Wine EnthusiastSpice and bright notes of dried tobacco, ginger, cola and black pepper mark this wine, which displays deep richness and intensity. Crisp, clean finish.

Wine SpectatorThis red is rich and sumptuous, yet well-defined by bright acidity and lovely balance. This frames the cherry, strawberry, spice and tobacco flavors, while the tannins should soften soon. Fine length. Best from 2014 through 2025.

Wine AdvocateThe 2007 Brunello di Montalcino needs a lot of time in the glass to find its focus. Once the bouquet opens up the wine reveals pretty red berries intermingled with sweet floral notes, spices, leather and licorice. This is a fairly burly 2007 with considerable structure. A few years of bottle age are needed for some of the angular contours to soften. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.
