Reviews and Ratings

Simon Chen rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

This is a terrific wine but it takes several hours to open up! Initially, it was tight and the nose is muted. Very woody, tart plum. I let it open (in the bottle) for 3.5 hours and wow, the texture becomes velvety, bright red fruits, soft acidity, and long finish.
Carparzo La Casa (2010) is a full-bodied, structured and intense Brunello di Montalcino. with a wild blue flowers, dusty blackberry nose. Lots of dark fruit, dried fruit, structure and lush on the palate. This wine could definitely cellar for a few years for it to show its best. - Community Wine Reviews
