The aromas to this Brunello riserva are stunning with subtle forest fruits, orange peel and mushrooms. Full body, very fine tannins and a long and persistent finish. The flavors are so complex with earth and dark fruits. Very fine and dusty tannins. Drink or hold.

A dense, powerful version, packed with cherry, plum, herb, earth and underbrush flavors. Vibrant, showing solid grip,

this ends with echoes of fruit, earth and tobacco. Best from 2019 through 2032.

Rich aromas of cherry drops, ripe yellow apple, dried fruits, acacia honey and wild raspberry over a veil of brown spice botrytis. Although orange, apricot and chocolate flavors saturate the palate, with subtle minerality extending to the finish, this very young wine currently tastes like grape juice. Refreshing, but at present simpler--and showing less definition--than the previous wines, it nonetheless has potential for further development.

A rich mix of crushed red fruit and ripe melon fills this luscious and rich dessert-style white. Deeply colored, this delivers plenty of plushness to the butterscotch and honey cream flavors, lingering with some sage notes on the finish. Drink now through 2045. 75 cases made.

The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna Paganelli is a huge wine bursting with fruit. Powerful tannins provide the backdrop as the 2007 shows off its dazzling power and density. Rarely have sensuality and structure been so evident in a young Brunello. The 2007 is going to require considerable patience but is a stunning wine. The long, explosive finish is utterly captivating. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2047.

A huge, dramatic wine, the 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva literally explodes from the glass. This is a decidedly exuberant, flashy wine loaded with dark fruit. Tobacco, smoke, tar and licorice all come alive in this big, broad-shouldered Riserva. Here, too, the wine's balance is impeccable. Drinking window: 2017 - 2047

Vigna Paganelli shows amazing results with a bright fruit quality that translates into black cherry and blackberry. At the back are sophisticated tones of leather, tobacco and light touches of spice that give the wine depth and elegance. The most interesting aspect, however, is the mouthfeel that shows firm but beautifully ripe tannins that will help the wine age 10 years or more.

Bright ruby-red. Aromas of cassis, dark plum, smoky underbrush, spicecake and tobacco, plus a strong component of sweet, nutty oak. Lush, full and sweet, with black fruit, vanilla and licorice flavors dominating. The long finish features big, broad, mouthdusting tannins that coat the front teeth. Given the nature of 2007, this big wine probably won't be as long-lived as some other recent vintages for this estate, whose wines are known for their longevity. But it offers plenty of early appeal for a Riserva and should evolve nicely for another 15 years.
