Winemaker's Notes

Bright, deep red. Complex nose combines plum, currant, cherry, tobacco and nutty oak. Juicy and penetrating, with lovely thrust and inner-mouth floral character, accentuated by bright but integrated acidity. Classic sangiovese with real clarity and grip, not to mention energy in the mouth. Finishes firmly tannic and very long. Perfect for grilled or roasted red meats as well as stewed duck and guinea fowl.

Critical Acclaim

"The estate's 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is simply extraordinary. Enticing layers of mint, violets, black cherries, menthol and minerals lead to an explosive core of fruit. The wine continues to grow in the glass, showing off its first-class pedigree. Amazingly pure, textured and rich, this vivid, chiseled Brunello dazzles from start to finish, where balsamic notes make a final appearance. If forced to drink only one wine from Montalcino, I might very well choose Diego Molinari’s sumptuous Brunello. This is an incredible wine! Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024. "
