| 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright, moderately saturated red. Complex nose combines red cherry, plum, underbrush and tea leaf. Then sweet, rich and creamy, with an exotic quality to the very ripe red cherry and plum flavors. Sound, harmonious acidity keeps the wine fresh. The youthful tannins build on the back end but are very polished, giving this wine a seamless quality." (7/2010)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Brunello di Montalcino flows from the glass with impressive depth and persistence in its richly-textured dark fruit. The wine possesses dazzling inner perfume that emerges over time to add further complexity. Dark raspberries, licorice and tar make an appearance on the intense finish. This is one of the more imposing 2005 Brunellos readers are likely to come across. Ideally the wine should be opened a few hours in advance to allow some small imperfections to blow off. The Brunello is made from the Cancello Rosso and Pian Bossolino vineyards". Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022. (Antonio Galloni) (4/2010)

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "What an improvement over the overripe and jammy 2003 vintage. This is a nicely ripened, garnet-colored Brunello that boasts impressive aromatic intensity. You’ll notice aromas of blackberry, spice, cherry cola and warmer tones of wet earth, leather and tobacco. The wine is thick and textured in the mouth." (12/2010)

Drinking Window: 2014-2021
