ratings pedigree (past vintages):
The color is a deep ruby red with garnet hues.
On the nose, it is very rich and complex with scents of wild berries and spicy, toasted notes.
On the palate, it is powerful yet very elegant, with a persistent finish.
Ideal with game, roasted and grilled meats and medium strength cheeses.
alcohol by volume:
"Blended from three estate vineyards in Montalcino, this is a wine of subtle fragrance and delicacy. It feels complete and harmonious, its power hidden, delivered with finesse. Dark in tone, it behaves like an essence of plum skin and black minerals, while underneath there is plenty of extract to ground it, carrying the flavor through a long, supple finish that warms the soul rather than the throat."
Wine & Spirits
"The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is a rich, deep, powerful wine. Layers of dark fruit melt into tobacco, mocha, dried flowers and mint in this muscular Brunello. The wine’s richness flows through to the generous, enveloping finish. This is a strong effort from Angelini. It will be fascinating to see where the estate’s top label ends up in 2006. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2026. "
The Wine Advocate
"Bright medium red. Plum and marzipan on the nose. Supple, suave and moderately concentrated. Boasts a rich, seamless, accessible texture and an almost chocolatey ripeness, but seems almost too easygoing today. That's hardly a complaint, as this wine finishes with suave tannins and lovely persistence."
International Wine Cellar
"Aromas of cedar and milk chocolate with berries and cherries. Full body, with velvety tannins and a chewy finish. Better in a year or two but so delicious now.
"Still young and nervous, this wine needs a few more years of cellar aging. There’s great potential here thanks to the wine’s natural aromas of cassis, dried fruit, cherry and toasted nut. In the mouth, it is tart, crisp and long-lasting."
