Product Overview

A Brunello di Montalcino produced at Pieve Santa Restituta. The three non-contiguous vineyard sites that supply grapes for this wine are all located on a portion of the estate that bore the name Rennina according to documents dating from the 8th century. An intense bouquet of spice and berries. Rich and concentrated with good structure, depth and balance.

Wine Advocate (WA) Review

This beautiful, dense garnet-colored 1997 Brunello's evolved, smoky nose offers up notes of sweet toasty oak intermixed with black currants, fruitcake, and fresh mushroom-like aromas. Meaty, with medium to full body, sweet tannin, flavors of underbrush, burning embers, and sweet currant as well as black cherry fruit, and a long, pure finish, this alluring effort will provide enjoyment for 10-14 years.- Robert Parker

Wonderful aromas of ripe fruit, cinnamon and Indian spices. Full-bodied, with very polished tannins, it coats the mouth with fruit. Well-structured. Needs time. Gaja does make serious Brunello. Best after 2004. 2,000 cases made. –JS
