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. Give it a few minutes and the wine opens nicely to show blue flower, pressed violet and dark rose. The complexity on display is a pleasant surprise especially compared to the lackluster 2009 vintage.

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.

2010 Bava Barbaresco

This small selection of Barbaresco comes from a single vineyard, according to the producer: "Ageing in wood, this wine develops harmonious sensations with floral and spicy notes and an intense colour. Solid structure leading to great elegance which is typical of Nebbiolo for Barbaresco. We wanted a soft and enveloping wine, surely complex, but also able to combine the austere tones of the great Nebbiolo with more tenuous and elegant scents."

2010 Venturini Amarone della Valpolicella Classico

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Bold and rich, this opens with aromas of baked plum, pressed blue flower, nutmeg and a confectionary note. The ample palate doles out high-toned black-skinned fruit, cocoa, cinnamon and sweet pipe tobacco supported by velvety tannins and uplifted by fresh acidity. It's opulent, but also balanced and poised. (KO)" (12/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico sees fruit harvested from limestone rich soils and southwest exposures.

2010 Fattoria dei Barbi "Vigna del Fiore" Brunello di Montalcino

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Barbi's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna del Fiore emerges from a parcel in Castelnuovo dell'Abate near Mastrojanni. Dark, powerful and intense, the Vigna del Fiore blossoms in the glass with notable intensity and breadth. Dark cherry, plum, lavender, Mediterranean herbs and smoke flow through to the textured, broad finish. Stylistically, the Vigna del Fiore is a bit richer and sweet through the mid-palate and finish than the straight Brunello bottling." (2/2015) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna del Fiore shows a saturated garnet hue and ruby highlig ...Read More »

2010 Castelgiocondo Brunello di Montalcino

97 points James Suckling: "Aromas of warm stones, dark fruits and walnuts follow to a full body, soft tannins and a savory finish. This shows ripe fruit and salty undertones that give the red a wonderful juiciness. It dense and tight now but will give so much pleasure in the future. Best ever from here. Drink or hold."

2010 Costanti Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (Pre-Arrival)

98 points Vinous: "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is fabulous. Dark cherry, lavender, mint, hard candy, and a host of balsamic-inflected notes soar from the glass as this towering, structured Rivera shows off its personality. This is one of the more tannic, backward Riserva of the vintage. As such, demands patience. Just as extraordinary as it was last year, the Riserva once again shows just how magical this vintage was for Andrea Costanti. (AG)" (2/2016) 98 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Aromas of ripe black-skinned fruit, new leather, menthol and a whisper of blue flower unfold ...Read More »
