2006 Silvio Nardi "Vigneto Manachiara" Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1114034 94 points Wine Enthusiast

 Austere and reserved with a dark side of exotic spice, anise and mature black fruit, Vigneto Manachiara is a savory, masculine and intense Brunello. In the mouth, the wine tastes dense, concentrated and opulent. This is a real crowd pleaser.  (4/2011)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Good full medium red. Aromas of plum, redcurrant, coffee, mocha and oak. Broad, silky, sweet and seamless, but today a strong spine of acidity gives it a rather backward impression. Not yet as sweet or delineated as the normale, but this wine's tight bitter cherry and redcurrant fruit and rather clenched tannic backbone suggest that it will eventually surpass the regular release.

92 points James Suckling

 Love the aromas of black truffles, with grilled meat and dark fruits. Full body, with intense chewy tannins that are ripe and mouth puckering. This needs time to soften and mellow. Outstanding. Best after 2013  (1/2012)

92 points Wine Spectator

 Packed with plum and cherry flavors, along with dense tannins, this red is a bit monolithic now, yet well-proportioned, so give it time to stretch out a little. (BS)  (7/2011)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Manachiara shows a touch more richness, density and fragrance than the normal bottling, along with a more open, warm yet understated personality. The Manachiara is another Brunello that seems best suited to near and mid-term drinking. Tobacco, underbrush and worn-in leather are some of the nuances that inform the nicely detailed finish.
