    The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino offers a classic interpretation of Sangiovese. The wine displays a dark crimson color with subtle ruby highlights. Dried berry, tobacco, pressed flower and pencil shavings are some of the principal components of the bouquet. You feel a pinch of tannic firmness and fresh acidity on the close. Villa le Prata makes 12,500 of this attractive base Brunello.

    I love the balance and fruit to this. The medium to full palate and dried-fruit and honey character follow through to a fine tannin backbone and freshness on the finish. This Brunello producer is on a roll. Drink or hold

    The Villa le Prata 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is a smooth and steady red wine that emits clean pulses of dried cherry, wild berry,dark spice and savory tobacco. The wine does a good job of underlining those aromas that are so trou to Sangiovese. That sense of purity and generosity continues to the palate where the wine shows silky tannins and balanced acidity.

    The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino shows smooth lines and a curvaceous figure. Soft aromas of cherry, Spanish cedar, licorice, dried rosemary and roasted almond rise from the bouquet. I tried this wine during two phases, once shortly after the bottle was opened and second time 24 hours later. The evolution and softening of the wine was remarkable and is very encouraging in terms of its potential longevity. Yet, you never lose sight of that characteristic Sangiovese tartness and freshness. Drink this elegant Brunello after 2017.

    Incredible aromatics here with smoked meat, toffee, light prune, dried cherry and dried flower. Full body, soft, velvety tannins and a long, sexy finish. Wonderful depth and intensity. Big wine from a little producer. Try in 2017.

    Villa Le Prata's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is laced with deep, musky scents, sweet red cherries, licorice, tobacco, kirsch and autumn leaves. Layered and resonant on the palate, the 2010 offers plenty of intrigue. This isn't the most refined or polished wine of the year, but there is something compelling in the wine's small imperfections. The slightly forward aromatics suggest the 2010 may not be especially ageworthy, yet there is quite a bit of density, tannin and overall depth that will help the wine keep for at least a decade, perhaps longer.

    Mahogany garnet hue. Slightly candied red cherry aromas that are big and luscious. This is a broad- shouldered red, with lots of pure fruit. A forward style of Brunello that will have many fans.

    This wine opens with aromas of woodland berries, forest floor and spice with hints of menthol. The ripe, low-acid palate delivers fleshy black cherry accented with thyme, sage and a hint of licorice alongside tight tannins.

    A full, rich Brunello with dried-strawberry, plum and lemon-rind character. Velvety and juicy. Drink now.

    Elegantly wrought, offering strawberry, cherry, anice and tobacco flavors. The firm, slightly dry tannins cleanse the palate. Ideal with tomato or meat souces. Drink now through 2023.

    Broad and rangy, with cherry, licorice, leather and spice aromas and flavors. Shows grip and lively acidity, picking up balsamic accents as the long finish unfolds. A powerful style. Best from 2016 through 2029.

    Lead pencil and mineral dryness upfront followed by dark fruit, blackberry and rum cake. The wine presents a soft round mouthfeel, with ample structure and length. Lingering barbecue and ripe fruit mark the close.

    The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is an attractive, juicy wine laced with sweet red berries, flowers, spices and licorice, all wrapped in a soft approachable style that is quite appealing. This is an especially fleshy, radiant Brunello from Villa Le Prata. The 2007 should drink well upon release and for at least another decade beyond. The 2007 was made from prcels in Tavernelle and Castelnuovo dell'Abate, and spent  total of four years in barrel, most of it in cask.

    Full of floral, raspberry, cherry and tobacco aromas and flavors, this red also shows savory and mineral elements. Sinewy and taut, offering a silky texture and firm tannins. This shows fine length, with a sweetness that lingers. Best from 2013 through 2025.

    A soft and silky red with lots of chocolate, light coffee, dried fruit and plum character. Mushrooms,too. Full-bodied yet linear and racy. Very fine texture. Classy finish giving it drinkability with such fine tannins. Drink now or hold.

    The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Massimo is a tight and polished red wine that offers both power and enduring sense of length. The wine opens to bright fruit tones with dark cherry and dried blueberry followed by spice, tilled earth and leather. Those savory aromas at the back help to give support and density. Villa le Prata has created a Sangiovese with impressive textural fiber that should help carry it forward over the next decade.

    Licorice, leather, sweet cherry and plum flavors inform this effusive red. Open at first, with refined yet tightfisted tannins emerging on the finish. Shows fine length and potential. Best from 2015 through 2027.
