About

95

"A wonderful wine with vibrant fruit and acidity with hints of toasted oak, leather, chocolate and plum character. Full and silky with a pretty finish. Drink or hold." (02/13)

90+ Ian Dagata - Vinous Media

"Bright red. Clove, cinnamon and sage complicate sour red cherry and quinine on the perfumed nose. The bright, fresh palate offers floral red berries and marjoram, finishing with fine, polished tannins and a peppery bite. This was aged in large oak casks." (08/13)

90 Antonio Galloni - Vinous

"The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is an immediate, juicy wine with good depth and fine overall balance. Dark fruit, smoke, tobacco and herbs all add complexity on a finish supported by firm yet well-integrated tannins." (09/13)

Product Description:

"Mature-looking mid ruby with broad brickstone tinged rim. A little grubby on the nose but with air shows savoury meaty and tobacco notes. Acidity keeps it lively, but no great complexity otherwise. Drink from 2013 to 2018. (WS)" (01/13) - 15 out of 20 Points, Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages

Wine:
"Made with 100% Brunello grapes (special selection of Sangiovese). Intense ruby red, tending to garnet with aging. Dry, warm, slightly tannic, robust and harmonious. A wine of high alcohol content suited for long aging, is marketed in the fifth year following the harvest, after spending three and a half years in large oak barrels, followed by at least 4 months of aging in bottle." - Winery
