IWC 95 WA 95 WS 92 WE 91 Pts - According to International Wine Cellar - Medium red. Reticent nose hints at red berries, marzipan and nutty oak. Fine-grained, fleshy and highly concentrated, without any undue impression of weight. Lovely sappy sweetness accentuates the wine's inner-mouth perfume. Really builds on the very long, even, sweetly tannic back end, which stains the palate with red fruits, flowers and complex soil tones. This strikes me as more typical perfumed sangiovese than the darker, more locked-up, more obviously structured 2006 riserva.
According to Wine Advocate - The estate’s 2007 Brunello di Montalcino has developed beautifully over the last year. Freshly cut flowers, dark raspberries, spices and mint all take shape in a 2007 that impresses for its freshness and pure energy. Sweet roses and violets linger on the finish. I imagine the 2007 will enjoy a very broad drinking window. Today it is drop-dead gorgeous. The combination of dry extract above 34 and acidity north of 6% is exceedingly rare and suggests the wine will age for several decades. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2047.
According to Wine Spectator - Rich and round, with plum, cherry, leather and licorice aromas and flavors. Broad and savory, with both bright acidity and dense tannins gracing the finish. Best from 2014 through 2028. 5,000 cases imported.
According to Wine Enthusiast - Inky-black appearance. Ripe, concentrated notes of blackberry and raspberry jam are framed by bold tannins with an astringent bite at the end.
Winemakers Notes - Color - Ruby red color tending to garnet. Aroma - The nose is elegant, calibrated and complex with notes of cherry, raspberry, burnt wood and licorice. Taste - It impetuosly invades the mouth with full body and seamless tannins and acidity. The finish is long and shows an excellent freshness that balances the alcohol that is naturally present and connected to the southern exposure of the estate's vineyards. Rated 90+
