Overall, 2006 stands out in terms of quality and elegance. This is not an overblown or overpowering vintage. Instead, as a group, the wines show balanced acidity, tight tannins (that in most cases will require from 5 to 10 years of cellar aging to soften) and beautiful aromas that speak highly of Sangiovese Grosso (the clone of Sangiovese used to make Brunello). Those nuances include fresh wild berries, cassis, dark cherry, almond, moist earth, tobacco and pressed blue flowers.
94 Points Wine Enthusiast: Opulent and plush with rich blueberry flavors backed by cherry, chocolate and soft sweet exotic spice.
