Intense balsamic and mint notes make this red distinctive, along with currant, raspberry and floral touches. Silky, ripe and impressive, this shows elegance and a vibrant structure.

Silky, ripe and impressive, this shows elegance and a vibrant structure. Offers excellent length and resonance on the finish. Best from 2016 through 2032. – BS

Lots of ripe berry and chocolate character with hints of plum jam. Full and round with an attractive soft texture and a fruity finish. Delicious now but will improve with age.

Montosoli is a monumental wine that delivers pulp and richness with ripe fruit aromas, inky concentration and a touch of roasted spice at the back. The wine is savory and tangy with loads of aromatic intensity, but that telltale acidity from the 2008 vintage hits you at the back of the throat and keeps the palate refreshed.

Intense peach, spicy red cherry and botanical herbs on the complex nose. On the palate, medicinal herbs and red cherry flavors are complicated by minerals and supported by slightly peppery tannins and edgy acidity. Finishes bright and aromatic, with hints of animal fur, leather and sexy oaky nuances. Richer and deeper than most other 2008 Brunellos but needs a couple of years to settle down. Right now it's not much better than the Brunello 2008 normale, but I have no doubt this will be the superior wine in ten years' time. 91+ -- Ian D'Agata
