"The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is a pretty, mid-weight offering graced with crushed flowers, dried cherries, spices and sweet herbs. Menthol, licorice and roses add complexity on the high-toned, feminine finish. Already pretty approachable, the estate’s 2006 Brunello looks to be an excellent choice for near and mid-term drinking. The Brunello spent 36 months in large Slavonian and French oak casks. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024.

These are two beautiful 2006 Brunelli from Caparzo. Both wines are distinguished for their elegance, textural beauty and overall finesse." (WA)

"($45) Bright medium red. Aromatic nose melds cherry, raspberry, wild herbs and menthol. A floral, silky, nicely perfumed midweight, with a juicy delicacy to its fruit and floral flavors. With its rather easygoing structure, this will give early pleasure. Turned a bit dry with time in the glass." (IWC)

"Love the flowers, ripe berries and minerals on the nose here. Light dried fruits too. Dried porcini! Full bodied, round and fruity, with a decadent and fruity finish. Try in 2013." (JS)
