2006 Capanna Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

SKU #1109567 96 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This riserva is simply gorgeous, with loads of fresh fruit, mineral, spice, leather, tobacco and long aging potential. The freshness and structure is definitely present, while the mouthfeel is luscious and opulent with vanilla, espresso and dried herb or menthol overtones. *Cellar Selection* Inner quote mark (5/2012)

95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Very rich on the nose with blackberries and blueberries. Full-bodied with chewy tannins. Lots of fruit and character on the finish. A well-structured Riserva. Inner quote mark (2/2012)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva bursts from the glass with dark cherries, flowers, mint and licorice. This is a full-bodied, richly textured Brunello that impresses for its balance and sense of proportion. Layers of super-ripe, dark fruit flow through to the intense finish. The 2006 Riserva is obviously young today, but it is full of promise. The wine was vinified in conical oak vats and aged in Slavonian oak for 44 months. (RP) Inner quote mark (4/2012)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright, dark red. Slightly high-toned aromas of black cherry, licorice and mint. A distinctly dark expression of Sangiovese, densely packed, sappy and backward, with excellent breadth and a suggestion of saline minerality. Finishes with serious tannins and excellent lift. Comes across as a bit less sweet than the 2007 classico, but also fresher and more structured. Makes that wine seem warmer, but this one is also carrying 15% alcohol. 92+ (ST) Inner quote mark (7/2012)
