Great structure with intense ruby red color and garnet reflections. It offers the palate an elegant, dry and velvety taste. This is a wine that gives good results from the time of release, although it is capable of improving over many years in a bottle as the aromas develop and the tannins soften.
Perfect for game, roasted meats and mature cheeses.
"Tight and compact, offering bright cherry, raspberry, plum and underbrush flavors. It shows intensity and grip, finishing with fruit and fine tannins. Best from 2014 through 2027."
"This Brunello opens with a sweet nose of bright cherry fruit, mocha and vanilla bean. The wine’s flavors are more savory, with some background notes of forest floor and wild mushroom. The mouthfeel is firm and steady, but also fresh and compact."
"The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is a big, fleshy wine endowed with considerable richness and volume. Layers of dark red fruit, crushed flowers, licorice and tobacco are woven together beautifully in this expressive, generous Brunello."
Vinous / Antonio Galloni
"Medium bright red. Captivating perfume of red fruits, minerals and flowers reminded me a bit of Burgundy. Supple, ripe and expressive, with a seamless, gentle texture but also excellent cut and definition to the flavors of red fruits and flowers. A very fresh and juicy midweight, especially in the context of the year, with a lightly peppery nuance lifting the finish. I like this style."
International Wine Cellar
"A wine that shows cocoa, dried cherries and strawberries, with a full yet refined texture. Subtle and flavorful. Drink now.
Big & Bold
Good fruity flavors, good finish. Wait until 2015 for Tannins to mellow. My overall 91.
