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.

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.
