The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is one of the more accessible wines of the vintage. Dark cherries, plums, flowers, spices and tobacco emerge with gorgeous clarity and detail. The wine’s inner sweetness takes on more prominence on the mid-palate, leading to a long, polished finish. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020.
92 Points - The Wine Advocate
Smokey layers of tar and asphalt open the nose of this dark and brooding Brunello Riserva. There are some candied and dried fruit notes here but the overall bouquet is focused on complex tertiary aromas. What sets the wine apart however is its texture: firm, drying and long lasting. Drink now or up to three years from now.
