    Winemaker's Notes:

    Dark-ruby red, very concentrated, with hints of purple, which show the great vitality of this vintage. Evolved and austere, with beautiful aromas of wild ripe red berries, leather and spices. Powerful, big, round, yet extremely elegant. Great balance, and velvety sweet tannins. Silky and very persistent in the finish. Wonderful aging potential.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A whiff of fresh flowers from a rose garden or a lavender field makes for a nice first impression. Beyond that is dark fruit, black cherry and crème de cassis. Shadings of lead pencil, leather and tobacco fill in the rear. This Brunello presents a soft, round mouthfeel with cherry flavors capped by tight structure.

    This is beautifully perfumed, with flowers and dried raspberries. Full body, with silky and polished tannins and a berry, cherry aftertaste. Not quite the 2006 but succulent and bright. Better in 2013.

    The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino bursts from the glass with freshly cut roses, sweet red berries, licorice and mint. The 2007 is pure sensuality and finesse. This supple, totally polished Brunello will be very hard to resist in its youth. The Brunello spent a total of 36 months in cask. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.

    Good bright, full red. Captivating aromas and flavors of raspberry, dried flowers, brown spices and mint. Suave and seamless but at the same time vibrant and light on its feet, with saline minerality and harmonious acidity giving shape and lift to the middle palate. This silky, sharply delineated 2007 Brunello shows a lovely restrained sweetness and finishes with excellent subtle persistence and energy. Quite stylish already but there's more to come.
