Brunello di Montalcino RISERVA - vintage 2004

Silky, wonderfully polished tannins coat every inch of the palate in this full, dense and balanced Brunello. Ripe and subtle fruit kicks in, with notes of dried strawberry and hints of prune. So delicious and gorgeous. Available in magnum only. Best from 2011 through 2016. –JS

Brunello di Montalcino RISERVA - vintage 2008

The 2008 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva displays a dark, brooding color with evolved aromas of dried spice, autumnal underbrush, cassis, figs and candied prune. As the wine evolves in the glass, it imparts increasingly seductive layers of licorice and dried ginger that build in complexity and momentum in quintessential Brunello fashion. There’s a tightness and firmness to the palate that gives the mouthfeel a more youthful sensation compared to the mature aromas present on the bouquet. Drink: 2016-2023.

Sesta di Sopra is usually a highlight of my Brunello tasting by a pretty wide margin. Results this year place the wines closer to median scores achieved by neighboring producers, although the special aromatic characteristics that distinguish these wines are still on display.

Brunello di Montalcino - RISERVA - vintage 2006

The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva needs quite a bit of time in the glass to show its cards. Layers of dark fruit, spices and licorice flesh out in this muscular Brunello. There is plenty of intensity in the glass, but slight early signs of oxidation suggest the wine may have spent too much time in barrel. I don-t quite find the finesse of the estate-s best wines. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

Brunello di Montalcino RISERVA - vintage 2007

Available in very small production numbers, this riserva Brunello presents aromas of ripe fruit and cherry with background tones of leather, tobacco and cured meat. The wine shows a bold, chewy mouthfeel with velvety soft tannins and sassy endnotes of toasted spice.
