|Dan Trcka rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
The 2005 Corte Pavone Brunello Di Montalcino is an unfiltered, medium bodied, integrated wine. It has an appealing aromas of leather, smoky bacon, oak and cedar on the nose and raspberry and cherry on the palate. It has a nice structure, grippy tannins (decant for 1+ hours) and a long and smooth finish. Drink now or cellar for another decade. It is excellent with Italian cuisine - cured meats and risotto as well as it performs great as a standalone sipper. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 92 pts - recommended buy. Aug/12.
