Wine SpectatorFlavors of sweet cherry and berry fruit, leather, tobacco and eucalyptus are matched to a fresh, vibrant structure, with plenty of tannins for support. This stays balanced, with a long, resonant aftertaste. Best from 2017 through 2030.

Wine EnthusiastAndrea Cortonese makes ripe, structured Brunellos and this is an impressive effort from the variable 2008 vintage. It opens with aromas reminiscent of black plum, chocolate, vanilla and leather. These carry over to the palate along with toasted notes, spice and espresso. The fruit is supported by assertive tannins that need time to soften. Drink 2015-2023.

Wine AdvocateThe 2008 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva shows mature tones of raisin, dark fruit, juniper and touches of smoked meat or bresaola. Wood-driven tones of spice, tobacco and leather fill in the rear. There's a tight sense of austerity or sharp tightness that is characteristic of wines from the 2008 vintage. Drink: 2016-2026.
