An outstanding Brunello from the great 2006 vintage! Romitorio's 2004 was one of the most highly praised Brunellos, and now comes another spectacular wine. Made by Italy's top oenologist, Carlo Ferrini, who also makes another top Brunello, Casanova di Neri. Aged for a year in barrique and for another 14 months in Slavonian oak casks. Very ripe and dense fruit that's darkly colored. Powerfully structured, with mouthcoating tannins accompanying the rich flavors. A terrific Brunello endowed with the success of the vintage.

"The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is a serious, intense Brunello. Wild cherries, herbs, tobacco, spices and worn-in leather are some of the aromas and flavors that flow from this wiry, structured wine. This shows plenty of length on the palate, although the tannins dry out a touch on the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024." 91/100 Antonio Galloni, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"A rich, generous red, this firms up on the finish, showing fine length. Sweet cherry, berry, spice and mineral notes mingle, then the layer of tannins emerges. Well-proportioned, just needs time. Best from 2013 through 2024." 91/100 Wine Spectator
