The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva blossoms on the palate in a richly-textured, layered expression of Sangiovese that is a marvel to behold. The fruit remains extremely primary, and this is a Riserva that will require quite a bit of patience. The finesse of the tannins and the luxurious expansiveness of the fruit hint at what is to come. The future can only be bright for a wine of this exceptional pedigree. Might the 2004 be a modern-day version of the 1982? Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029.
A very raisiny Brunello that verges on Amarone in style and character. Full-bodied, round and Porty, with dried fruits and round tannins. A little overdone, but some may love this full-throttle style of Brunello. Fascinating. Best from 2011 through 2016.
Good full saturated red. The aromas of ripe red cherry, violet, rose and mocha are downright seductive. Deep, sweet and lush but with a juicy character and attractive floral lift to the ripe red cherry, licorice, anise and tobacco flavors. Verging on fat but with firm acids providing adequate support. Finishes with substantial breadth, a healthy dusting of tannins, and late notes of minerals and leather. Perhaps a slightly less fine rendition of Brunello Riserva than some previous vintages from this estate, but a very serious and satisfying wine.
