Winemaker Notes

The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino presents an alluring, seductive bouquet of sweet herbs, licorice, crushed flowers, mint and minerals. This mid-weight, graceful Brunello needs time in the glass to show off its pedigree, but it is a classic, understated wine graced with exquisite finesse. The wine puts on weight with air, filling out its frame very nicely, with waves of fruit that caress the palate all the way through to the harmonious, resonant finish. This substantial, firm Brunello will require patience, but its potential is amply evident, even today.

ST 91
International Wine Cellar

Deep red. Discreet notes hints at cherry pit, dried rose and Indian spices. Densely packed but not at all overly sweet. Rather powerfully built but a bit clenched today. Not really sexy yet, but has the chewy, tactile back end and firm, ripe tannins to reward seven to ten years of cellaring. Quite long and youthful on the aftertaste.

Wine Spectator

This floral and cherry scented red is elegant and supple, picking up a tobacco note on the palate. Moderate tannins emerge on the finishin, where a spicy accent lingers. Best from 2013 through 2024.
