"The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva flows with the essence of dark cherries, blackberries, flowers, violets, licorice and spices, all supported by firm, structured tannins. The 2006 boasts striking inner perfume, big fruit and a huge, explosive finish. The 2006 Riserva is surprisingly vibrant, focused and balanced for such a big wine. The Riserva was made from the estate’s highest altitude vineyards and aged one year in barrique and a second year in cask. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026." ~AG

"James Suckling, jamessuckling.com, February 2012. Such purity of fruit here, makes me smile, with dark fruits and milk chocolate. Full body, with fine tannins and a clean finish. Delicious. Chewy. Better in 2014 to soften the acidity."

I would be hard-pressed to name another grower who has made such huge strides in recent years as has Andrea Cortonesi. The artisan tradition of Montalcino is alive and well in this small, no-frills winery, while the wines have never been better.-The Wine Advocate
The Riserva is produced from the oldest vineyards
