WINE ENTHUSIAST (USA) 92/100



WINE SPECTATOR (USA) 90/100
Extremely attractive aromas of plum and coffee follow through to a full-bodied palate, with velvety tannins and a medium finish. Delicious already. Very close to the 1999 in quality. Always outstanding. Best from 2006 through 2009.



CLUB DEL PAPILLON (ITALIA) TOP HUNDRED WINES



NOVUS VINUM (USA) WINE OF THE WEEK 13.02.06 – 14/520
For many years, you’ve heard the saying, “To make a small fortune in the wine business, you must start with a large one.” Well, here comes a perfect example from Dick Parsons, CEO of Time Warner. After purchasing an estate in Tuscany called Tenuta Il Palazzone, Parsons began fulfilling his dream of involving himself in wine, which helped him to stay grounded in his demanding business life. Parsons has developed a special liking for Brunellos and is now producing 4,000 cases annually of this super Tuscan vino. The 2000 is still very young and is a nice keeper, but for now, you get a powerful pack of dark fruit scents such as plum, cherry and spice. Its deep ruby juices fill the mouth with balanced tannins broadcasting a plethora of flavors including cocoa and leather. You’ll want this one with a nice steak or osso bucco.
