Wine EnthusiastPlush and modern, plump and decadent: this is a blockbuster Brunello with huge concentration, density and intensity especially where those oak-related aromas are concerned. Yes, you get loads of spice and mesquite wood here but the natural intensity of the cherry and blackberry is not overwhelmed. The wine is soft, chewy and dense in the mouth. Drink after 2014.

Wine AdvocateThe 2005 Brunello di Montalcino is a 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 Brunello closes with substantial heft. It should age beautifully on the depth of its fruit, but readers will enjoy a far more complete drinking experience if the wine is given at least few years in bottle to shed some of its baby fat. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.

Wine SpectatorExhibits dried dark fruits, with toasty oak and dried flowers. Full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and chewy tannins, followed by a long finish. This is rather subdued now, but should open with bottle age. Best after 2012.
