2006 Il Marroneto Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1180025 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino offers up freshly cut flowers, black cherries, minerals, new leather and menthol in a polished, totally vibrant style that is highly appealing. Over time, the wine’s inner sweetness emerges, hinting at what is in store over the coming years. Still quite firm, the estate’s Brunello will need a few years in the cellar. It will appeal most to readers who like firm, ageworthy wines. This finish impresses for its focus and overall purity. Smoke, underbrush, tar and a host of other aromas and flavors add complexity on the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026. (AG) Inner quote mark (5/2011)

91 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Plenty of dried flowers, with plums and ripe strawberries on the nose. Full body, with chewy tannins and lots of vanilla. It turns a little dry but should come out right with three to four years of bottle age. Inner quote mark (1/2011)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good full medium red. Red berries, rose petal, lavender and a whiff of gingerbread on the nose. Juicy, sweet and savory, with lovely intensity and grip. Harmonious acidity energizes the mid-palate and gives definition and cut to the wine's dark berry and spice flavors. Not a silky style but penetrating, firmly tannic, long and built to age. Broad on the back but a bit youthfully tough today and in need of at least several years of cellaring. Inner quote mark (8/2011)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This classic Brunello is slightly more closed aromatically and subdued at first, but opens to deep layers of berry fruit and exotic spice as the wine stays in the glass. Elegant flavors of almond and cassis appear as pretty accents on the long fade. Inner quote mark (4/2011)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark There's a beam of cherry in this tightly constructed red that quickly gets lost in the dusty, even astringent tannins. Fresh and elegant, just on the dry side, finishing long with mineral and tobacco. Best from 2014 through 2022. 500 cases imported. Inner quote mark (2/2013)
