Capanna Brunello di Montalcino 2010
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
Wine AdvocateCapanna's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino shows some of the ripest fruit I have tasted in this vintage. There are aspects of the bouquet that taste downright jammy with overtones of strawberry and blackcurrant. The wine's concentration is dense, dark and brooding. The bouquet is similarly dense with fruit-forward tones that affirm the bounty of its primary aromas. The wine is also a bit raw and chewy at this young stage in its evolution.
Wine EnthusiastThis hearty red opens with aromas of menthol, spirit-soaked cherry, dried rose and a balsamic note. The robust, one-dimensional palate delivers dried red cherry, stewed fruit, powdered sage and anisette alongside bracing tannins. It's savory and muscular but the heat of evident alcohol throws it off balance.
