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

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.

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.

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+

Blueberry aromas with hints of flowers. Full body, with fine tannins and a clean finish. Bright and silky. Drink now. So right.
