This time I tasted it in a blind tasting in Tuscany and it stood above the rest. Amazing aromas of blueberries and flowers with black truffles and pie. Foie gras mushrooms and white truffles too. Powerful with great depth of gorgeous fruit and ultra-fine tannins. It fills your mouth with fruit and ripe tannins. Complex and long. A breathtaking wine. Truly glorious. Better in 2015.

This beautiful riserva shows enormous thickness and blackness, like midnight of a new moon. The wine delivers impenetrable density, extraction, black fruit, spice, berry preserves, licorice, asphalt, ground black pepper... This beautiful riserva shows enormous thickness and blackness, like midnight of a new moon. The wine delivers impenetrable density, extraction, black fruit, spice, berry preserves, licorice, asphalt, ground black pepper, cherry liqueur and crème de cassis. There are seemingly no limits to the intensity and complexity here. The mouthfeel is dense, plush, firmly structured and very long. Keep this Brunello safely in your cellar 20 years or more.

Waves of vibrant intensely perfumed fruit hit the palate backed up by the firm broad tannins of the vintage. Violets spices new leather and licorice develop in the glass yet the 2006 remains painfully young and stubborn. Clean mineral notes frame a blast of dark cherries plums and camphor on the palate-staining finish. Readers will need to be especially patient but the 2006 Madonna del Piano is stacking up to be one of the all-time greats from proprietor Vincenzo Abbruzzese. I followed the wine over the course of two days during which it continued to improve while seeming to gain freshness and structure. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026. --- Antonio Galloni

Dark and inky, this wine boasts mushroom, forest floor, tar and dried plum aromas and flavors. There's a serious structure, yet this is well-balanced in the end, if more on the side of concentration and muscularity than... Dark and inky, this wine boasts mushroom, forest floor, tar and dried plum aromas and flavors. There's a serious structure, yet this is well-balanced in the end, if more on the side of concentration and muscularity than finesse. Best from 2014 through 2030. – BS
