Argiano - Brunello di Montalcino
Source Reviewer Rating Maturity Current (Release) Cost Wine Advocate # 183 Jun 2009 Antonio Galloni 92 Drink: 2009 - 2019 $40-$70 (64) The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is the first Brunello oenologist Hans Vinding-Diers made from start to finish at Argiano, and it represents a significant stylistic shift in direction. Among the changes Vinding-Diers instituted are lower temperatures in fermentation, which have given his wines gorgeous, detailed aromatics as well as notable textural elegance. The medium-bodied 2004 Brunello di Montalcino possesses perfumed layers of sweet ripe fruit that flow gracefully onto the palate, where sweet notes of tobacco, leather and spices come to life, adding further complexity. Finessed tannins round out this beautiful Brunello that is more about elegance rather than sheer power alone. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019.

Much better after gentle handling and decanting.
Altesino - Brunello di Montalcino
Very smooth and pleasant. Ready now. Not as big as 2004.
