TASTING NOTES

"A wine with plenty of ripe fruit, earth and tobacco character on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a raisiny, spicy aftertaste. Best after 2006. 5,580 cases made." Wine Spectator
(WS, 05/15/2004)

Rating: 92
Drink from: 2006


"Bright medium ruby. Superripe, sweet, soil-driven aromas of blackberry, cassis, smoke, truffle, earth, cinnamon and nutmeg, plus a whiff of magnolia blossom. At once sweet and gripping, with fruit of steel. The taut berry and iron flavors reminded me of a very ripe Graves. A very complex, very young wine with great personality and outstanding length." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com

"The 1999 Brunello di Montalcino, dark in color, floral, smoky, and redolent of truffles along with its plum fruit, is round, ripe, and elegant on the palate, smooth and shapely in format, a Beau Brumal with biceps. Drink: 2005-2018." Daniel Thomases, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #158

"Very lively and appetising, though the acidity is quite pronounced. Crunchy fruit but no compromises in terms of structure. This wine was aged for three years in large Slavonian oak botte." JancisRobinson.com

Drink from: 2006-2012


"Very deep red. Firm, rich, chocolaty nose. Opulent, rich, succulent palate of plums and cherries, with ample acidity and tannin. A lean aftertaste but not astringent. Still youthful and has a lively finish. Good length." Stephen Brook, The World of Fine Wine, Issue 4
