Bright ruby color. Very intense aromas of spices and small wild berries. Dry, full-bodied, great structure and complexity, excellent, long finish.
Perfect for grilled or roasted red meats and most game.
"The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is a pure, rapturous beauty. Layers of sweet red fruit meld into rose petals, licorice, spices and mint as the 2007 seduces all of the senses. The ripe, open personality of the year is present, but there is more than enough structure to provide balance. Floral notes reappear on the vibrant, beautifully articulated finish. The 2007 is more than a worthy follow up to the epic 2006. Even better it should drink well quite a bit earlier than that wine. Sadly, there are fewer than 1,000 cases to go around. This is a magical Brunello in every way. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2032. "
The Wine Advocate
"Good full red. Perfumed, complex but subdued nose offers cherry, raspberry, coffee, mocha and minerals. Densely packed and sweet but backward for 2007, a bit youthfully clenched in the mid-palate. Finishes chewy and powerful, with serious mounting tannins, a blast of red fruits and complicating notes of menthol and licorice. For the cellar. 94(+?) points "
