The purest and most profound expression of Sangiovese on the market today, the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Madonna delle Grazie is a monumental achievement. It represents the pinnacle of varietal perfection from one of the best vintages on record in Montalcino. The wine opens to a beautifully saturated ruby color with vibrant crimson highlights. It shows an enormous sense of inner energy and vitality characteristic only of the best quality grapes. It continues to deliver crisp tones of small forest berry, pressed violets, wet earth, white truffle, licorice, balsam herb and all the other lovely aromas that are so distinctive in wines from this stunning part of Tuscany. The tannins are firm and linear, adding a great sense of support at the back and lingering persistency. The wine is profoundly beautiful today and shows all the criteria necessary for 20 years or more of cellar aging. Brunello Madonna Delle Grazie represents the enormous promise of Montalcino. (ML)
Beautiful aromas of violet, rose, pressed powder, perfumed berry and refreshing mint mingle in the glass. The focused palate boasts power and finesse, and delivers a great depth of flavors including ripe black cherry, licorice, tobacco and mineral. It's still young, with youthfully austere tannins and bright acidity, but this has the fruit richness and structure for lengthy aging. Hold for complexity; drink 2020-2040. (KO)
Il Marroneto’s 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Madonna delle Grazie is deep, dark and savory. An exotic melange of herbs, dried flowers and minerals wrap around the intense, powerful fruit. There is a lot going on in the glass as the wine continues to open up. If there is one word that comes to mind, it is this: wild. What a wine! (AG)
Bright and pure, offering cherry, raspberry, spice and underbrush flavors. Features ample tannins, ripe and mouthcoating, but the beam of acidity drives the fruit, mineral and spice flavors to a lingering conclusion. Combines power and finesse. (BS)
Fabulous aromas of dried orange peel, smoke, cherry, and hints of cream. It's full body, with soft and silky tannins and a long and intense finish. Long and very pretty. Very balanced. Drink or hold.
Deep ruby with orange tinges. Very closed and compact balsamic nose but the depth is enormous. Beautiful build-up of complex flavours on the palate and loads of polished tannins on a long finish. Powerful, yet elegant. A fist in a silk glove. (7.5+/20 points) (WS)
