    The wines of Baccinetti are rich, ripe, dense and full, but retain their balance and elegance. The 2010 Brunello is a stellar example of the vintage, and an exceptional bargain at this price. The palate has pretty cherry fruit with a nice earthy, spicy quality, great structure and good balance of acidity and tannins.

    Just delicious! The 2010 La Saporoia exhibits that unbeatable 2010 vintage style, showing fairly intense dark fruit, luscious black cherry and smooth hints of leather with plenty of spiciness woven throughout. Long in finish as you would expect from 2010 and though this is wonderful to drink now, it has the structure to improve for 10 or so years easily. From a wonderful small producer south of the town of Montalcino between Castelnuovo dell'Abate and Saint Angelo in Colle, quite near Sesta di Sopra on the land once tended by the monks of the Sant'Antimo Abbey.
    Top Value!

    When I first smelled this wine I couldn’t believe it, it was like someone had taken out the spice drawer, turned it on its end and poured everything into my glass of wine. It was so aromatic it was hard to concentrate. Incredible layers of wild cherry, marzipan, dried flowers, a kitchen sink of Middle Eastern spice, star jasmine…it’s like the whole alphabet was there. Once on the palate, the wine flows luxuriously across it, displaying layers of wild cherry with hints of leather that gradually focus the wine as it stretches out into a long finish. Fine tannins gradually build showing the power and structure that lie just under the surface of this delectable wine. Capable of aging 15-20 years but delicious now. 2nd Tasting notes from February 19, 2016: While the kaleidoscope of flavors is still in the nose the wines interior structure is tighter, more focused and more linear, it is still wildly good to drink (I'd decant for 1-2 hours) it just shows the aging potential for this wine. Really extraordinary!
    Drink from 2016 to 2030
