2010 Tenuta di Sesta Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1248841 95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Wonderful perfumes to this wine with hints of hot stone, blackberry, orange peel and nectarine on the nose. Full body, with a beautiful concentration of fruit and compacted tannins. The texture is every so silky and fine. It goes on for minutes. A beauty. Hot stone character at the finish too. A gorgeous and friendly wine. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (12/2014)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The elegant 2010 Brunello di Montalcino shows an impressive degree of inner grace and harmony. This wine expresses itself articulately with the softest tones. No part of its message is too loud. In fact, it whispers seductively with small fruit aromas, forest bramble, root beer, dried herb and balsam notes. The effect is feminine and finessed. Polished tannins make way for fresh acidity and long persistency. This Brunello sees 30 months of aging in large oak casks and is fermented with indigenous yeasts. Giovanni Ciacci's Tenuta di Sesta is one of the historic estates in Montalcino (founded in 1850) from the Castelnuovo dell'Abate sub-zone. It is celebrated for its classic expressions of Brunello and detail-minded winemaking. The 2010 vintage has been especially favorable to the Ciacci family. (ML) Inner quote mark (2/2015)

91 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Slightly subdued on the nose, then fresher, richer and more intense on the palate with spicy red berry and iron flavours. Cocktail of spices at the back palate with plenty of leather and cigar hints. (panel tasting) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

According to K&L Italian buyer Greg St. Clair, Tenuta di Sesta's Brunellos are "Ever so subtle at first, but then the depth of Montalcino's south face comes forth, the supple texture luxuriates on your palate and the wine lengthens, exposing the mineral, earth and wild herb notes that are at its core."
