    In a sea of fantastic 2010 Brunellos, the Collemattoni stands out for its power and depth of flavor. Beautiful aromas of ripe black cherry and black raspberry are well complemented by leather and spice notes. On the palate, this full-bodied red delivers plenty of texture, balanced acidity, and cedar/toasty oak notes on the long finish. There are also some gamy, spicy, and earthy characteristics to this stunning wine. This is a delicious bottling from a now famous vintage.

    WOW! As the in-store lover all of wines that are BIG and full of OAK character, I was surprised upon opening this, another selection from the already famed 2010 vintage of Brunellos. It has everything I generally look for in more New-Worldy wines: Huge, explosive fruit, prevalent tannin, and plenty of roasted spices. Add to all that the incredibly long lasting finish, and this wine clearly comes home as one of the highlights of this new crop of Italian delights.

    Collemattoni delivers a mix of black cherry, ripe raspberry and cocoa aromas and flavors, picking up spice and tobacco elements on the Very LONG finish. This is a to drink now and over the next few years, stock up with this Brunelli while you can…

    This is classic Brunello! Sensational aromas of dark berry fruits, dried florals, sandalwood and spice open up to a rich, luxurious mouthful of concentrated fruit. The acidity and tannins are in perfect balance with the fruit and although you can enjoy it today, it will only improve with a bit of age. A real sleeper pick.

    OMG! I just discovered the Best 2010 Brunello I've tasted this year! And we've been tasting A LOT since they've been rolling in over the past months. This Direct Import straight from the Winery is Super classic in style, and right upon popping the cork it's showing amazing fruit and character! Yes you can age it for 20 years, but of all the 2010's this is gorgeous out of the bottle and oh soo showy! Amazing texture, integrated oak and tannins, purity of fruit and layers and layers of delicious! Please do yourself a favor and and let this wine transport you to the Italian wine-country of Brunello!

    The nose on this wine is …. well tremendous, I know that’s not a particularly descriptive adjective but damn it is just tremendous! The nose is a bit plumy, leaning toward the salted plum, umami spectrum, however it smells rich. On the palate the flavors are so inviting, sirens beckoning you to drink more, yet there is a decadent richness to this wine, more like Elizabeth Taylor reclining on a red velvet couch wearing a Cleopatra outfit…this wine oozes. Yet this isn’t a sloppy, overripe wine it is focused, complex, powerful but it just has a bigger body type, if you like Napa over Mendocino then you’ll like this wine it just exudes decadence. The finish is full of Middle Eastern spice, roasted meats, cedar, leather, then shows a layer of earthy minerality underneath, really impressive. I’m always amazed that this wine doesn’t get higher scores.
    Drink from 2015 to 2028
