    Winemaker's Notes:

    The bouquet is intense, fruit-forward, spicy and floral with hints of red berry fruits enriched by delicate spicy notes. Warm, soft and very well balanced on the palate; structured with soft tannins and long aftertaste.

    Ideal companion of roasted and stewed meat, game and mature cheese.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A seductive style, featuring fragrant floral, raspberry, tobacco and mineral aromas and flavors. Firm tannins sweep in on the finish, which is tight and unyielding now. It's all there, just needs time. Best from 2013 through 2025. 3,750 cases made.

    Wine Spectator

    The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is an attractive entry-level wine. Dark red berries, crushed flowers, licorice and mint are some of the nuances that emerge from this fleshy, mid-weight offering. The aromas and flavors are decidedly on the ripe side of the spectrum in the racy 2006, but the intensity of the fruit covers the tannins nicely, making this an attractive wine for near-term pleasure. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2021.
