The ’04 Brunello di Montalcino is quite possibly the best ever produced by this estate. A lovely intense ruby announces clean, fragrant notes of wild cherry-led red berry fruit and flowery nuances of oleander and tea leaf. The concentrated palate shows elegant tannins and good acidity supporting the impressive extractive weight, lending grace to the progression, and the finale echoes the flowery notes on the nose. Score: 3 (Gambero Rosso Italian Wines, 2010)

Very nice, with a hint of cherry, but not worth the price. I compared it with and without using a carafe. It was smoother after the carafe, but some flavour was lost. On my third glass I accidentally added the wrong wine ($15 Iniskillin Cabernet-Merlot) to the carafe. [That is the reason for amateur reviewers - we do things the experts don't think of.] It actually tasted quite good, it smoothed out the flavour. Think of it as a home-made Super Tuscan.
