    Winemaker's Notes:

    Solely from the finest years. Shows remarkable elegance and complexity, and a beautiful bouquet of marasca cherries, tobacco and mint, with a lovely, long finish.

    Pair with very rich, structured dishes, red meat, game, seasoned cheeses.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Very perfumed aromas of ripe fruit such as strawberries and blackberries. Turns to flowers and incense. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a bright, citrus aftertaste and ultra-clean fruit. The purity and focus of the wine is spellbinding.

    The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva wafts from the glass with sweet red cherries, dried flowers, licorice and tobacco. It shows lovely energy on the mid-palate to match its understated, refined personality. Silky tannins support the expressive, nuanced finish. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026

    Bright red. Terrific floral lift to the ripe aromas of red fruits and spices. Perfumed and penetrating in the mouth, with outstanding energy and thrust to the spicy cherry and redcurrant flavors. No excess weight here! Most impressive today on the very long, fine-grained finish, which features a saline nuance, suave tannins and superb palate-cleansing mineral grip. Balanced from day one but quite dense and tightly coiled: I'd hold my bottles for at least four or five years before pulling the cork. This outstanding riserva should be long-lived.

    Sweet spice and dark fruit aromas offer all the telltale signs of a top-notch riserva. The wine is bright with etched acidity and strong tannins. Let it age 10 years or more. Defined, compact mouthfeel.
