Wine AdvocateThe 2006 Brunello di Montalcino comes across as tightly wound and inward at this stage. With time in the glass the wine's inner perfume gradually comes to life, even if this remains a reticent Brunello within the context of the vintage. Still, it is impossible not to admire the inner sweetness of the fruit and the impeccable polish of the tannins. All this needs is time, maybe a little more than usual in this vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026.

Wine SpectatorRipe and juicy, sporting cherry, raspberry, rose and spice aromas and flavors, all playing out on the elegant frame. This is a delicate style, favoring finesse over power. Still, there are tannins underneath that need time to integrate. Mineral finish. Best from 2013 through 2025. 2,930 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a nicely balanced wine with bright cherry and berry flavors that are offset by sweet spice, almond and toasted oak. The wood elements already show integration and will continue to diminish with time. Give this wine five or so more years of cellar aging.
