94 points "The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is a thrilling wine loaded with dark fruit, smoke, tar, incense and new leather. This textured, multi-dimensional Brunello shows off marvelous richness and dimension in its fruit. Licorice, iron and menthol add layers of complexity and nuance to the round, enveloping finish. This is a fabulous effort from La Velona. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2026. " Best 2014-2026

93 points "Smelling like coffee and toasty oak, with cherry and plum flavors, this rich red is backed by dense, yet enveloped, tannins. A powerful version, boasting loads of sweet fruit and a long, spicy aftertaste. Best from 2013 through 2025. 2,000 cases made. –BS " Best 2013-2025
