The color is ruby red with reflexes verging on garnet. The perfume is intense, fine and elegant, with notes of cherries preserved in alcohol, enriched with spices redolent of cinnamon and cloves. On the palate it explodes in all its fineness and elegance thanks to the dense and silky tannins. Excellent body that renders the flavor harmonious and persistent. Excellent nose-mouth correspondence.

Wine SpectatorDisplays ripe berry and orange peel character, with hints of other citrus fruits. Full-bodied, with soft tannins and a beautiful underlying acidity. Long, flavorful and dense in structure. Best wine ever from this producer. Best after 2011.

James Suckling, 2009

Wine AdvocateThe 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Le Lucere is an intense, full-bodied wine packed with ripe, dark fruit. There is plenty of stuffing and depth, but slight elements of greenness detract from what would otherwise be a very fine Brunello. Le Lucere is made from the property's oldest Sangiovese plants and aged in a combination of cask and smaller French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019.

Antonio Galloni, June 2009
