JS100: This remains a perfect wine with such depth, intensity and incredible structure. Full body and powerful tannins. Yet, there is so much fruit and flavor. A kaleidoscope of flavors such as wet earth, blackberries, black tea, cigar box and earth. A different level. Drinkable now, but it’s one in the cellar for a long time. Why wait?
WA96: I tried this wine from two bottles and this review is based on the second sample. The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova soars high and far with abundant and beautifully intense aromas. The bouquet presents a very precise and focused nature with black fruit surrounded by pressed rose petal, dried violets and campfire ash. In the mouth, the wine is precise and focused. All these qualities help fuel a sense of length and balance.
