    This is ideal for those looking to pick up a well-priced, earlier drinker from the 2010 Brunello crop. Aromas of cherries, dried florals, wood spice and minerals join a fleshy palate of delicious fruit with fine tannins and excellent overall balance. Drink now or over the next few years.

    Ripe aromatics, dark fruit, wood spice, cigar box. On the palate succulent juicy fruits, ripe, fleshy tannins and good weight. Approachable and open even as a young wine. A nice option for drinking young while your other 2010 Brunelli mature.

    If old school is more your bag, look no further than this traditional but forward wine. Great notes of crushed herbs, potpourri and maraska cherries. A few years down should be well rewarded but with tannins this fine it is accessible now. Serve with a lamb sugo over some fresh pappardelle.

    Very user friendly Brunelli, Beautiful blackberry, cherry and lightly toasted oak on the nose. Full and silky, with berry and cherry flavors and soft tannins. This is the 2010 you can drink sooner then later. Stock up on the Bosco, so it will keep you hands off the long-term 2010 Brunellis.

    The values just keep coming - 2010 gave us an amazing number of exceptional and ageworthy Brunelli at prices that should make the Bordeaux producers nervous. The wonderfully powerful and complex Castiglion Del Bosco is another winner. Layers reveal themselves slowly releasing lovely bright fruit notes over a more savory and spicy core. The differing notes of dried cherries, flower petals and bright fresh berries all mingled with exotic spices absolutely sing on the palate. The 2010s show well now and this is no exception, but I'm putting some down for 10-15 years.
    Top Value! Drink from 2015 to 2035

    The nose is dense, brooding pools of plum, earth, smoke and hints of wood spice. On the palate the wine is powerful, broad, deep, a muscularly vibrant presence that brings the fruit to life. The wine finishes very long, with a great central focus with hints of wood spice in the finish.
    Drink from 2015 to 2030
