Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Madonna del Piano 2003
|Appellation||Brunello di Montalcino|
Wine AdvocateThe 2003 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Madonna del Piano is a super-ripe, opulent wine that resembles the 1997 in its generous, full-bodied personality. The tannins are surprisingly well-balanced within the context of this challenging vintage. The 2003 should drink well relatively early for this Riserva. All things considered, this is a superb effort. Production was down sharply in 2003. The estate bottled just 13,000 bottles of this wine compared to the typical 23,000 bottles. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2023. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2021.
Wine SpectatorOffers ripe fruit, verging on raisin, with a hint of toasty oak. Medium- to full-bodied, with chewy tannins, but slightly hollow center palate.
