The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is lush, sweet and inviting. Today the 2007 doesn’t quite have the sheer visceral thrill and excitement of the 2006, but it more than makes up for that with its early approachability. Dark red berries, spices and crushed flowers are layered into the finish. There is plenty of volume but not a lot of structure. The 2007 Brunello was made from three separate parcels with different altitudes and exposures. Malolactic fermentation was done in steel and the wine was aged in a combination of casks and neutral small French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. 94 Points - Antonio Galloni, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate #200
Good medium red. Expressive, inviting aromas of plum, tobacco, leather and smoky underbrush; very sangiovese. Silky on entry, then plush but fresh in the middle, with a perfumed quality and a coiled spring to its red fruit flavors. Finishes firmly tannic, gripping and long, with excellent lift and a noble rusticity to the red fruit and leather flavors. Shows the 2007 to its best advantage, and is built for a good 12 to 15 years of aging. 94 Points - International Wine Cellar, July/August 2012
