*Cellar Selection* Elegance, finesse and deeply layered nuances are this Brunello's strongest suits. The aromas are tightly etched: The mineral tones are exact and fine, the fruit is fleshly and cushioned by tones of moist tobacco and earth. The menthol notes are divine and penetrating: A beautiful, vineyard-designate wine from Angelo Gaja.
The 2001 Brunellos show the pedigree of the superior vintage. The Rennina is a lovely effort with an attractive floral nose and suggestions of sweet red fruit and tobacco on a medium-bodied frame of notable elegance. It is fresher and exhibits more refinement, particularly in its silky tannins, than the 2000. It should start drinking well in a few years and last to at least age 15. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2017. (AG)
Aromas of cherry and blackberry follow through to a medium- to full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a fresh finish. Lots of new wood. Lively wine. Solid. Best after 2009. (JS)
