    portrayed itself differently at each producer yet for me it was in a more predictable way. The nose of the 2007 Sesta di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino is full of iron, raw meat, brick dust and a deep, concentrated wild cherry richness, almost cough-drop like in its concentration. The wine transforms itself on the palate and a high tone, fresher more elegant note of wild cherry joins with the earth, spice, wild herbs, with deep plumy notes. Here the richness of the vintage is melding with the structure, the tannins and acids are now beginning to appear and that’s what was so puzzling earlier. Now the deep, concentrated fruit has a backbone, shoulders and is dynamic, it is powerful and fills your mouth with a complex coating of flavor. The wine has a long finish the acidic core is pulling the richness together giving it a balance that wasn’t present earlier as the wine just goes on and on. It is really good.

    It's an article of faith with me that you just don't drink Brunellos before their tenth birthday, but that belief is begin sorely tested by this 2007 vintage. The 2007 Sesta di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino is temptingly approachable yet the wine gives up nothing in the name of drinkability. Classic Sangiovese nose of leather & spice. Richly textured with ripe fruit - sour cherry & spice. Good concentration and length. There is balance and structure here, with plenty of acidity and tannin, but nothing aggressive or astringent. A perfect wine for those of us with impulse control issues. Drink it now or over the next 5 to 10 years.

    Our customers love Brunello, but they hate waiting years for it to be ready. Luckily the 2007 vintage has arrived and is very forward and approachable. The Sesta Di Sopra is the best of all the Brunello's I have tasted, and still has good focus and length to go along with all of that tasty black cherry sangiovese fruit! Pop it into the decanter before you start cooking, and enjoy when the food is on the table!

    Love these user friendly Brunello’s in 2007. Impressive nose, with loads of ripe fruit, this is full-bodied with great tannin structure, but won’t hurt your teeth. The fruit is impressive, rich and concentrated. The wine boasts excellent length, with sweet ripe strawberries, black cherry, leather and a spicy nose with a little Tuscan dust and minerals on the finish. It is drinkable now, with a couple of hours in a decanter, or I would give this wine time to improve and continue to evolve for another 2-4 years. I am thinking a pork roast loin or this will work great with lamb.
