    Winemaker's Notes:

    Aromas of violets, dark red fruits and earth precede similar flavors on the palate. An elegantly styled supple red that offers complex aromas of dried berries and raspberries with notes of chocolate. Full-bodied with velvety tannins and long finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    It takes only a few moments before you appreciate the enormity, intensity and overall beauty of this landmark wine. Cerretalto is always a high scoring expression of Brunello, but the ideal conditions of the 2007 vintage elevate it to earthly perfection. Dark and fleshy, the wine delivers ever-evolving aromas of dark fruit, chocolate, spice and tobacco. The acidity is carefully balanced against the wine’s thickness and rich texture. The finish is long, luscious and elegant.

    Wonderful aromas of dried berries and raspberries with hints of milk chocolate and blueberries. Full body, with velvety tannins and a long delicious finish. Drink now or hold. Wonderful wine as always.

    The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto is racier and more polished at this stage than the 2006. It boasts superb aromatics, silky tannins and extraordinary textural finesse. I imagine the 2007 will be immensely appealing upon release. Today it is stunning. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027.

    The Wine Advocate

    Pure cherry and blackberry fruit mingles with mineral, spice and earth notes in this modern-styled red. Graphite elements emerge as the bright acidity and dusty tannins drive the lingering finish. Fresh, focused and long, with fine complexity and seamless texture. Best from 2016 through 2035.
