    Winemaker's Notes:

    Ruby red, tending to garnet red with aging. A broad, ethereal and compound bouquet with hints of violet and a pleasant hint of wild berries and vanilla. Dry, warm and velvety, shows rich texture.

    Pair with red and roast meat.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This gorgeous wine opens with a big, bold aromatic bang, enormous depth, intensity and concentration. This is a massive Brunello on every front including aromatics. The tones of cherry, leather, tobacco, sweet spice and toasted nut are perfectly focused and bright.

    Medium red. Cherry, nectarine and orange peel on the nose, lifted by flowers. Intensely flavored and penetrating, boasting terrific energy and purity to its reticent middle palate. Denser and chewier than the classico, but at the same time a bit more high-pitched and exotic. A wine of terrific focus and verve, finishing with palate-staining, reverberating length. I initially scored this a half step behind the regular bottling, but this really exploded after 72 hours in the recorked bottle, while magically retaining its freshness. Easily the best vintage since 1999 for this beautiful estate on the northern edge of the appellation.

    Sage, rosemary and tar aromas complement the sweet black cherry fruit in this red. Though supple and almost opulent, there's an elegance and freshness about this, too. The long aftertaste features spice and tobacco notes. Best from 2012 through 2024. 800 cases made.

    The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli is a richer, deeper wine than the straight Brunello. The Montosoli presents a beautiful center of dark fruit, along with suggestions of grilled herbs, high-toned flowers, leather and licorice that add complexity. Despite the wine’s richness, the tannins are still a bit prominent, and need a few more years in bottle to soften. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2026.
