TASTING NOTES

"This wine floored me. The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a stunning beauty and a wine well worth the attention (if you can afford its lofty pricing aspirations). Thankfully, the beauty of the contents will help alleviate some of the sticker shock. This is a supple and silky expression with an infinite array of Sangiovese-based aromas. You'll recognize wild cassis, forest floor, autumnal leaf, button mushroom, grilled herb, rosemary, balsam herb and red rose petal. The effect is fragrant and delicate. The mouthfeel is equally ethereal and nuanced. With only 3,500 bottles made, not many of us will have the luxury of trying this beautiful wine. And, that is really too bad." Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #229

"Bright dark red. Captivating aromas of red cherry, flint and violet are complicated by hints of flint. Rich and ripe, with a very generous texture, but with enticing freshness providing an underlying steely element to the red cherry, red berry nectar, forest floor and sweet spice flavors. Very long and smooth on the finish. Unlike most 2011 Riservas that are eminently forgettable, this is one you’ll want in your cellar." Ian D'Agata, Vinous.com

"Fresh and vivid aromas of cherry and flower with cream undertones. Full body, firm and very silky with a beautiful intensity and precision. Excellent winemaking here. Drink or hold." JamesSuckling.com

"Medium-weight and juicy, this red offers floral, wild cherry, almond, iron and tobacco flavors. Firm, bright and lingering on the spicy finish. Decant now. Drink now through 2032. 300 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Tasted blind. Mid ruby with orange tinges. Hints of undergrowth and malt. Almost a tad jammy on the palate and then tangy strawberry fruit. Exotic, zesty, rich, multi-layered finish that goes on and on. Beautiful, chewy tannins." Walter Speller, JancisRobinson.com
