2010 Castiglion del Bosco Brunello di Montalcino

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 »

2013 La Fortuna Rosso di Montalcino Top Pick!
2013 La Fortuna Rosso di Montalcino

Rosso di Montalcino too often sits in the shadow of its much bigger brother, Brunello. But some estates put nearly the care and expense into their Rosso as their big guns, and La Fortuna is clearly an example of this sort of winemaking. Intense in terms of fruit, but showing off admirable acidity, this is spicy, full bodied, dry and rich with a softness hiding amid all that tannic structure. A wine to drink while your Brunello ages, yes, but a quality wine nonetheless. From vines 15-25 years of age, aged for one year in barrique, 6 months of this in Fren... Read More »

(12/2014) 94 points Vinous: "Sweet red cherries, flowers, mint, white pepper and tobacco grace the palate in the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino. Although the 2010 is aromatically expressive, the tannins remain quite firm and unyielding. Readers will have to give this mid-weight, classically built Brunello at least a few years in the cellar to come together. All the ele ...Read More »

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.

2012 Albatreti Rosso di Montalcino

K&L Italian Wine Buyer Greg St. Clair knew that Albatreti was a real find the moment he put his nose in a glass of the 2010 Brunello: "We’ve been traveling to Montalcino for more than 20 years and have tasted a veritable ocean of Brunello. We’d never even heard of this producer, the first vintage was the 2009, and we hadn’t seen it in the market at all. We re-tasted another bottle just to make sure we didn’t get mispoured, and the second time we had a 'Double Wow'!

2010 Banfi "Poggio alle Mura" Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

2010 La Lecciaia "Manapetra" Brunello di Montalcino

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Manapetra represents a single-vineyard selection of fruit that is deep, dark and opulent. The wine ages in barrique for eight months and is transferred to large oak casks for an additional 30 months. This expression from the beautiful 2010 vintage is tight and generous at the same time, with great intensity that gives it vertical lift and a streamlined mouthfeel that adds length. You get a noticeable taste of the oak, but it's not too heavy. In fact, this wine shows great promise for smooth integration and evolution as it ...Read More »

2010 Agostina Pieri Brunello di Montalcino Top Pick!
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 »

(12/2014) K&L Notes: #55 in James Suckling's Top 100 Italian Wines of 2015.

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."
