A red with dried berry and cherry character. Lots of spices from nutmeg to cloves. Full body, velvety tannins and a savory finish. Drink or hold.
Dark red cherry, plum, spice and cedar notes flesh out in Sassodisole's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino. Pliant and expressive through to the finish, the 2010 offers plenty of appeal in an up-front, juicy style. Pine, mint, savory herbs, smoke and licorice add nuance on the dark, insistent finish as this brooding Brunello continues to open up in the glass. This is a strong showing from Sassodisole. (AG)
The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino sees a classic winemaking formula of 12 months in stainless steel, 36 months in large Slavonian oak casks and 12 months in bottle. It is that steady care, executed over five years, that gives this wine its smooth and tempered personality. The Brunello shows power and muscle with red fruit aromas, spice, dark smoke and cured meat. This is a wine with wide shoulders and a large frame. It offers moderate complexity but presents a united aromatic front. Drink this Brunello after 2017. (ML)
This full-bodied red features aromas of underbrush, tilled soil, dark berry, new leather and a whiff of game. The concentrated palate offers ripe black cherry, licorice, mocha and a note of pipe tobacco alongside firm, velvety tannins. It's already ripe and accessible but will also age well for the next decade at least. Drink 2016– 2025. (KO)
