This wine stood out because it is the first of the 2010 vintage I’ve tried that was less satisfying. Nose has less fruit and more complex aromas and is elegant, round, and perfumed; taste is unexceptional and the wine has a poor structure with low acids and coarse tannins, although the finish is quite long. I expected more. 7000 bottles produced in old French barriques.

Аромат сдержаный, легкий тост, чуть джемовый, теплый. Вкус полный, элегантные танины, отличная кислотность. 16.5/20 (92/100)

Questionable cork. So sad. Can't rate.

Really solid Brunello. Mid-heavy weight. Little fruit, not overbearing.

For someone who doesn’t drink, my brother picks a great bottle of wine... aged cheese, 9 months, stinky aroma, Behind the back pass, Arvydas Sabonis...
