Really lovely black cherry and stone fruit. Nicely balanced with good flavor depth and silky mouthfeel.

Dark cherry fruit is still intense after 8 years. Needs a few more to get more subtle if that’s what you’re into. Meanwhile it’s drinking rich and voluptuous

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

Beautiful, resolved nose of dark cherry and well-integrated oak. Lovely secondary flavors and highly aromatic. In a good place. Reminds me of Felsina Fontalloro

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

Very well made wine. Nothing over blown. Oak is in balance. Traditional Sangiovese
