not sure if I am making sense but this puts you in a classic Italian night. I believe this wine is indeed very well made. I am 94 on this effort. Seek it out.
