2010 Le Ragnaie Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1216361 98 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Crazy nose with chocolate, smoke, grilled meat, ripe fruits and walnuts. The palate is super and goes on for minutes with plum, berry, spice, chocolate and nuts. Full body, velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Amazing quality. Goes on for minutes. Made from biodynamically grown grapes. Inner quote mark (1/2015)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is gorgeous. A super-classic profile of sweet red cherries, smoke, tobacco, cedar and wild herbs lift from the glass in a perfumed, silky Brunello that captures the essence of Sangiovese in this cool, late-ripening vintage. The 2010 is delicious today, but it can also be cellared for another 15-20 years. Le Ragnaie's 2010 will appeal to readers with an appreciation for Red Burgundy or Nebbiolo. The 2010 is a blend of fruit from three sources. About 50% of the fruit came from the Ragnaie property, while the rest of the fruit was sourced from vineyards in Castelnuovo dell'Abate, a combination that yields a wonderfully complete Brunello full of intrigue.

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino shows easy lines with delicate nuances of red berry, bramble, rose petal, dusty earth, crushed mineral, licorice and grilled herb. No one element outweighs the others. The wine presents a delicate patchwork of Sangiovese nuances but does so in the most elegant and understated matter. Feminine in personality, the wine glides smoothly over the palate with gentle, polished tannins. This wine should show well in a few more years. (ML) Inner quote mark (1/2015)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Aromas of wild olive, juniper, rosemary and eucalyptus meet plum and licorice flavors. This is tannic, but shows sweet fruit for balance in the end. Slightly more rustic than its peers for now. (BS) Inner quote mark (6/2015)

I've struggled to write this review, every time I start I get a bit choked up I love this wine so much. The nose is a wild array of spice, earth, fruit and umami intrigue. The aromatics seem to gently reach from the glass and embrace you, caress you, beckon you. On the palate the wine is extremely supple, superbly balanced and just enchanting. The aromatic complexity glides right into flavors that tantalize your palate, so easy to drink yet still being reticent, only letting you see a piece at a time and then blossoming in the finish. Long, long finish, waves of flavored complexity and textural remembrance. I love this wine.
Drink from 2015 to 2030
