Natalie's Score: 90/100
A smooth, supple Brunello that's approachable now. Often you have to wait a lot longer before Brunello of this age is ready to drink. Attractive aromas of black fruit, tar, violets and smoke. Pair with mushroom risotto or duck comfit.
Brunello di Montalcino food pairings: grilled steak, roast leg of lamb, hard cheese, veal piccata.

Lovely! Aromas of plum, dried berries, smoke, leather, and spice. Medium bodied and luscious fruit on the palate, nicely integrated with some smoky notes and medium acidity. Lengthy medium+ finish. Enjoy with rustic dishes, lamb, mushrooms, or pork.
|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Alluring and smooth. Delicate aromas of stewed plum, tobacco, sage, and earthy underbrush billow from your glass while delectable mouthwatering flavours of plum, dried dates, anise and tanned leather linger on the palate. Enjoy this full-bodied Tuscan golden child with braised lamb. Tasted May 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
|Brunello Di Montalcino typically needs an extended aging period before it can be approached to drink. However, the Bonacchi Brunello (2010) is smooth and supple with floral, black fruit, leather and spice. Made with 100% hand-picked Sangiovese grapes, the wine has aged for 4 years, 2 of them in barrel. A very elegant wine, it has been nurtured with tender loving care. Pair it with a slow-cooked brisket, or meat-stuffed pasta and a rich tomato sauce. - Community Wine Reviews|
