Campigli Vallone 'Terre Nere' Brunello Di Montalcino 2006, Docg
This is a very mature, delicious and elegant Brunello with brick-amber colour. The nose is intriguing with roasted chestnut, dried cran-currant fruit, amaro, leather and clove. It's full bodied, smooth, quite silky and almost sweet with considerable heat, richness and length. Drink now to 2015, maybe a bit longer. Score: 92 (David Lawrason, WineAlign.com, Jan 2013)

The 2006 Terre Nere Brunello Di Montalcino is a medium bodied, integrated wine, with intense aromas of red currant, cherry, toasted oak and leather. The structure is a little off balance, tannins are refined (decant for 1 hr) and the finish is long and slightly alcoholic. It is still young, so tuck away for at least 2-3 years to allow the structure to harmonize, drink 2015-2020+. My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 90 pts - an excellent price for Brunello’s, especially ones that are not much better – recommended for the cellar. Tasted Apr/12.
