Expressive, with a dose of oak spice and wood tannins lifting the cherry and strawberry fruit. Leather, tobacco and spice accents abound as this cascades into a long, multilayered aftertaste. Best from 2018 through 2030... Expressive, with a dose of oak spice and wood tannins lifting the cherry and strawberry fruit.

Pretty balance to this 2011 with a solid core of cherry and raspberry fruit. Firm and silky tannins. Rich and flavorful finish. Really excellent. Drink or hold.

Her 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is an articulate and generous red that is endowed with thick layers of dark fruit, plum, cassis, sweet spice and moist chewing tobacco. This estate definitely presents a modern style of Brunello, but this expression shows less obvious oak compared to the wines made five years ago or more. The house style continues to show a slow evolution that puts emphasis on elegance and purity. Having said that, this Brunello also offers the immediate qualities needed for near-term consumption. You can drink it relatively soon or hold off altogether. This wine could go either way. - Monica Larner

The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is plump and juicy, with plenty of the textural resonance and openness that is such a signature of the year. Open-knit and juicy, the 2011 is already quite expressive.

Open-knit and juicy, the 2011 is already quite expressive. As always, the house style favors a forward expression of fruit, which is exactly what readers will find here. Succulent dark cherry, plum, mocha, spice and new leather meld into the supple, inviting finish. This is an absolutely delicious, early drinking Brunello from Donatella Cinelli Colombini.

Wild-berry, truffle, leather, menthol and sunbaked soil aromas lead the way.

Wild-berry, truffle, leather, menthol and sunbaked soil aromas lead the way. Tightly wound but ripe tannins wrap around the firmly structured palate, underscoring mature Morello cherry, black raspberry, white pepper, licorice and chopped Mediterranean herb. A subtle hint of game closes the finish. Drink 2019–2026.
