Aniseed and oak aromas dominate for now, with red fruit lurking behind,this is a big, fleshy number with spicy-sweet berry fruit flavours widened by prominent yet finely poised tannins. A long life ahead.

The best Brunello wine tasted is, in my opinion, Carlo Molinari Brunello di Montalcino 2000.
I tasted the wine after it had been open for a couple of hours, so it probably softened with exposure to the air. Full-bodied wine, rich, with flavors of blueberry and violet, silky with a juicy and spicy finish.
Good for grilled steak.

Brunello di Montalcino 2010 DOCG
A wonderful red with lots of red fruits from strawberries to cherries. Hints of spice and mahogany.
Full-bodied wine, dense and integrated with a beautiful balance. Extraordinary wine made by a small producer.
Carlo Molinari - Le Fonti Brunello di Montalcino 2004
Solid ruby color; cherry, tea leaf and creamy, notes of cedar on the nose; dry, medium bodied, elegant with a touch of caress in the mouth; well structured with grainy tannins and a subtle bit of acidity. Still young, it needs 2-3 years of aging. (Score 91)
Carlo Molinari - Le Fonti Brunello di Montalcino 2005
A deeper shadow of ruby color compared to 2004; the nose of rose petals and dried rose with a clear and evident tone of vanilla; well-extracted and robust flavors of cooked cherry, licorice; strong tannic finish. It needs at least 3 years. (Score 90)
Carlo Molinari - Brunello di Montalcino 2000 DOCG
Tasting notes: Excellent winery of the beautiful vintage 2000, this classic Tuscan has a mahogany color with savory aromas of cranberries, mushrooms and chestnuts. This beauty is medium bodied, well balanced with a tannin tip on the palate.
In the cellar for 3-7 years or to be enjoyed tonight with the Florentine steak.
