2010 Caparzo Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1216777 95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark So much dried-lemon and orange-peel character here. Wet leaf, wet earth, stone and lightly smoked meat. Full body, integrated tannins and a savory, tangy finish. Fleshy and yummy. Fabulous deal. Inner quote mark (12/2014)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright red cherries, plums, smoke, tobacco, flowers, cedar and spices are all beautifully delineated in the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino. Vibrant and lifted throughout, the 2010 captures the freshness of the vintage in spades. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2015)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Lovely fragrances of pressed powder, black berries, rose and tilled soil waft from the glass. The firm palate offers wild cherry, raspberry, cinnamon, licorice and savory herb alongside tightly knit but refined tannins. Fresh acidity balances this out but it’s still young and not fully developed. (KO) Inner quote mark (5/2015)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Cigar box and leather aromas are balanced by strawberry and cherry notes at the core. There is a vibrant, refreshing quality here, with a long, complex aftertaste. (BS) Inner quote mark (6/2015)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Caparzo's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a lush and voluptuous wine with soft cherry aromas at the front of spice, dark chocolate and toasted almond. The wine is more approachable in style with a drinking window that can offer pleasure to those too impatient to wait. The tannins are also more evolved and integrated for a more gentle approach. The finish is marked by an evident touch of vanilla from the oak. (ML) Inner quote mark (2/2015)

Opened Caparzo Brunello di Montalcino the other night. Man, they weren't kidding about the 2010 vintage. What a explosive wine right out of the bottle. Dried cherries, mocha spice and lovely herbs on the nose. This is one of the 2010s that you should enjoy now. Full body with lush dark cherry fruit and integrated tannins. Perfect for Tuscany most famous dish bistecca alla fiorentina! BUON APPETITO!

Rich, ripe, dense and full, but retains its balance and elegance. This 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 soft tannins.
