2010 Sesta di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1438185 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The excellent 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a true standout of the vintage. This is a deep, full-bodied expression with thick aromatic layers that give the bouquet a greater semblance of importance and intensity. Dark plum, blackberry, dried cherry, licorice, tar, black truffle, leather and cured meat all play supporting roles. The wine ages in large oak casks for three years for a slow oxidative evolution that has set the course for this wine's steady lonegevity. Smoke, ash and crushed stone make for elegant background tones. Drink it after 2017. (ML) Inner quote mark (2/2015)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Sesta di Sopra's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is fabulous. Dark red cherry, plum, smoke, cedar and savory herbs open up in a pliant, deep wine loaded with personality. Sweet and layered through the mid-palate, the 2010 is already incredibly delicious. The style is rich, resonant and ample, very much in keeping with the personality of this site in Castelnuovo dell'Abate. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2015)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A beautiful red with berry, chocolate and plum aromas. Iodine and oyster-shell undertones. It's full-bodied and dense with a beautiful depth of fruit and richness. Firm, fine tannins. Need four to five years of bottle age to soften. Inner quote mark (1/2015)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Intense aromas suggest dark berry, forest floor, savory spice, menthol, leather and a balsamic note. The juicy palate offers crushed wild cherry, black raspberry, cinnamon, savory herb and licorice. It's well balanced and vibrant but hold for complexity. Drink 2020–2030. (KO) Inner quote mark (5/2015)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A rich, meaty style, with plenty of plum, black cherry, iron, leather and earth flavors. The tannins are beefy, but all the elements fit together in a brawny, muscular package. Fine length. Best from 2019 through 2033. (BS) Inner quote mark (6/2015)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Deep ruby with the beginning of orange. Backward nose with a tiny hint of spice. Lavish fruit and solidly build, yet not heavy, and with plenty of bite. Can be enjoyed now. 16.5/20 points. (WS) Inner quote mark (1/2015)
