Intense ruby red with deep garnet hues; the bouquet is intense and ethereal with aromas ranging from dark fruit and berries to chocolate, coffee, leather, liquorice and balsamic notes; silky and elegant, potent yet balanced and characterised by sweet tannins.
"The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is an open, inviting wine laced with red berries, flowers and sweet French oak. This shows lovely inner perfume and a rich, textured personality that makes it an excellent choice for drinking over the near-term. Sweet floral notes intermingle with spices and vanillin from the oak on the generous finish. This is one of the more engaging, accessible wines of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022."
The Wine Advocate
"Good medium red. Old-style aromas of sour cherry and chestnut with a hint of minerals. Juicy, youthful and light on its feet, with lovely definition and cut to its cherry and floral flavors. Not an extrovert or particularly sweet but quite insinuating and fresh. Finishes with lovely floral persistence and firm tannins supported by fruit."
