2006 Da Vinci Brunello Di Montalcino

Cantine Leonardo da Vinci's vineyards are located in the breathtaking Val di Cava, one of Montalcino's most beautiful areas. The wine (as with all Brunello) is made with 100% Sangiovese, and was aged for a period of three years in both small barriques and large casks.

 On the nose I get incredible aromas of cherry, chocolate, earth, fresh black raspberry, and hints of leather, cedar, and spice. The nose is incredibly aromatic and has actually filled my whole office with it's beautiful bouquet. It's a very intoxicating and complex wine on the nose and well it's fully open and in full form, the bouquet is completely hedonistic.

On the palate the wine continues to display it's stunning fruit-purity and shows complex flavors of sour cherry, coco, ripe cranberry, and a touch of earth and leather. The finish is medium in length. 92 Points
