James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, January 2012
Dried strawberry and flowers, with hints of vanilla cream aromas follow through to a full body with ripe, silky tannins and a pretty berry aftertaste. The balance and finesse to this wine is beautiful. Try in 2015.

Loads of balsam intensity with eucalyptus, ground ginger, cola, dried fruit and crème de cassis. This wine also adds a pretty floral note of red rose petal or potpourri that really steals the show.

This wine also adds a pretty floral note of red rose petal or potpourri that really steals the show. Loads of balance and complexity. Smooth, long finish, good momentum and persistency. Drink after 2015. - M.L.

Shows fine intensity and expression of place, with a lingering finish of spice and underbrush. Best...

The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino presents an intriguing melange of camphor, smoke, licorice, tar and black cherries, all supported by firm yet well-balanced tannins. Some slightly rustic elements remain, yet there is so much going on in the glass that the wine's small flaws are easy to forgive. Smoke, tar and licorice infuse the huge finish. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.
