2010 Il Marroneto Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1186028 97 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Multifaceted fragrances suggest violet, rose, red berry, baking spice, savory herb and a balsamic note. Elegant with great intensity, the radiant palate delivers juicy wild cherry, crushed berry, cinnamon and a note of star anise alongside a backbone of assertive, fine-grained tannins and bright acidity. It's a gorgeous wine with breeding and class that needs time to bloom fully. *Cellar Selection* (KO) Inner quote mark (2/2015)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Beautifully ripe and intense, the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino never feels overdone or too heavy. In fact, it treads with the lightest of footprints imparting delicate tones of rose petal, forest berry, white cherry, balsam herb and sweet almond as it flutters over the senses. The main message here is elegance and this wine is profoundly eloquent on the subject. The mouthfeel is tight silky and enduring. Delicate mineral notes give focus and definition to the finish. This is a classic Brunello from an iconic vintage. (ML) Inner quote mark (2/2017)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Dark red cherries, mint, sage, tobacco, licorice and new leather blossom in Il Marroneto's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino. Savory and lifted in the glass, the 2010 possesses stunning overall balance and tons of nuance. The tannins are firm and incisive, yet also remarkably polished. Ideally, readers should cellar the 2010 for at least a few years, but it is going to be very hard to resist the temptation of drinking the 2010 young. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2015)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Aromas of wild and medicinal herbs lead off, with cherry, spice and tobacco flavors. Fleshy and focused, with a long, flavorful aftertaste of fruit, spice and tar. Best from 2019 through 2036. (BS) Inner quote mark (6/2015)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Another rich and flavorful wine with hints of walnut, mineral, orange peel and oyster shell. Very minerally. It's medium body, with firm tannins and a fresh and clean finish. Dense and solid. Better in 2017. Inner quote mark (1/2015)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Deep ruby. Sweet, composed, rather restful on the nose but with masses happening on the palate. Very much southern Tuscan; you can really taste the heat! But it’s interesting. Some tannins in reserve. 17.5/20 points. (JR) Inner quote mark (6/2015)
