The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is surprisingly dark and heavy in this vintage. Black fruit, leather, licorice and spices are some of the nuances that emerge from the glass. As delicious as this is, the typical Lisini pedigree and elegance doesn’t come through to the extent it usually does. Ultimately the 2006 Brunello is a rather ponderous wine from this historic property. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020.

Tasting of sweet cherry and berry fruit, this rich Brunello maintains a sense of grace. There's a supple texture up front, with grainy tannins ushering in the finish. Best from 2012 through 2023. 2,500 cases imported.–BS

Good deep red. Aromas of crushed cherry, minerals and pungent smoke. Intense red berry and spice flavors are framed by strong but integrated acidity. Not at all overly sweet but broad, rich and concentrated. Classy, floral sangiovese with superb energy and lift, and the structure to support a slow and graceful evolution in bottle.

What a dreamy nose of crushed berries and dried flowers. Perfumes too. Then changes to Indian spices and dark fruits. Full bodied, with super well integrated tannins and a classy, long finish. So well integrated. Just a joy to taste. Better in 2013.
