An impressively structured wine. Aromas of blueberries and blackberries with hints of violets. Full body with velvety, rich tannins. Very tannic and powerful, yet the tannins are polished and pretty. Layers of everything here. Give this another three to four years before opening. JAMES SUCKLING, 2010

The 2005 Brunello di Montalcino is a dark, brooding wine that flows with the essence of smoke, tar, earthiness, wild cherries and iron. This is one of most rich, concentrated Brunellos of the vintage. Dark and enveloping on the palate, this powerful, virile Brunellos closes with substantial heft. It should age beautifully on the depth of its fruit, but readers will experience a far more complete drinking experience if the wine is given a few years to shed some of its baby fat.

To me this wine is ready and at the peak of its powers right now. Its open and available with a profile that has softened into a relaxed mature (but not overly so) Brunello. Delicious drinking with the next bistecca! MMc
