The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a big, powerful wine that is going to require at least a few years to soften. Dark and brooding, the Riserva shows the more masculine side of Sangiovese. Black cherry, plum, leather, spice and tobacco all sit on firm beams of acidity and tannin. There is a sense of explosive energy to the 2010 that I find quite appealing, but readers will have to be patient in order to experience the wine at its best. (AG)
Aromas of blood oranges, blackberries, plums and mushrooms. Full body, round tannins and spices, lightly toasted oak and a cedar/berry finish. Solid Brunello.
This opens with aromas suggesting espresso, toast, oak, wild berry and exotic spice. The firm palate offers dried cherry, licorice, coffee bean and a touch of vanilla alongside assertive, close-grained tannins that grip the finish. (KO)
Soft, floral aromas of rose and peony segue to cherry, strawberry, spice and tobacco flavors. Rich and lacy in texture, with a solid grip of tannins on the back end. (BS)
Concentrated ruby with bright orange rim. Balsamic and with hints of liqueur on the nose. Sappy, sweet cherry fruit with grainy tannins. Youthful compactness and with lots of concentration. 17/20 points (WS)
