The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is fabulous in this vintage. Waves of dark fruit caress the palate as this juicy delicious wine reveals its considerable charms. The fruit shows lovely weight and richness while maintaining an essentially mid-weight personality. Sweet scents of French oak linger on the round caressing impeccable finish. This is an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next decade-plus. The harvest took place from the 2nd to the 5th of October. The wine spent 24 days on the skins after which it was racked into cask where it spent 45 months prior to being bottled. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024. My visit with Giacomo Neri was fascinating. I had the opportunity to taste a number of fabulous wines but the bottle that left the deepest impression on me was the 1981 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva. Though not explicitly identified as such the 1981 Riserva was the first wine the estate made from the Cerretalto vineyard. The wine spent a full six years in cask yet remains fresh and striking today despite the average (at best) quality of the vintage. Most interesting of all is that the house's trademark richness was already in place years before Giacomo Neri took over wine making duties from his father.

Beautiful blackberry and chocolate with hints of Indian spices. Full with polished and refined tannins and a long finish. Best after 2013.

Aged in large oak barrels for up to 45 months. Dark opaque color. This bouquet is full of vibrant and forward fruit aromas. The somewhat full-bodied release is expressive with pure flavors of ripe cherry and subtle hints of fresh earth that are mouth watering. With tannins that are silky and fine there is incredible length and complexity on the finish. This is an ultra modern style that is absolutely transcending. Drinkable for the next 20 years if you can keep it away from your table.
