    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 1997 vintage of this wine was ranked #7 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 2002

    Intense ruby red in color with garnet hues. The nose offers complex aromas of red fruit and spice along with hints of tobacco and chocolate. On the palate the wine is full, broad and well-balanced with a very long finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Flowers and citrus fruit galore on the nose. Opens to white truffles and plums. Full bodied, with chewy tannins and dried fruits. Goes from rustic to class. Give it bottle age to mellow. Best since 1997. Best after 2012.

    A glycerol-like texture joins licorice and menthol notes to lend this red an air of maturity, with a core of cherry and raspberry fruit. This is beautifully balanced, though the tannins will be even smoother in a few years. Fine, mineral aftertaste. Best from 2012 through 2025. 1,500 cases imported.

    The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Pian delle Vigne is one of the more open, accessible wines of the vintage. Dried red cherries, flowers, tobacco, spices and herbs are some of the notes that emerge from this attractive, fleshy Brunello. In 2006 the Pian delle Vigne is especially elegant, silky and refined, with gorgeous textural elegance and lovely overall balance. The Pian delle Vigne was fermented in stainless steel and spent 24 months in oak prior to being bottled.

    Excellent Brunello Di Montalcino. I decanted this wine and served it with homemade Italian food and it was perfect. Not too bold with minimum tannins and suptle spices. I would normally save this wine for special occasions, but I just couldn't wait. Defintely worth the money.
