  1. 95 Wine Spectator Notes

    Though rich and round, the cherry, black currant and violet flavors in this Brunello are pure and focused. This is beautifully textured, displaying bright acidity and refined tannins that drive the long mineral aftertaste. Best from 2012 through 2025. 2,000 cases imported. Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator

  2. 95+ Wine Advocate Notes

    The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino flows with gorgeous layers of dark red fruit. This is one of the more muscular, virile wines of the vintage. Slow to reveal its character, the Valdicava Brunello will require significant patience, but I have seen the wine blossom beautifully, even in the smallest of vintages. A blast of iron, smoke, tar, licorice and new leather inform the deep, intense finish. This is a hugely promising, brilliant Brunello from proprietor Vincenzo Abbruzzese, but it needs to be buried in the cellar for at least a few years. Readers who cant wait should open the wine a few hours in advance, which will allow the fruit to emerge. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2031. -Antonio Galloni, Wine Spectator
