    100 What a nose of tangerines, dark fruits, spices and cigar box. Full bodied, with incredible concentration and power. It goes on for minutes. Mind blowing. Meat, dark chocolate, dried fruits, mushrooms. Turns to aniseed and black licorice. It is a wine with soul. How can Sangiovese be better? Better in 2014.

    93 This beautiful wine (gorgeous both in terms of execution and presentation) offers rich layers of mature fruit, chocolate, espresso and exotic spice. The wine's texture is incredibly smooth, soft and persistent.

    92+ (15.5% alcohol): Saturated red. Strong oak influence to the aromas of violet, cherry skin and licorice. Juicy, pure and tightly wound, with a penetrating quality to the dark berry skin, coffee and dark chocolate flavors. Surprisingly perfumed for a wine with such high alcohol. Finishes very long and sweet, with powerful toothcoating tannins and a strong impression of extract. Lay this one down. (This was much better than my first bottle, which showed a more roasted quality and lacked lift.)

    90 This dense, powerful red exhibits black cherry and tobacco flavors, followed by a note of black tea on the finish. Woolly in texture, with the tannins lending a gruff conclusion. Needs time. Best from 2014 through 2027. 1,300 cases made.

    90 The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is one of the richest and most powerful wines of the vintage. Super-ripe blackberries, blueberries, mocha, new leather and sweet spices flow from this textured, opulent Brunello. The muscular fruit powers through to the finish, accompanied all the way by firm tannins from the oak. The sheer concentration and depth of fruit are remarkable, but ultimately this comes across as a heavy, labored Brunello with limited finesse. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2026.
