2006 Cerbaiona (Molinari) Brunello di Montalcino (750ml)

SKU: 905901-0519-158
"90? out of 100 - Cerbaiona's 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is one of the benchmark wines of the appellation. It is especially indicative of the traditional style of Sangiovese that has captured so many hearts, minds and palates in recent years. The wine is aged for 40 long months in large oak casks. The bouquet is light as a feather with lingering nuances of wild berry, chopped mint, dried oregano and licorice. These aromas are enormously fine tuned and detailed. Sadly, they lift too fast. Despite the inherent beauty of the wine, this classic Brunello shifts gears very quickly and shows a sudden evolution with prolonged contact with oxygen. With a few swirls of the glass, the wine saw a very rapid decline with heavier notes of dried leaf and caramel soda that cloud the purity and intensity of the bouquet. I don't believe that this wine will hold for much longer. In fact, I have had the misfortune of tasting a good number of older Brunellos from Cerbaiona that did not age as long as I had hoped." - Monica Larner, Wine Advocate
