TASTING NOTES

"Released one decade after the harvest, the 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Dieci is a one-off wine meant to celebrate an exceptional vintage. The aging process sees 48 months in large Slavonian oak casks and the wine then rests in the bottle for the remaining years before its release. Only 8,000 bottles are available. The bouquet clearly shows tertiary aromas of licorice and tar, but the wine also has dark berry and dried cherry at its core. The finish is smooth and silky. The tannins have had considerable time to integrate. The wine still has life within and should continue its slow evolution." Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Very deep ruby; this is a little dark for my idea of what a 100% Sangiovese wine and an 11-year-old wine should look like. Spicy sweet chocolate and flinty aromas complement ripe red cherry on the forward nose. Then harmonious but lively acidity and still-chewy tannins nicely frame and support the flinty blue and black fruit flavors. Finishes with a hint of allspice and underbrush. Only 4,000 bottles of this wine were made; it is the 2007 Brunello normale (not riserva) that was kept in the estate cellars (in oak and then bottle) for 10 years and is being now put on the market as a library release. (By contrast, the 2006 vintage, the majority of Brunellos of which were characterized by longer staying power than the riper 2007s, will be released on its 20th birthday and will be sold as 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Venti.) This 2007 is an outstanding wine but I am docking it a point for its color." Ian D'Agata, Vinous.com
