SKU #1162542 97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Candied fruit aromas with marzipan and blueberry. Spicy too. Figs and meat. Very complex. What a palate. This is so multi-layered with clove, pepper, cinnamon, berry, citrus and cedar. It's full body. Loads of tannins. Great and intriguing wine. Inner quote mark (12/2014)

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.

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.
Drink from 2017 to 2030
