2001 Baricci Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1070001 94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2001 Brunello di Montalcino shows a deep, dark ruby color in the glass. Its mature yet glorious bouquet alone is intoxicating, blending ripe strawberries with a mix of savory and sweet spices, tomato leaf, hints of air-dried meats and golden curry. This is silky in texture and elegant, ushering in cool-toned red fruits, further propelled by salty minerals and nervous acidity under an air of inner rose. There’s still a tug of residual tannins here, just enough to frame the finish perfectly, as the 2001 tapers off remarkably fresh to hints of plum and licorice. This is a testament to the traditional Baricci style and the Montosoli hill from which this wine was made. It’s stunning. (EG) Inner quote mark (3/2021)

90 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2001 Brunello di Montalcino from Nello Baricci is just a tad too ripe for my palate, as its fourteen percent alcohol shows through on the long finish as just a bit of heat, but otherwise, this is really a very classy example. The bouquet offers up a deep, ripe and complex nose of ripe cherries and plums, woodsmoke, coffee, lovely soil tones, a touch of nutskin, Tuscan herbs and just a bit of new wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and rock solid at the core, with modest tannins and really very fine length and grip on the finish. Inner quote mark (6/2011)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Brimstone notes blow off quickly to reveal smooth vanilla, coffee, chocolate, toast, cherry and eucalyptus. A wine with a long, spicy finish, firmly-built body and drying tannins. Inner quote mark (4/2006)
