iondi-Santi’s 2001 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is just as terrific in bottle as it was when I tasted it from cask last year. A dark, translucent red, it reveals superb freshness in its aromatics, with notes of small red fruits, spices, flowers, mint and anise that you could get lost in. It is perhaps less rewarding on the palate today, but its class is amply evident in the purity of its fruit and silkiness of its tannins. This is a wine built for tertiary development that will occur over the following years and decades. Readers who appreciate classically built, age-worthy wines and have the time to wait will find much to admire. In the meantime, this Brunello is all about potential, and there is plenty of that here. It is a great effort.

Winespectator (93)

Pure and elegant, offering cherry, floral, cedar and sage flavors, showing some heft on the palate, with dense tannins coupled to a silky texture. Focused on the primary Sangiovese fruit, this has not developed the complex bouquet of the older vintages. Tannins still rule the finish, with cherry, tobacco and mineral elements
