2010 Il Valentiano "Campo di Marzo" Brunello di Montalcino

92 points James Suckling: "A rich and earthy red with orange peel and plum character. Full body and tangy with lots of jammy flavors. It becomes bright and fresh with air. Thoroughly delicious. Drink or hold." (1/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Campo di Marzo opens to smoky notes of ash and pencil shaving that segue slowly to dried cherry, savory spice and used leather.

97 points Wine Spectator: "*Highly Recommended* There are plenty of bass notes here, augmented by plum, licorice, spice and chocolate hints, along with cherry and floral flavors. The solid structure suggests this will age at a glacial pace, though the long aftertaste indicates a lot of future pleasure. Shows excellent balance and harmony overall. Best from 2019 through 2036." (6/2016) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Showing a dark garnet color and thick consistency, the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a very beautiful expression of Sangiovese executed in a generous and opulent style. The wine reveals deep l ...Read More »

2010 Agostina Pieri Brunello di Montalcino

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is an irresistible wine that demonstrates just how far the Agostina Pieri brand has evolved over the past decade. This may be the best Brunello ever released by this boutique estate in the Piancornello subzone of the appellation. Most notable and compelling is the seamless integration of flavor and texture that is not easily achieved with the finicky Sangiovese grape. The wine opens to a dark ruby hue with aromas of dried cherry, cassis, blue flower, ginger and balsam herb. You get lingering mineral tones that create a sen ...Read More »

1997 Poggio Antico Brunello di Montalcino

94 points James Suckling: "The 1997 Altero was very intense with ripe fruits, almost dried and pruney. It was full and round and soft with dried berry and spice. Balsamic and intense aftertaste. Drink now." (6/2016) 93 points Wine Spectator: "*Top 100 Wines of 2002* Pretty aromas of plums, berries and cherries follow through to a full-bodied palate, with a lovely balance of ripe fruit and refined tannins. Long and caressing finish. (JS)" (6/2002) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark ruby with a garnet core. Intriguing nose combines clove, juniper berry, white pepper and iris, plus a pronounced scent of cedar. Densely textured but crisp, with ...Read More »

2010 Silvio Nardi "Manachiara" Brunello di Montalcino (Previously $100)

98 points James Suckling: "Very complex aromas of tanned leather, dried fruits and flowers. So beautiful to smell. This is so full and velvety-textured with amazing richness and complexity. Such a gorgeous, exciting wine. Long and caressing. Turns savory and succulent. Fantastic. Greatest wine ever from here. Drink or hold." (1/2015) 94 points Wine Spectator: "This red exhibits harmony from the outset, with sweet plum and cherry jam flavors, accented by licorice and leather aromas. The focus intensifies as this evolves on the palate, leaving a firm, tightly wound finish. Hangs together nicely, so give this so ...Read More »

2010 San Filippo "Le Lucere" Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

99 points James Suckling: "Aromas of crushed raspberries, cherries and blackberries expand your senses. There are also freshly sliced mushroom,s wet earth and bark. It's full-bodied with an incredible depth of fruit and a savory, salty, almost grilled meat character. Layers and layers of fruit and tannins. A truly great wine." (3/2015) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Aged two years in oak, the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Le Lucére is expressive and deep with thick lines and a profound sense of extraction. This is a lovely wine that occupies a special place on the opulent side of the Brunello spectrum. Of course, t ...Read More »

1997 Castello Banfi "Poggio all'Oro" Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

96 points Wine Spectator: "Dark ruby red. Aromas of blackberry, dried flowers and cherry. Very intense and concentrated nose. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long flavorful finish. Lots of light vanilla and crushed dark fruits on the finish. Solid now, but better with age. (Web-2007)" 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Rock solid and compact. This wine is true-blue Brunello, meant to be cellared for 10 or more years. Flavors of plum, cherry and currant are pure, and there’s far more fruit here than wood. But the tannins are like nails and they get harder and harder with each sip. Yes, it’s a top-flight Brunel ...Read More »

2010 Castiglion del Bosco Brunello di Montalcino (1.5L)

96 points James Suckling: "Fabulous aromas of oranges, peaches and mahogany follow through to a full body with rich, chewy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. This is dense, tight, powerful, compressed and incredibly structured. Needs four to five years of bottle age to come out of its dormancy." (1/2015) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a ripe and fruit-forward expression that bursts with energy and red fruit intensity even at this young stage in the wine's life. Thick layers of cherry, blackberry, cassis, vanilla and cinnamon give the wine a bold, opulent personality. The tann ...Read More »

2008 Il Valentiano Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva feels like a wine made from a whole other producer and a different environment when compared to the estate’s 2009 Brunello Campo Marzo. While that wine is thin and fraught, this Riserva on the other hand, is bountiful and generous especially where the use of oak is concerned. Some 48 months in barrel adds cinnamon and vanilla over dark cherry and blackberry. It is meant for near-term consumption. Drink: 2014-2021. (ML)" (2/2014) Jancis Robinson: "Deep ruby with orange tinges. Balsamic fruit with a hint of incense on the nose, Concentr ...Read More »

1999 Uccelliera Brunello di Montalcino

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Ruby-red. Wild, Cote-Rotie-like aromas of raspberry, leather, bloody steak and magnolia. Lush, sweet, fat and seamless; rustic in a positive way. Notes of leather, tobacco, meat, coffee and earth. Finishes with broad, fine, sweet tannins. A distinctly sauvage, very dense wine that should offer early accessibility. (ST)" (9/2004) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Impressive aromas of ripe fruit and fresh mushrooms, with hints of tobacco. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a generous berry, spice and tar aftertaste. I like this stylish red. Drink now."
