"The 2005 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna Manapetra offers greater volume and richness than the normal bottling, but that alone doesn't make it a better or more complex wine, especially as the French oak is a bit more in evidence. Here the aromatics are decidedly cleaner and show better focus. The Manapetra reveals gorgeous generosity in its spiced, warm fruit, and a long, round finish with better overall balance than the regular bottling. In 2005 the estate used the grapes normally destined for the Riserva Manapetra to strengthen the regular Manapetra bottling. Anticipated maturity: 20102022."
