Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

The 2005 Terre Nere Brunello Di Montalcino is a medium bodied wine, with intense aromas of integrated cherry, thyme and delicate sandalwood. Tannins are refined to tannic (decant from 15 min to 1 hour and watch it open up) and the finish is long and silky. Brunello's are meant to be aged, though ready to drink now, sample for the next 10 or so years. My impression: BEAUTIFUL to DIVINE, 91.5 pts - would be a recommended buy (especially for this price - inexpensive for Brunello's) if I managed to review it when it got released Mar19/11. Tasted Nov/11.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
