From the Critics:

  • "The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino bursts onto the palate with waves of dark red fruit and a soft, voluptuous texture that is truly beautiful. This is a decidedly forward, juicy wine built on a solid core of fruit, but all of the elements work together beautifully. This is one of the better choices among the (relatively) early-drinking wines for the vintage. As good as this is now, the fruit holds more than enough vibrancy to suggest the wine has a bright future ahead of it. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024." (05/11) - 93 Pts Antonio Galloni - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
  • "Brunello Fossacolle opens with a darkly concentrated color and aromas of tobacco, spice, chocolate and meaty, pulpy black fruit. The wine presents a bigger, inky style and shows good depth and density on the palate thanks to its extracted consistency, creaminess and overall intensity. -M.L." (04/11) - 92 Pts Wine Enthusiast
  • "Truffles and dark chocolate, with meat and ripe fruits on the nose. Full bodied, with a solid core of fruit that shows a light salami and fruit character. Chewy. So yummy now, but try it in year or two." (01/11) - 92 Pts James Suckling
  • "Full deep red with ruby highlights. Slightly reduced nose offers dark berries, bitter chocolate and espresso. Sweet, fat and liqueur-like, if a bit muscular and brooding today. Serious chewy volume and concentration here but a bit chunky. This big boy (15% alcohol) has surprising acidity, not to mention serious dusty tannins. I'd try it again in four or five years." (08/11) - 90 Pts Stephen Tanzer - International Wine Cellar
