Wine Description

(WA92) The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is a beautiful wine laced with red berries, flowers and subtle hints of earthiness. Soft and supple throughout, the Brunello shows lovely juiciness in its fruit and a delicate, understated personality. The 2006 represents yet another step in the more elegant, refined direction the estate has taken in recent years. The 2006 Brunello was aged in equal parts cask and French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020.

    JS95 RP92 WE92 WS95 Gleicht einem Juwel. Das fand auch der Wine Spectator 2009. Die Kritiker schleuderten vor Wonne ihre Hüte in die Luft und bejubelten dessen fabelhafte Aromen. Im Glas erwartet uns farblich ein tiefes Rubinrot mit leichtem Granatschimmer. Das Bukett wirkt ätherisch und voll.

    Deep red-ruby. Plum, cherry, cola, sassafras and menthol on the nose. Supple, spicy, dense and classically dry, with insidious concentration; this is stuffed with material. Very suave Brunello, finishing with fine, sweet tannins and very good length.
