    Winemaker's Notes:

    Lively ruby red color with shades of garnet. The classic entry on the nose has depth as well as faintly jammy briary fruit, cherry and morello cherry. Its complex nose is enriched by hues of cedar wood and sweet tobacco. The taste is warm, powerful, tannic and smooth. The wine has a very good structure and excellent persistence.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The estate’s 2003 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a weighty, full-bodied Brunello packed with ripe red fruit, underbrush, sweet spices, tar and licorice. The wine possesses outstanding balance and generosity. Although the tannins are a little coarse (in keeping with the vintage) there is also enough fruit here to balance out the structural components. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2023.
