  • Antonio Galloni, February 2015, Score: 92

    The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is attractive, if somewhat rustic and rough around the edges. Dark red cherry, worn-in leather, smoke, tobacco and game are some of the signatures. Readers should expect a virile, gamy Brunello. The tannins remain formidable and are also likely to outlast the fruit, so the 2004 is likely to offer a relatively brief window where all the elements are in balance.

  • Stephen Tanzer, July 2009, Score: 89

    Good deep red. Musky, slightly liqueur-like aromas of redcurrant, raspberry, strawberry and dried flowers. Sweet, juicy and rather suave, with a penetrating quality and very good grip to the bitter cherry and cherry pit flavors. Finishes with subtle aromatic perfume and firm tannins that reach the front teeth.

  • Vinous, June 2009, Score: 92

    Il Marroneto's 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is a rich, enveloping wine that flows onto the palate with generous dark red fruit. This is an especially harmonious, caressing Brunello that offers exceptional balance in an approachable style. Sweet floral notes develop on the close, adding to the wine complexity and sheer appeal. The wine continued to open up nicely in the glass.

  • Ian D'Agata, May 2014, Score: 91

    Good medium-dark red. Rich aromas and flavors of ripe raspberry, bitter cherry pith and minerals. Rather large-scaled for this wine but intensely flavored and well delineated, offering an outstanding combination of ripeness and energy and neatly avoiding any sense of chunkiness. Finishes with a firm tannic spine that provides support to the lingering red cherry and berry flavors. A promising Il Marroneto that has improved greatly since its initial release, picking up flesh and sweetness. Il Marroneto is never a big ripe wine, but this vintage is one of the sweetest and fleshiest versions of this wine that I recall.

Region

Montalcino

Located southwest of Chianti, Montalcino came into its own in the late 1880s when local producer,Biondi-Santi, discovered a Sangiovese clone in his vineyard that was darker in colour than the rest. Its colour, however, was not its only attribute. It produced a wine with notable body, structure and length. He named it ‘brunello' meaning little dark one. This grape's genetic properties along with Montalcino's relatively temperate climate combine to create a wine stylistically different to that of more northerly Chianti. They are usually released approximately 5 years after the vintage following 2 to 4 years ageing in wood. The denomination of Riserva indicates a wine usually produced with more concentrated grapes than the traditional cuvéeand requires a minimum of one additional year of ageing.Today, Montalcino has become one of the most sought after appellations in the Tuscan region.
