2010 San Filippo Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1230479 97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Extremely complex aromas of mushroom, stone, chalk, dark fruit and lightly dried bark or tea. Full-bodied, with powerful, layered tannins. Muscular and intense. It needs loads of time to soften: better in 2017. Inner quote mark (1/2015)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a dense and voluptuous expression with opulent fruit tones and equally intense oak nuances. The wine ages in botte grande for 26 months and the slow oxidation has done much to increase the aromatic intensity of the wine. Bold and chewy with thick lines, this wine also shows tight wood astringency that should soften, to a good extent, with time. There are sweet tones of baking spice and sweet cherry syrup on the close. The style is appropriate for lovers of big Brunello. San Filippo makes an impressive statement in 2010. (ML) Inner quote mark (2/2015)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Combines aromas and flavors of black cherry, plum, tar, leather and spice with a lashing of tannins. Tight and monolithic now, but all the components are in the right proportions. Just needs time. (BS) Inner quote mark (6/2015)

A very intense nose that seems more like a pot roast cooking, savory, earthy, bay leaves, porcini and root vegetables. On the palate the wine’s braised meat flavors continue but are captured by the texture, this wine becomes tactile, less flavor driven yet is wildly interesting, and indescribable layers of consistency, grain, fineness and feel infuse the wine with a vibrant almost tactile flavor. The flavors are there, that same batch from the nose but hints of spiced cherry emerge in the long, vibrant albeit slightly grippy finish.
Drink from 2017 to 2030
