Wine EnthusiastGiuseppe Gorelli's Brunello tastes a bit ripe in 2004 with layers of dried figs, prunes, apricots and candied fruit. In the mouth, the wine is angular and raw in places because of the mature nature of its tannins, but it does close with surprisingly fresh notes of wild berry and underbrush that balance it out. Drink now.

Wine AdvocateThe 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is a soft, delicate wine with pretty notes of plums, leather, spices and minerals. This wine was gorgeous when I first tasted it from barrel a few years ago, but the freshness and clarity this wine had in its youth has faded. Several bottles have all been soft and ethereal, with elements of dilution. The 2004 simply lacks the sheer stuffing of the finest vintages here. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2016.

Wine SpectatorShows sweet cherries and berries on the nose, with a lemony undertone. Medium-bodied, with good fruit and a fresh, clean finish. This is a little light for the vintage. Drink now.
