Wine Advocate 91 Points
The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a rich, forward Brunello built on an extroverted core of dark fruit. The wine impresses for its round, enveloping personality and gorgeous overall sense of harmony. Hints of smoke, leather and licorice add complexity to the engaging and creamy finish. This is one of the more approachable 2004 Riservas I tasted. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2022.-AG

Offers opulent fruit on the nose, with mushroom and toffee. Full-bodied, with loads of decadent ripe berry, coffee and dark chocolate character. Big and juicy. Best after 2012. 220 cases made.–JS
