Meat dark chocolate dried fruits mushrooms. Turns to aniseed and black licorice. It is a wine with soul. How can Sangiovese be better? Better in 2014.

Juicy pure and tightly wound with a penetrating quality to the dark berry skin coffee and dark chocolate flavors. Surprisingly perfumed for a wine with such high alcohol. Finishes very long and sweet with powerful toothcoating tannins and a strong impression of extract. Lay this one down.

The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is one of the richest and most powerful wines of the vintage. Super-ripe blackberries blueberries mocha new leather and sweet spices flow from this textured opulent Brunello. The muscular fruit powers through to the finish accompanied all the way by firm tannins from the oak. The sheer concentration and depth of fruit are remarkable but ultimately this comes across as a heavy labored Brunello with limited finesse. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2026.

This dense powerful red exhibits black cherry and tobacco flavors followed by a note of black tea on the finish. Woolly in texture with the tannins lending a gruff conclusion. Needs time. Best from 2014 through 2027. 1300... This dense powerful red exhibits black cherry and tobacco flavors followed by a note of black tea on the finish.

The aromas are complex offering restrained notes of dark spice. That same tension repeats on the palate where tightly wound flavors of ripe fruit are vitalized by tangy acids. The overall impression of fresh and vibrant fruit is complemented by exotic wood spice and grippy tannins that are finely textured. This will definitely need about 3-4 years to unwind.
