    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep ruby red. Complex and fresh, with inviting fruit aromas balanced by oak-imparted spices. Well-structured and full-bodied, with fine tannins that promise great aging capacity; long and impressive finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Here is a particularly impressive wine from one of Montalcino’s top estates. The wine opens with ethereal balsam notes of eucalyptus, humus, dried fruit and dried mint. Beyond those elegant tones are sturdier layers of cured meat and savory spice. It shows bold concentration, thick power and firmness on the close, with a drying mineral finish.

    The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is very beautiful in this vintage. Ripe, silky tannins frame expressive red cherries, flowers, licorice and tobacco. Sweet floral notes add lift on the delicate finish. Col d’Orcia’s 2007 is pure elegance and finesse from start to finish. The wine spent 36 months in oak, all of which it has handled with grace. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2037.

    Bright medium red. Musky red cherry, smoky minerality and an ethereal floral topnote on the nose. Silky, elegant and seamless, with lovely inner-mouth perfumed lift to the flavors of red cherry and rose petal. This intensely flavored, very suave Brunello finishes floral, energetic and long, leaving the taste buds vibrating.

    Dark fruit, with berries and flowers and hints of cream. Full-bodied, with a dense palate of chewy tannins, yet reserved and polished. Texture is lovely. Drink or hold.

    James Suckling

    A rich, round version, evoking cherry and berry flavors tinged by earth and underbrush accents. Verging on chewy, the dusty tannins grace the finish, where tobacco and rhubarb notes mingle. Best from 2014 through 2024.

    Excellent nose, nice complex wine with solid tannins and great finish. Deep purple and ruby color with lots of good fruit. Great example of Brunello
