    Winemaker's Notes:

    Having skipped the release of 2005 vintage Brunello Cerretalto is back with the 2006. It is a deep and complex wine delivering fruity and spicy notes and a distinctive mineral scent which is the unmistakable mark of this wine. The finish is remarkably long and deep.

    Perfectly matching with meat and cured cheeses but also just with the persons you love to share it for moments of authentic pleasure.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Aromas of ripe strawberries, sandalwood, and flowers follow though to a full body, with soft tannins and a fruity finish. This is so long and gorgeous, with intense fruit and a defined and beautiful structure. Amazing fruit at the finish. Gorgeous now, but will age beautifully. The palate builds and show such depth. So wonderful now, but better in 2015.

    Cerretalto delivers aromas of natural complexity and oak-driven tones of cinnamon, clove, chocolate and exotic spice. The fruit is dark, dense and ripe. There's extra roundness and density in the mouth that holds together the wine's firm tannins and its crisp, acidic component. Hold 10–20 more years. Cellar Selection.

    A rich style, boasting macerated cherry and raspberry, leather and licorice flavors. Starting to meld with the dense tannins, which are mouthcoating and almost chewy on the long finish. This has excellent intensity, with a serious seam of mineral that permeates the aftertaste. Best from 2015 through 2035.

    Wine Spectator

    The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto emerges from the glass with layers of beautifully delineated dark fruit, flowers, mint, licorice and violets. It possesses terrific richness and nuance in a full-bodied, structured style that captures the essence of this great vintage. Big, powerful tannins provide the backdrop for expressive, super-ripe aromas and flavors. The 2006 needs time to soften, but it is immensely promising. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026.
