The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino from Poggio Il Castellare is a dark, inward wine imbued with dark cherries, plums, tar, smoke, licorice and new leather, all of which come together on a powerful, incisive frame. This burly, somewhat rough around the edges Brunello shows plenty of length and richness, even if the tannins might benefit from a measure of added polish. Still, I see this working well with boldly flavored dishes. Anticipated maturity: 2014–2024.

A beauty, with terrific integration of its floral, cherry and plum tart notes, all backed by a steely structure. The elements are there and the tannins will be absorbed in time. Long, spicy finish. Best from 2013 through 2026.

This is a very smooth and polished wine with good density, length and a squeaky-clean feel on the palate. This wine’s texture is fine and smooth with buoyant aromas of wild berry, forest floor and root beer that keep the intensity alive.
