"1995 was the first vintage where Angelo Gaja had total control over the viticulture and vinification of these Brunello di Montalcinos. This wine is spectacular, and among the finest I tasted from this vintage. The 1995 Brunello di Montalcino Sugarille is a beast! A closed, dense, tannic behemoth, it possesses huge body, exceptional concentration and power, and remarkable levels of black cherry liqueur infused with smoke, dried herbs, cedar, and licorice. The opaque garnet color is not indicative of a wine this closed and backward. Give it 5-6 years of cellaring and drink it over the next 25-30 years. This is an exceptionally impressive Brunello from Angelo Gaja. " -Rated 93, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
