Full-bodied, with layers of incredibly velvety tannins and a long, long finish. This is so complex and long, and the mouthfeel is spellbinding. Develops wonderfully in the glass, becoming more and more rich with air. One of the greatest Brunellos I have ever tasted. Best after 2012. 2,000 cases made. -JS

It is a ripe, ample Brunello with tons of fruit. Compared to the broad-shouldered 1999, the 2001 possesses a touch greater detail and more finesse in its tannins. This is a beautifully delineated, chiseled wine of the highest level. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023. -Antonio Galloni (In The Cellar Issue #109)

Oddly, the wine has a much more subdued color than last year's opaque Brunello. Richly sumptuous and elegant, it reveals a compelling array of sweet dark cherries, minerals, tar, underbrush, smoke and licorice with superb concentration. It is remarkably vivid and detailed for such a big wine. Ideally a few years of cellaring are warranted but those lucky enough to own this wine will have a hard time exercising such patience. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2018. -Antonio Galloni
