TASTING NOTES

"Full red-ruby. Plum, currant, smoke and tobacco on the nose, lifted by a floral nuance. Then penetrating, sappy and highly concentrated, with ripe flavors that are not at all overly sweet. A suave, serious Brunello that boasts energy and density without any excess weight. Finishes impressively long, with lush, noble tannins and a suggestion of woodsmoke. Like a hypothetical blend of Pauillac and Graves." Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

"Textbook Brunello with complex, yet subtle aromas of cherries, tobacco, cedar and spices. Full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a fresh and delicious finish. Excellent wine from this producer. Better than the 1997. Best from 2005 through 2010. 2,000 cases made." Wine Spectator

"The 1999 Brunello di Montalcino is a good example of the house style with its red currant fruit, notes of caramel, leather, and game, and long, firm, well textured flavors with a rising level of intensity on the finish. Drink: 2005-2015." Daniel Thomases, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #158
