Wine SpectatorEnticing aromas of meat-and-mushroom pie mingle with rich plum and spices. Full-bodied, with silky, caressing tannins and intense fruit and mineral flavors. Well-crafted, finishing long. The flagship Brunello in 2003. This is the wine of the vintage.

Wine AdvocateValdicava's 2003 Brunello di Montalcino is a fat, super-ripe offering that flows with masses of opulent fruit. The difficult vintage has yielded a wine with limited complexity and finesse given what this estate is capable of. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019.

Wine EnthusiastThickly extracted and inky black in appearance, this is a dense and impenetrable expression of Sangiovese Grosso. The wine's aromas include dusty earth, tar, licorice, resin and dried currant berry. Be careful when pairing this wine: its power could overwhelm delicate food flavors. Try it with succulent steak or aged cheese.
