The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino presents an alluring seductive bouquet of sweet herbs licorice crushed flowers mint and minerals. This mid-weight graceful Brunello needs time in the glass to show off its pedigree but it is a classic understated wine graced with exquisite finesse. The wine puts on weight with air filling out its frame very nicely with waves of fruit that caress the palate all the way through to the harmonious resonant finish. This substantial firm Brunello will require patience but its potential is amply evident even today. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026. --- AG

This is an opulent and rich wine with plump blueberry flavors followed by chocolate fudge and sweet exotic spice. You can either cellar it or enjoy it within the next few years. Editors' choice. -M.L.

Aromas of licorice and blackberries follow through to a full body with silky tannins and a fruity finish. This is a refined and silky young wine. Give it two to three years of bottle age.
