Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Biondi Santi 2006 (95JS) (750ML)
95 WA 97 WS
"A mix of sweet cherry, raspberry, floral, tobacco, tea and balsamic flavors mingle in this complex, layered red. The acidity and tannins are present and well-integrated as this remains elegant and harmonious on the lingering finish. There’s a racy aspect, with a tobacco and mineral aftertaste. Best from 2016 through 2035...97" WS 5/12 "Comes across as a bit reticent. It reveals lovely detail and nuance, but without the firmness of many other young vintages. Today the 2006 is quite accessible. I will be surprised if it doesn’t start shutting down at some point. Regardless, the 2006 appears to be built more on finesse rather than power. Freshly cut flowers, hard candy and licorice are layered into the finish...95" WA 4/12 "Some floral and gorgeous notes on the nose, with strawberries and cherries. Full-bodied and very powerful, with chewy tannins and bright, citrusy acidity. Very long, powerful and intense. Needs time to come together with the acidity. Better after 2015...95". jamessuckling.com 02/2010 "Biondi-Santi performs exceptionally well in elegant vintages like 2006. This wine is balanced and fresh, with lingering notes of wild berry, white cherry, cola, spice and dark chocolate. ...94" WE 10/12
