Wine SpectatorVery ripe plum and strawberry aromas follow through to a full body, with soft and silky tannins and a long finish. Sweet juicy fruit on the finish. Best after 2010.

Wine AdvocateThe 2004 Brunello di Montalcino requires a considerable amount of time for its core of super-ripe fruit to emerge from under a wall of imposing tannins. This medium to full-bodied offering shows notable length on the palate. Suggestions of smoke, licorice, and minerals and leather linger on the potent close. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2024.

Wine EnthusiastLe Chiuse surprised us this year because this generally vibrant and lively Brunello seemed tired. With aromas of old leather, white mushroom, cedar, prunes and dried currants, it drinks well now but the jury is out on how long this wine can age. We're betting not more than two or three years.
