One of Italy’s most revered red wines and normally commands very high prices. The 2010 vintage is especially sought after. Refined style of Brunello, developing well and now at its peak. Characteristic flavours of dried fruits and nuts, dry finish. Pair with roast lamb.
Tom Cannavan - Wine-Pages.com:
Brunello di Montalcino may not be the most famous appellation of Tuscany, but for many Italiophiles it is home to the region's best reds, made from the Sangiovese Grosso variety. What's more, 2010 is generally held as one of the best ever vintages. No producer is stated for this wine which has a balsamic and meat-stocky character, some cedar, four years in barrel plus the bottle age showing as a light tawny on the rim. On the palate the sweet fruit of cherries and a gentle meaty smokiness, soft and giving tannins and good overall balance. It's not a Brunello for the long haul I feel, but delivers good, mature character right now. 89/100
