The 2003 Brunello di Montalcino is a dense, full-bodied offering that bursts from the glass with waves of intense, ripe dark fruit. This shows outstanding concentration and length on the palate along with elegant, finessed tannins and superb overall balance considering the vintage. As is the case with so many wines, the scorching 2003 has robbed this wine of much of the complexity it offers in more normal years. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2015.

Another of the real surprises in this tasting, the 2003 Brunello di Montalcino is absolutely stellar. Inky and dense on the palate, the 2003 possesses stunning richness and intensity. Black cherry, plum, smoke, licorice and spice are all fused together. The 2003 is a decidedly dense and super-concentrated wine, yet it has aged exceptionally well while retaining quite a bit of freshness considering the scorching hot weather that year. Although the 2003 can't quite reach the level of the very best wines made here, it is in the group of vintages that lie just below. May 2016
