Fossacolle Brunello di Montalc 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Advocate Review Rated 92 The estate's 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is a big wine bursting with dark fruit. It remains a powerful, dense Brunello dominated by primary aromas and flavors, although occasionally notes of licorice, leather and spices emerge, hinting at the wine's complexity. The oak is beautifully balanced, and all the wine needs is another year or two in bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020. Wine Tasting Notes Bright, dark red. Spicy red berries, cherry and a flinty nuance on the nose. Then silky, supple and sweet with chewy black and red cherry flavors. Not especially fleshy but offers an attractive restrained sweetness and finishes with rather soft tannins and good length. Perfect for sirloin steak, grilled, roasted or stewed red meats.

Big, earthy and strong. Shows potential and will definitely benefit from some aging

Just an excellent brunello from Fossacolle. This is showing just the slightest amount of bricking on the edges. Nice rustic, earthy nose with a good bit dried red and black fruit. On tasting, black plum, black cherry, a touch of tar, bracing acidity, totally integrated fine grained tannins, all in great balance.

Of intense ruby color, our Brunello shows on the palate alluring aromas of very ripe red berries and delicate spices, while the full body is gratifying and persistent, with outstanding minerality. Remarkable tannins, soft and creamy in texture, confer concentration and aging potential to this wine, a real “Cru” of great distinctiveness. - Winery

Sergio Marchetti's 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is a big wine that carries its weight and concentration gracefully thanks to the extra aromatic embellishments that are woven deep within its fabric. Smoke, chiseled mineral, toasted almond and espresso frame and give definition to a substantial core of dark fruit. The mouthfeel is velvety and textured, but it's also slightly thinner and shorter compared to vintages of the recent past. One year in barrique and one year in botte grande is the aging regime used. It will surely flesh out in the bottle. Drink: 2016-2024. The nose on this brooding wine offers red berry, cooking spices and Mediterranean herbs with hints of saline and truffle. The forward palate delivers stewed prunes, black cherry and black pepper accented with toasted notes and espresso alongside bracing, astringent tannins that dry out the mouth. - K.O.

The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Fossacolle is gorgeous in this vintage. Freshly cut flowers, plums, spices, licorice and mint are all woven together in this rich, generous wine. The 2007 impresses for its fabulous depth and power. Layers of dark red fruit saturate the palate on the intense finish. Everything is in the right place. The Brunello was aged one year in French oak barrels followed by a second year in cask. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. Medium red. High-pitched aromas of cherry, rose petal, sandalwood and exotic spices. Dense, ripe and primary, with lovely energy and a restrained sweetness. Very fresh, pristine 2007 Brunello, still a bit youthfully tight. The broad finish features a fine dusting of tannins and strong lingering fruit. Pretty savory tones and barbecue aromas combine to create a bold Brunello. Ripe fruit, black pepper, rum cake, black currant and blackberry preserves all appear in the background. Silky-smooth and firm, it show...
