Il Marroneto Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2010

$89.99

Beautifully ripe and intense, the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino never feels overdone or too heavy. In fact, it treads with the lightest of footprints imparting delicate tones of rose petal, forest berry, white cherry, balsam herb and sweet almond as it flutters over the senses. The main message here is elegance and this wine is profoundly eloquent on the subject. The mouthfeel is tight silky and enduring. Delicate mineral notes give focus and definition to the finish. This is a classic Brunello from an iconic vintage. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

2010 - Quite a benchmark among Montalcino wines, this relatively young Brunello di Montalcino shines for elegance and balance. Outstanding. #Vinitaly

Fantastic aromas and lovely purity of fruit showing lovely ripeness, but with acidity and tannic grip for balance. Built for the long haul but its impeccable balance does bring loads of enjoyment already.

Red fruit and rose petals. Smells like a CS. M acid, dark fruit. M+ tannin and finish. Needs a bit of time.

Built to age, this still tight and fresh version shows great tension and defined aromati purity. The minerality offered on the lengthy finish adds complexity to its concentrated, sincerely classic Sangiovese flavor profile. A true beauty.

2010 was an iconic vintage! Silky tannins, smooth yet robust finish. Needed nothing to make this bottle perfect
