Here is a generous, modern and bold expression of Sangiovese Grosso whose soft layers of chocolate and dark cherry fruit help soften the natural acidity and structure of the 2006 vintage.

Here is a generous, modern and bold expression of Sangiovese Grosso whose soft layers of chocolate and dark cherry fruit help soften the natural acidity and structure of the 2006 vintage. A polished mineral note adds attractive definition on the finish. Tight and very firm; age this wine 10–20 years.

A dense and powerful red with tight and structured tannins. It's full yet sleek and lean. Very firm and long. A beautiful wine with real greatness. Clarity in the bottle. Drink now, but will improve for years ahead.

The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a big broad-shouldered wine endowed with tremendous depth and richness. Black cherries licorice new leather and tobacco wrap around the palate in this dramatic sweeping Brunello. Despite the wine's size there is plenty of nuance and detail. The 2006 needed all of its 40 months in cask. This is a fabulous effort. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2031. -Antonio Galloni

One of the truly exciting wines of the year, the 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva boasts superb richness, power and depth from start to finish.

One of the truly exciting wines of the year, the 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva boasts superb richness, power and depth from start to finish. Cloves, violets, incense, plums, black cherries and menthol all explode from the glass in a virile, towering Brunello endowed with massive structure. Fresh, vibrant and beautifully delineated, this drop-dead gorgeous Riserva has more than enough stuffing to drink well for two decades. The estate gave the 2006 Riserva 42 months in oak, all of which is had handled beautifully.

The ripe cherry plum earth and spice aromas and flavors are beautifully displayed on the dense tannic structure in this red which is bright and energetic with an aftertaste of fresh fruit and wild herbs. Best from 2014... The ripe cherry plum earth and spice aromas and flavors are beautifully displayed on the dense tannic structure in this red which is bright and energetic with an aftertaste of fresh fruit and wild herbs. Best from 2014 through 2035. 500 cases made. -BS

Good full bright dark red. Dark cherry licorice mocha and tobacco on the inviting nose. Then serious and concentrated on the palate with firm integrated acidity and an enticing note of maraschino cherry. This wine... Good full bright dark red. Dark cherry licorice mocha and tobacco on the inviting nose. Then serious and concentrated on the palate with firm integrated acidity and an enticing note of maraschino cherry. This wine shows the coiled spring so many of the better 2006s possess. At once seamless and powerful wine with a long mounting finish featuring broad fine-grained tannins and the energy of the year. Built to age for 15 to 20 years. 93+
