 Vinous 95 points (Apr 2012)
The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva comes across as a bit reticent. It reveals lovely detail and nuance, but without the firmness of many other young vintages. Today the 2006 is quite accessible. I will be surprised if it doesn’t start shutting down at some point. Regardless, the 2006 appears to be built more on finesse rather than power. Freshly cut flowers, hard candy and licorice are layered into the finish.

 Wine Spectator 97 points (May 30 2012)
A mix of sweet cherry, raspberry, floral, tobacco, tea and balsamic flavors mingle in this complex, layered red. The acidity and tannins are present and well-integrated as this remains elegant and harmonious on the lingering finish. There’s a racy aspect, with a tobacco and mineral aftertaste. Best from 2016 through 2035. From Italy.—B.S.
