By Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
2008 Le Gode Brunello di Montalcino
A Sangiovese Grosso Dry Red Table wine from
Brunello di Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy
Source: eRobertParker.com #207Jun 2013
Reviewer: Antonio Galloni
Rating: 92
Maturity: Drink: 2013 - 2020
Nothing in particular stands out in Le Gode’s 2008 Brunello di Montalcino. Instead, this is a wine of total finesse and elegance. Ripe, silky tannins support a core of expressive fruit as the 2008 opens up in the glass. New leather, tobacco and cloves add complexity on a round, supple finish. The 2008 isn’t super complex or structured but it is drop-dead gorgeous, even today. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020. Importer: Artisan Wine, Norwalk, CT; tel. (203) 866-4552

Beautifully sweet cherry and bright forest fruit provide nice contrast against savory notes of spice and tobacco. This Brunello is balanced and bright, with firmly structured tannins and a flash of acidity on the close. (5/1/2013) -91

2008 Le Gode Brunello di Montalcino
Winery: Le Gode
Style: Red Wine 
Varietal: Sangiovese
Region: Tuscany
By Ian D'Agata
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Jul/Aug 13
(14.50% Alcohol): Deep red. Candied blueberry, red cherry syrup, raspberry jam and sweet spices on the nose, plus a whiff of alcohol. Enters the mouth sweet and juicy, then turns peppery and sharp, showing brisk flavors of dark red plum, herbs and flint. Finishes with good length but also with mountingly tough tannins and an obvious astringent green streak. Very alcoholic for the year. I have found over the years that Le Gode is often a great buy in Brunello, but this time I was left a little disappointed. 87 Points
