Ratings & Reviews

94 Points - James Suckling:
"Squeaky clean with beautiful blackberries, blueberries and fresh sandalwood. Full-bodied, linear and focused. Excellent freshness and focus. Long life ahead. Drink or hold."  (11 Jan, 2019)

93 Points - Wine Spectator:
"Candied plum notes, with hints of flowers and mushroom, follow through to a full-bodied palate, with very soft, juicy tannins and lightly grilled meat, berry and fresh shiitake mushroom flavors. A decadent style. Best from 2010 through 2015. 1,800 cases made." - JS (Web Only - 2009)

92+ Points - Vinous Media:
"Good deep medium red. Highly complex, slightly musky aromas of red berries, spices, minerals, incense, iron and graphite; quite Burgundian. Silky on entry, then sharply delineated and vibrant in the middle, with a sappy, rather imploded character suggesting more to come. This very young and structured wine finishes with excellent grip and slowly emerging notes of leather, chocolate, iron and underbrush. It's a shame that more 2004 Brunellos can't match this wine for clarity of flavor or back-end thrust." - Stephen Tanzer (Jul 2009)

90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"Pertimali's 2004 Brunello di Montalcino offers up floral red fruits, spices, leather and earthiness in a surprisingly medium-bodied style for this property. The wine possesses lovely length and refined, understated finish. The estate's Brunello is quite open and accessible at this stage, and also more forward in its aromas and flavors than many other wines in this vintage, which suggests it is best enjoyed on the young side. Pertimali's Brunello is one of the handful of wines that I expected more from in 2004. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2016." (29th Jun 2009)
