Brawny, big, tight. Needed air. My second time with this wine. This is a steak eaters Brunello. So much structure, it needs some beef fat to tame it's hard edges.

Not profound, but perfectly resolved. Probably not going to improve from here.

2010 - Quite a benchmark among Montalcino wines, this relatively young Brunello di Montalcino shines for elegance and balance. Outstanding. #Vinitaly

Silky tannins, violet and plum at nose, long, with great drinkability, balanced. Perfect with food - and also without it

I love the elegance and restraint this wine is showing even in 2011. Second time having it with consistent notes

Big, dense, and chewy. Young still but it's showing nicely. Needs 5-8 years at least.

Profoundly beautiful. Burgundy and Felsina fans should take notice of this extremely pretty expression of Sangiovese.
