"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."
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar 95 Points
"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."
James Suckling 94 Points
"A wine with roasted meats and dark fruits on the nose and palate. Full body, with soft and velvety tannins and a juicy and fruity aftertaste. So delicious and seductive. Drink now or hold."
Wine Spectator 92 Points
"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."
Wine Enthusiast 91 Points
"Inky-black appearance. Ripe, concentrated notes of blackberry and raspberry jam are framed by bold tannins with an astringent bite at the end."
The wine's color is ruby red with garnet hues. The nose is elegant, calibrated and complex with notes of cherry, raspberry, burnt wood, and licorice. It impetuously 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.
A great dish of the Indonesian cuisine is the right match for this Brunello. Tender meat for a hungry tannin and a lot of creamy spices that will create a sweet bound with the wine.
A beautiful Brunello made in the traditional style, produced exclusively from Sangiovese grapes picked by hand from vines at least 20 years old. A wine with big character, great balance and elegance.
