    Valdicava
    7lnl
    Bottle (12)
    "The 2001 Brunello di Montalcino was one of the most talked about wines of Montalcino when it was first released a few years ago. The black color the wine had in its youth has begun to recede, yet this remains a rich, almost Amarone-like expression of Sangiovese that achieves an incredible level of density and sheer concentration. According to Abbruzzese the early spring hail reduced yields dramatically, which accounts for the wine's super-ripe style. I am not sure if yields alone can produce a wine that is this extreme, my guess is that decisions taken in the cellar had an influence as well. Nevertheless, the simple fact remains that this wine is a freak. There is no other wine in the estate's history - before or after - that even remotely resembles the style of the 2001. This is an outstanding wine, but one that needs to be considered on its own terms." (92pts Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate In the Cellar, Jan 2009)
