2010 Castello di Romitorio "Filo di Seta" Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1202008 98 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark The purity of fruit and saline undertones with hints of gravel and stones are both impressive on the nose. This turns to violets and roses. It's full body with ultra-fine tannins and a cool, sleek texture and style. It builds on the palate. So much here. Mind-bending. Better in 2018 but already exquisite. Inner quote mark (3/2015)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Depicting Capri's Grotta Azzurra on the label, the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Filo di Seta is an oak-driven expression with elaborate tones of cinnamon, vanilla and roasted coffee bean that wrap thickly around fruity tones of blackberry and blackcurrant. The wine is soft and yielding with a rich embroidery of soft tannins and pulpy fruit extraction. There is that characteristic touch of bright acidity you get with Sangiovese. This pretty Brunello delivers all the qualities needed for medium and long-term drinking. It does need another two or three years of bottle aging however to fully flesh out. (ML) Inner quote mark (2/2015)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Filo di Seta is quite a bit darker and richer through the mid-palate than the straight Brunello. Dark red cherry, spice, plum and leather notes are all quite vibrant in the glass. Racy and voluptuous, yet with plenty of underlying structure, the Filo di Seta impresses for its overall balance. Sweet floral and spiced notes add nuance on the super-expressive finish. This bold, vibrant Brunello will offer another 10-15 years of fine drinking. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2015)

This is a powerful, brooding, concentrated wine, so dense that is doesn't seem like it is from this vintage. Yet the richness, dark, plumy fruit make this a serious wine, especially for those who don't mind a bit of vanillin toast and wood tannins. The wine is very powerful and will need some time to come together but there is definitely some depth worth waiting for. Best to age for a while.
