*Cellar Selection* Put this beautiful Brunello in your cellar for at least 10–15 more years. Rennina opens with bold oak and cherry tones (that need more time to integrate), followed by plump, rich blackberry flavors, chocolate, leather and dark spice. It's a wine characterized by impressive density and opulence. (5/2012)

The nose is wonderful, with rose petals and dark fruits and hints of sandalwood. Full-bodied, with super silky tannins and a chewy finish. Give this until 2015 to soften and show you what it really has. (1/2012)

The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Rennina flows across the palate with layers of sensual, perfumed fruit. Soft, gracious and impeccably balanced, the 2007 Rennina impresses for its overall harmony and sense of grace. Sweet red berries, crushed flowers and spices wrap around the feminine finish. This is a very pretty not to mention hugely appealing wine from Pieve Santa Restituta. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027. (AG) (4/2012)

Moderately saturated medium red. Aromas of dark cherry, Indian spices, cocoa powder and licorice. Sweet, plush and seamless, with surprisingly open-knit flavors of cherry, plum and spices. This wonderfully lush, silky Brunello finishes smooth, sweet and very long, with noble tannins and very good lift. (ST) (7/2012)

A rich, beefy style, with sweet spices accenting cherry, leather and tobacco flavors. Dense and firm, with sweet fruit matching the tannins on the long finish. Best from 2014 through 2028. (BS) (9/2012)
