94 points , Antonio Galloni - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is a powerful, muscular wine endowed with plenty of dark fruit, minerals, spices and French oak. The balance here is exceptional, as everything is in the right place. Firm yet silky tannins frame the finish with a classy elegance that is tough to find in Montalcino. Suggestions of smoke, earthiness, tar and leather linger on the long, powerful close. Ideally this Brunello needs a few years of bottle age for all of the elements to meld together, but it is already clearly a very special wine. Pian dell’Orino's 2004 Brunello saw an incredible seven weeks of fermentation on the skins, followed by a whopping 40 months in oak, equal parts cask and medium-size barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024."
