The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Sugarille is darker and richer than the Rennina. Black cherries plums tar licorice minerals and leather all come together in this brooding Brunello. The fruit remains intense and full-bodied all the way through to the powerful and deeply satisfying close. Despite the wine?s heft all of the components are woven together with remarkable harmony. This is a wonderful effort from Angelo Gaja. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2026. Angelo Gaja?s wines from Montalcino seem to get far less attention than his wines from Piedmont and Maremma but they can equally compelling. Gaja did not produce his Brunellos in 2002 or 2003 which demonstrates his commitment to putting only the finest juice in the bottle. Importer: Terlato Wines International Lake Bluff IL; tel.

Wine Spectator: 95 Points

Shows aromas of citrus fruit with raspberry and blackberry. Full-bodied with a solid core of fruit and silky tannins. Very well-structured with a hint of new wood on the finish. Long and balanced. Still needs time. The best wine ever from this estate. Best after 2011. 1800 cases made 400 cases imported.
