The estate’s 2001 Brunello di Montalcino is a deeply-colored, sleek and stylish effort showing expressive notes of flowers, spices, toasted oak, minerals and underbrush along with a lovely core of perfumed sweet cherry fruit that blossoms onto the palate with irresistible sensuality. Intensely flavored yet delicate, this Brunello offers outstanding length, precision and balance. While it is hard to resist today, it will be even better in a few years. My most recent bottle was exceptional and I actually preferred this wine’s overall balance to that of the 2000 Ugolaia. It is a great effort. Anticipate maturity: 2008-2021. (AG)
Rich and almost decadent on the nose and palate, with lots of plum, berry and tobacco character. Full-bodied, chewy and long. Still needs some time. Best after 2009. 4,000 cases made.
Delicate mint and herb shadings back red berry fruit and vanilla-nutmeg spice. There’s a creamy almost blueberry muffin dough quality that lends character but is not heavy in the least. Dry firm tannins and a tight, clean close.
