"The 2005 Brunello di Montalcino is surprisingly dark in profile for this bottling. A sweet, Pinot-like bouquet leads to perfumed black cherries, spices, licorice and tobacco. This mid-weight, graceful Brunello offers gorgeous balance, with an expressive core of fruit that flows through to a long, refined close. The 2005 is one of best versions of this wine I have tasted in some time. In 2005 the estate did not make either their Riserva (usually a selection of barrels in the cellar) or their La Casa single-vineyard selection, and the addition of that fruit here undoubtedly contributes to the wines overall sense of harmony. The rest of the fruit was sourced from the Il Cassero and Caparzo vineyards. Though not a blockbuster, this is a very elegant Brunello. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020."

Wine Spectator 92
"Plum and ripe berry notes, with hints of strawberry jam, follow through to a full body, with a solid core of ripe fruit, chewy yet polished tannins and a long finish. This is deep and rich. Best after 2012. " JS
