Winemaker's Notes

"($90) Bright, dark red. Subdued but complex nose offers raspberry, red cherry, rose petal and smoky underbrush; lovely lift and perfume. Sweet and vinous, with excellent energy and cut to the red fruit and floral flavors. Very fine-grained, fresh wine that really transcends the vintage. Finishes with firm but noble tannins and terrific subtle persistence. This was even more brisk with extended aeration, suggesting that it will be better for a bit of patience."
International Wine Cellar 92+

"Gorgeous, perfumed aromas of cherry, strawberry and raspberry follow through to a full body, with super well-integrated tannins and a long finish. Wonderfully crafted for the vintage. Best after 2009."
Wine Spectator

"The 2003 Brunello di Montalcino is all about understatement and balance. Crushed flowers, raspberries and spices all emerge from this gorgeous, soft-textured wine. Notes of underbrush, tobacco and tar add further complexity on the mid-palate as the wine opens to reveal outstanding length and complexity. This is truly a remarkable effort, particularly in the way the tannins are so seamlessly integrated into the wine. While the 2003 Brunello doesn't quite reach the level of his superb 2001, this wine should be on readers' short lists of wines to seek out in 2003. It is a commendable effort in every way. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2018."

Learn About Sangiovese

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
