    Winemaker's Notes:

    The wine shows intense red berry aromas with leather and incense notes. On the palate, clean, juicy, herb-inflected flavors take over before robust, polished tannins on the long finish.

    This wine pairs well with beef and lamb, venison, boar, game birds and hard aged cheeses.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A beautiful nose of dried berries and milk chocolate follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a chewy finish. I would leave it for two or three years still. Beautiful balance.

    James Suckling

    The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino flows with the essence of black cherries, smoke, tar, licorice, French oak and violets. This dark, sensual Brunello possesses gorgeous inner perfume and an open, textured personality that makes it quite enjoyable even at this early stage. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.

    The Wine Advocate

    Good full, deep red. Complex, expressive nose offers blackberry, black raspberry, sassafras, cola, earth, licorice, mocha and minerals. Sweet, pliant and rich, but with very good energy and an impression of strong extract to the flavors of red fruits and spices. Boasts very good density and volume but excellent definition as well. Finishes long and subtle, with firm tannins and heady aromatic lift. This wine tightened up with air, suggesting that it really should be cellared.

    International Wine Cellar

    This rich, spicy red delivers cherry, plum, tobacco and woodsy underbrush notes on a grainy base of tannins. Round and approachable, despite the firm structure. Best from 2014 through 2030.

    Wine Spectator

    Jammy, mature notes of dark cherry and blackberry preserves open the nose of this richly opulent Brunello. Background tones include polished mineral and sweet Christmas spice with lingering accents of black pepper and crushed clove.
