@Bill Makens , thank you so much for sharing this awesome wine! JSuckling gave this a perfect 100, and it's only getting better. Good minerality and ripe berries.

A big BdM! Dark fruit (berry and prune). Well balanced with good structure and a lovely finish. 94 pt - purchased as much as you can at this price point.

Supple, elegant and fresh. Black cherry and cut cedar fill the nose and glass. Cola, black currant and fluid red fruits. Well balanced with a lingering aftertaste.

I have to compare it to their previous year, in 2009, where it clearly shows consistency, yet improvement in quality, balance and clarity. James Suckling has rated this one with a perfect score of 100 points. Now, I don't know if I fully feel that this deserves a perfect rating as such, but I will definitely say that he is onto something here.

The wine showed beautiful clarity and garnet color, looking deceivingly delicate in the glass. The nose was very aromatic - notes of rose petals, smoke, wet rocks, raisins/prunes, tobacco, and graphite were all present. The pallet was very concentrated, full bodied, and lean in structure, exhibiting notes of dried cranberries and blackberries, dates, bay leaf, black pepper, and cloves, surrounded by youthful gripping tannins, and an everlasting finish harboring some firm acidity.

I will say that I thought this wine is one of the best Brunello's I've had the pleasure to have, but in the end it was just another Brunello di Montalcino, which isn't a bad thing, but it didn't quite absolutely stand out to impress me where I would rate it 100 pts, but that could change in the long life this wine will live. Bravo, Tenuta Renieri.

Fantastic! Great balance of ripe fruit, savory, earthy, acidity, tannins.

Bright fruit at opening, cherry some graphite. As it decanted smoothed out with dark cherry, vanilla and tobacco notes. Really enjoyed the way this wine changed as decanted.
