The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is powerful, rich and authoritative. Remarkably fresh and vibrant, the wine offers gorgeous richness in its sumptuous layers of dark, super-ripe fruit. Plums, cherries, licorice, violets, spices and French oak are just some of the nuances that are woven together in this beautifully dense, explosive Brunello. The warmth of Castelnuovo seems to be quite present, and my only criticism is that the alcohol is at times a touch prominent. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022. (AG)
This Brunello Riserva promises love at first sight and sip. The wine is thick, penetrating and rich and offers deep layers of sweet blackberry, cherry cola, mesquite wood, leather and discreet toast. It’s the fullness and generosity of fruit that will blow you away followed by those vibrant cherry after tones.
Exhibits lots of new wood on the nose, with dried dark fruits and coffee bean. Full-bodied, with soft yet chewy tannins and strawberry and cream flavors. Rich and ripe. Best after 2011. (JS)
