Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, April 2010
The 2005 Brunello di Montalcino is wonderfully plump and juicy in its expressive red fruit. Floral notes are woven throughout giving the wine its sense of lift and proportion. Though not as explosive as the 2004 the 2005... The 2005 Brunello di Montalcino is wonderfully plump and juicy in its expressive red fruit. Floral notes are woven throughout giving the wine its sense of lift and proportion. Though not as explosive as the 2004 the 2005 Brunello di Montalcino offers outstanding persistence on the palate and a long generous finish. This is a terrific effort from Ciacci. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020. - Antonio Galloni Proprietor Paolo Bianchini has turned out a gorgeous set of wines. In 2005 Bianchini elected to forgo his top Brunello Pianrosso and bottle just his straight Brunello which has all of the best fruit he was able to bring in that year. The result speaks for itself.

A solid red with silky tannins and mineral berry and lightly toasted oak. Full and rich. Lovely now but better in 2012.
