James SucklingThe aromas of iron, burnt orange, and dried cherry are compelling. Mineral undertones as well. Meat, earth. This is full body, firm and lightly toasty. Structured. This needs at least three years to soften. Muscular style as always but succulent too. Best ever from here.

Wine AdvocateThe beautiful 2010 Brunello di Montalcino delivers an impressive level of balance, elegance and intensity. All those qualities work harmoniously together to form the well-toned personality of this territory-driven wine. The wine walks with light footprints and nothing about it is too powerful or overdone. In fact, Gianni Brunelli Le Chiuse di Sotto has crafted the kind of wine that caresses the palate with impressive complexity, but that also makes a good companion to a large range of oven-rosted or grilled dishes. The mouthfeel is compact and extremely focused.

Wine EnthusiastAromas suggest underbrush, crushed berry and moist soil. The palate offers wild cherry, licorice, tobacco, rosemary and sage alongside firm tannins. It still needs to open up and fully develop. Drink 2018-2028.
