International Wine Cellarage (IWC) Review

IWC 87
Good medium red. Slightly medicinal aromas of cherry, redcurrant, licorice and lavender. Supple, broad and a bit dry-edged, showing some spicy oak. Broad and sweet but chunkier in texture than the much suaver Pianrosso. The medicinal quality follows through on the drying back end. All three of the bottles I tasted shared a slightly disjointed peppery-herbal/syrupy fruit character

Wine Advocate (WA) Review

The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino reveals sweet, open aromatics that meld seamlessly into a perfumed core of ripe red fruits. This is one of the more intensely scented, fruit-driven Brunellos of the vintage. The wine reveals superior density and richness in an engaging style. The softness of the tannins makes the wine accessible even today, yet the flavor profile is decidedly youthful. Readers looking for a measure of tertiary development will need to give the wine a few years in bottle. This bottling is made from the estate’s youngest vines. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.-Antonio Galloni

Wine Spectactor (WS) Review

Very attractive plum aromas, with hints of dried flowers and cedar, follow through to a medium-to-full body, with fine tannins and a clean, fresh finish. A lovely wine for early drinking. Drink now.
