A wonderful, elegant red wine from the exceptional wine producer- the late Gianni Brunelli that encompasses the natural elements of beautiful Montalcino.
The 2006 Brunello Riserva is Deep ruby red color. The intense aromas of notes of leather and cherry are prominent on the nose.
On the palate, there is a strong, complexity with considerable tannic and acidity structure. The wine has an amazing personality of its own and is a truly remarkable Brunello from a truly remarkable producer.

"The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a beautiful wine. Powerful, taut and austere, the 2006 shows all of the qualities that make traditional Brunello compelling. Black cherries, incense, tobacco and grilled herbs wrap around the intense finish ..." (Antonio Galloni)

"Good full, bright red. Nuanced, mellow aromas of red cherry, spices, flowers, red licorice and leather. Silky and salty with extract; richer and deeper than the 2007 classico but more imploded today. The wine's subtle intensity carries through to the rather powerful finish, which spreads out nicely to coat the palate with red fruits and soil notes. Showing little in the way of easy sweetness but this really shimmers on the aftertaste."
