Wine & SpiritsThe cask-aged 2003 Brunello di Montalcino is dense and sweet, with superb intensity in its dark cherry fruit that is buffered by elegant tannins. Its open, accessible personality makes it a great choice for near-term drinking. This is yet another example where the regular bottling offers greater balance and harmony than the top-of-the line selection. Anticipated maturity: 2008ndash;2016.
