2010 La Velona Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1230491 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is one of the best value wines of this celebrated vintage. Fruit is sourced from the Castelnuovo dell'Abate subzone of the appellation and you immediately notice the extra density and power of this wine (the label reads 14.5% alcohol and you feel it). That power is well checked by the general richness and pulpiness of the mouthfeel and the balanced intensity of the bouquet. Having said that, this Brunello definitely veers toward the savory side of the Sangiovese spectrum with dark cherry tones, dried meat and exotic spice. The results are masculine and muscular and that extra grit should carry the wine forward over the next ten years. Gianfranco Bomba sources fruit from various vineyards including the Podere Pietranera property located in the Abbazia di Sant'Antimo sub-zone. Together, it counts 12 hectares of vine on marine fossil and galestro-rich soils. (ML) Inner quote mark (2/2015)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark A dark, powerful wine, the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino possesses gorgeous depth and nuance. Intensely savory and mineral, the 2010 packs a serious punch. Readers will have to give the 2010 a few years to settle down, but there is plenty of intrigue. Mediterranean herbs, game, smoke, lavender and dried flowers add nuance on the finish. This is a highly distinctive wine from the southern reaches of Montalcino, with more in the way of ferrous/mineral notes than overt fruit. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2015)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Rich and supple, this red puts forth cherry, raspberry, tobacco and mineral aromas and flavors. There's a certain charm here, underscored by solid tannins. Sweet fruit returns on the aftertaste. Best from 2019 through 2035. 3,000 cases made. –BS Inner quote mark (9/2015)
