    Winemaker's Notes:

    #9 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012

    The bouquet is intense, fruit-forward, spicy and floral with hints of red berry fruits enriched by delicate spicy notes. Warm, soft and very well balanced on the palate; structured with soft tannins and long aftertaste.

    Ideal companion of roasted and stewed meat, game and mature cheese.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Though dense and rich, this red is also sleekly proportioned and harmonious. The cherry, raspberry, licorice, earth and tobacco flavors meld with the solid structure. Offers fine length and complexity that increases with aeration. Best from 2014 through 2025.

    Lots of fresh mushroom, with dark fruits on the nose. Full body, with silky tannins and a juicy finish. Balanced and attractive.

    The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino emerges from the glass with black cherries, plums, tobacco, spices and licorice. In 2007 the Brunello is especially dark and muscular for the vintage. The warmth of the year plus the estate’s search to make a Brunello that is more approachable in both price and early appeal comes through in spades. The 2007 is a bit bombastic today, but it should settle down with another year or two in bottle.
