Beautiful aromas of bark, berry and dark chocolate character follow through to a full body, chewy tannins and a smoky, meaty and peppery aftertaste. Drink now or hold.
The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a lush and layered expression that shows a dark and rich side of Sangiovese. Sweet fruit and Morello cherry lift first from the glass with impressive intensity. After a few brief moments, the wine begins to show delicate nuances of cinnamon, nutmeg, grilled herb, ash and smoke. Ultimately, the wine delivers more bang to the nose and follows with a tight, streamlined mouthfeel. I would suggest keeping this bottle in your cellar for three to five more years before popping the cork. Belpoggio's bottles always stand out in a crowd thanks to the elegantly embossed glass 'B' that replaces a traditional paper label. Enrico Martellozzo's estate is located in the promising Castelnuovo dell'Abate subzone of the appellation. (ML)
Aromas suggest tilled soil, leather, dark berry and a whiff of barnyard. On the palate, notes of grilled herb, clove, black pepper, licorice and a hint of game add interest to the dark berry core. Brooding tannins provide support. Drink 2017–2022.
