Freshly cut roses sweet red fruits tobacco and licorice emerge gracefully from this refined utterly impeccable Brunello. Sweet elegant tannins frame the fruit beautifully through to the finish. The 2005 Riserva remains a typical mineral-laced taut wine from the northern district. Its potential for continued positive development in bottle seems excellent. The estate gave the Riserva 40 months in oak. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. 93+ -Antonio Galloni

This is a very pleasurable smooth and rich Riserva that lavishes layers of chocolate fudge vanilla bean and bright cherry. Overall it shows good intensity and smooth consistency. - M.L.

The 2005 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is all about texture and class. As always, the Riserva is richer and deeper than the straight Brunello bottling, with softer contours and a bit more voluptuousness. The flavors are dark, bold and intense, while the French oak influence is definitely felt. Drinking window: 2015-2030.

This is spicy in style with vanilla cedar and clove aromas and flavors accenting a core of cherry and tobacco. In the end there's a purity to the fruit but it needs time to find its balance. Structured and long. Best from... This is spicy in style with vanilla cedar and clove aromas and flavors accenting a core of cherry and tobacco. In the end there's a purity to the fruit but it needs time to find its balance. Structured and long. Best from 2014 through 2027. 420 cases made. -BS
