Wine AdvocateThe 2008 Brunello di Montalcino is fabulous. An exciting melange of dark cherries, plums, tobacco, licorice, mocha and herbs take shape in the glass. Powerful, rich and structured, the 2008 wraps around the palate with serious depth. The Canalicchio Brunellos often have an element of wildness to them, as does the 2008, but the wine also has a track record of aging very well. This is an intriguing Brunello, to say the least. The 2008 has more than enough depth to stand up to 36 months in cask. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028.

Wine SpectatorThis elegant red features balsamic highlights, with cherry and tobacco flavors focused by bright acidity. The tannins are dense and well-integrated, finishing with accents of sage, rosemary and earth. Best from 2017 through 2032.

Wine EnthusiastCoffee, leather, licorice and plum cake flavors are deeply concentrated on this rich, opulent wine. There's fruit here too, in the form of cherry liqueur and blackberry pie. This is a robust and generous wine that will appeal to those who appreciate a darker side of Brunello.
