“Glorious ripe fruit to this wine with blackberry and cherry character. Full body, soft and silky tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Gorgeous young Brunello. Better after 2018 but so wonderful now to taste!”.
James Suckling. (JamesSuckling.com January 2015).
“A bright, delicate style, offering floral, strawberry, cherry and tobacco aromas and flavors. Harmonious, with refined tannins. A mineral note emerges on the long, supple aftertaste”.
Bruce Sanderson. (The Wine Spectator. June 2015).
“Dario Ciacci’s 2010 Brunello di Montalcino offers a beautiful and unique interpretation of the vintage with savory tones of spice and bresaola backed by fresher notes of red cherry, blackberry and crème de cassis. You also get a high degree of grilled herb and pressed flower that hammer home the wine’s varietal trueness. It shows silky tannins and an extremely polished approach. A sweet note of cherry and vanilla appears on the close. This is a Brunello of medium density but long persistence”.
Monica Larner, (The Wine Advocate. February 2015).
“Wine lovers are rejoicing at the incredibly high quality of the vintage,and rightly so.The 2010 vintage is a new benchmark for Tuscany’s icon wine,producing reds with incredible structure.and energy.I find the depth of fruit,flavor and savory,almost mineral undertone of the wines spellbinding”.
James Suckling. (2010 Brunello di Montalcino Tasting Report).
“2010 is the best vintage I have experienced in my winemaking career,and I started making wine in the early 1980s”.
