Wine AdvocateThe outstanding 2010 Brunello di Montalcino gives you everything you want to see in a great wine, a great Tuscan wine. This monumental expression of Sangiovese delivers top-notch intensity with seamless integration of aromas. They span from dark fruit and Morello cherry to chocolate, spice, licorice, balsam herb and rosemary sprig. The energy and vitality of the vintage is locked perfectly within. This Brunello exhibits especially soft, silky tannins with long persistence and momentum. There is nothing out of place and the price tag is certainly not exaggerated for this level of excellence.
James SucklingGorgeous aromas of sea salt, savory, smoked meats and dried fruits follow through to a full body with fine tannins and a long, intense finish. So beautiful and enticing. Goes on for minutes. Excellent quality for the standard bottling of this winery. Better in 2016.
Wine SpectatorA whiff of spice gives way to ripe cherry, raspberry and earth flavors in this lively, supple red. This is all about texture and elegance, with the fine balance making this feel effortless. The lingering aftertaste evokes tobacco, leather and spice notes. Best from 2018 through 2033. 6,583 cases made.
