Tasting Notes

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The estate’s top bottling, the 2001 Brunello di Montalcino La Casa, is a strong effort. More concentrated than the normal bottling, it offers notable finesse in its suggestions of flowers, spices, red fruits and well-integrated oak. Deceptively understated, it gives the impression of still having much to say, and a few years of cellaring are recommended.. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020." (12/06) Three Stars! "La Casa" has the best position (S-SW) on the Montosoli hill, and in this vintage it seemed to absorb all the power the hill has. The wine is dense, thick and fleshy yet in this classic vintage I would have thought there would have been more definition to the wine. It is really good but in one of the premier spots in Montalcino one would have thought of greatness. However it is really good, and perhaps with some age some of the dense fleshiness will lean out and the real "La Casa" will come forward. Age 4-6 years and then drink over the next 10-20 years. 1,666 cases produced. (Greg St.Clair K&L's Italian Wine Buyer)
