The Brizio Brunello presents as ruby red in color with purple nuances. On the nose, the scintillating aromas are reminiscent of cherries and fruit jam. On the palate, the wine is superbly structured and exhibits the perfect amount of balance.

"Podere Brizio delivers a super pleasurable and succulent Brunello with a soft, chewy consistency and a long, velvety finish. The bouquet is composed of dark fruit, mature blackberry, chocolate, espresso, smoke, crushed clove and toasted nut. "
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 93
"The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is an elegant wine laced with dark cherries, plums, licorice, new leather, mint and French oak. All of the elements come together beautifully in this silky, mid-weight Brunello. The vibrant, eternal finish makes it hard to resist a second taste..."
Wine Spectator (WS): 94
"A smooth customer, with sweet oak spice, ripe cherry, plum and black tea aromas and flavors. The stiff structure shows up on the finish, but this has depth and layers, lingering for a long time on the finish. "
