2010 Costanti Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1247983 98 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is fabulous. Dark cherry, lavender, mint, hard candy, and a host of balsamic-inflected notes soar from the glass as this towering, structured Rivera shows off its personality. This is one of the more tannic, backward Riserva of the vintage. As such, demands patience. Just as extraordinary as it was last year, the Riserva once again shows just how magical this vintage was for Andrea Costanti. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2016)

98 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Aromas of ripe black-skinned fruit, new leather, menthol and a whisper of blue flower unfold on this stunning, elegantly structured wine. The vibrant palate doles out ripe black cherry, cinnamon and star anise framed in firm, fine-grained tannins. Hold for even more complexity. Absolutely superb. *Cellar Selection* (KO) Inner quote mark (5/2016)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This is a spectacular effort. The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva shows deep, inner intensity and lovely aromatic characteristics that are very true to the mighty Sangiovese grape. You can't go wrong with a wine like this, especially if you are seeking the true flavors of Montalcino. The aromas are presented in neat and tidy fashion with wild berry, blue flower, spice and herb that converge to create a united front. In the mouth, the wine delivers ample power and momentum with dark flavors and firm structure. The wine need another few years of bottle aging to flesh out further. (ML) Inner quote mark (3/2016)
