2010 Il Valentiano "Campo di Marzo" Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1228872 92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A rich and earthy red with orange peel and plum character. Full body and tangy with lots of jammy flavors. It becomes bright and fresh with air. Thoroughly delicious. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (1/2015)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Campo di Marzo opens to smoky notes of ash and pencil shaving that segue slowly to dried cherry, savory spice and used leather. Give it a few minutes and the wine opens nicely to show blue flower, pressed violet and dark rose. The complexity on display is a pleasant surprise especially compared to the lackluster 2009 vintage. Il Valentiano shows a silky but thin mouthfeel with a nice point of acidity on the close. This is a very good effort. (ML) Inner quote mark (2/2015)

A bit shy at first in the nose, but slowly this wine begins to release its core; it’s a gentle flow, exuding a composed center, no rush or hurry here. The nose shows hints of its western slope origins, with hints of ripeness, but this is layered between spice and earth as it delicately flows from the glass. On the palate the wine has a really savory quality: salty, iron, leather, then, slowly, the fruit escapes from its tightly wound core where hints of wild cherry, plum and cocoa powder mix with fine- grained tannin to give a really focused palate presence. The long, persistent finish with layer after layer gradually makes its presence felt with superb balance, and a growing flavor crescendo. Drink in 2-3 years but capable of aging 10-20 years.
Drink from 2015 to 2030
