Tasting Report: 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riservas Show the Magic

February 2nd, 2012

I view the current release of 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riservas as yet another chance to buy and drink more extraordinary Brunellos from an extraordinary vintage. For the most part, I am not sure that the riservas are all that better than the regular bottlings of 2006 Brunellos, even though they were released a year later in bottle and they are supposed to be a better selection of Sangiovese. They are usually more expensive.

So far, I have tasted about 95 Brunello di Montalcino Riservas in blind tastings in Tuscany, and almost all of them were outstanding quality. Just over a dozen were superb quality; I scored them all 95 points or more.
