Vintage 2010 / smell seems rather old... rondeur, high acidity, earthy taste

Takes its name from the free-spirited gentleman named Bruscone who lived in the woods of the Barbi Estate.
Brilliant Ruby with aromas of wild berry fruits and sweet herb notes. On the palate cherry, plum and dried fruits with tobacco and cola notes, well balanced on firm tannins tightly wound, oak notes; decant. Lingering finish ending with mineral and earthy notes. Let this age a few more years.

Ripe and over worked. To me lacked the soul and character that makes Brunello so great, little varietal character or sense of place

Nice example. Big acid and tons of red plum fruit. Elegant and nice. Drank too early!

Closed for business, elegant and restrained, reticent even this is like Burgundy meets Brunello. Still great, the potential is there for even more greatness.

Deceptively elegant for its age, round and graceful, with some heft at the same time, smooth as silk on the finish...lovely

2010 Аромат не очень плотный, сухие ягоды, замша, минеральность. Вкус умеренно полный, горькие ягоды, рябина, черемуха. 15.5/20 (88/100)

Recommend pairing with our cow tongue and truffles. Bright, acidic body with candied red berries. Likened to Banfi's Brunellos. Serralunga is gorgeous.
