The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is a striking wine blessed with gorgeous clarity and precision in an effortless weightless style. Dark cherries tobacco incense dried flowers and minerals come together beautifully in the glass in this sensual understated wine. Tobacco licorice menthol and an assortment of other balsamic aromas and flavors add complexity and character to the vivid textured finish. This is a fabulous effort from proprietor Andrea Cortonesi. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2026. I would be hard-pressed to name another grower who has made such huge strides in recent years as has Andrea Cortonesi. The artisan tradition of Montalcino is alive and well in this small no-frills winery while the wines have never been better.

Decadent aromas of plum and roasted meat then turns to toffee follows through to a full body with chewy tannins and a mineral dried flower undertone. Tannic. Lots of dried fruits on the palate. This needs some bottle age to soften. Very powerful and structured. Amazing. Best after 2015.

Starts out supple with licorice dried cherry and plum flavors picking up a touch of herbs as this glides to a lingering conclusion. Elegant and almost racy with grip and character. Best from 2013 through 2025. 1600 cases... Starts out supple with licorice dried cherry and plum flavors picking up a touch of herbs as this glides to a lingering conclusion.

Even with 15% alcohol the fruit is not overripe. The palate is long and very structured with big tannins and ample acidity pulling through the finish. Needs 3-4 years to show its concentrated fruit. Well done! Tasted twice in New York and at Vinitaly with consistent notes and scores.
