Natalie's Score: 93/100
Great concentration and depth of flavour on the palate. This blockbuster is in serious need of cellar time. This full-bodied red wine features aromas of blackberry, black plums, smoky oak and tar. It's fairly smooth, though this will improve with aging. Decant for 1-2 hours when you open it. A powerful and classic Italian red wine. Pair with prime rib. Brunello Di Montalcino food pairings: pasta in meat sauce, spicy sausages, grilled meats, game.
Brunello Di Montalcino food pairings: hard cheese, veal piccata, grilled steak, roast leg of lamb.
Harmonious Hard Cheese Wine

|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
This Brunello is bright garnet with voluptuous aromatics of worn leather, earthy notes, savoury herbs, dark dense cherry core with red fruit. 100% Sangiovese grapes. 15% ABV. With 2 years in wood, this wine has aged gracefully and is elegant on the palate. Complex, well-balanced and integrating nicely. This is a mid price quality wine, perfect for gifting. Ideal window 2016-2025. Pair this wine with rack of lamb, braised beef in red reduction. Recommend buying at least two, as this bottle is evolving nicely. Decant 2h. This is a concentrated, complex, with potential to evolve in glass and in the cellar. Drinking well now. @jonsteeves rated 92/100 @VanWineFest 2016
|Alana L rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Beautiful garnet color, decanted 2 hours - good depth and concentration but consensus was that wood notes overpowered the second notes of black fruit. Still a lovely full-bodied smooth classic Italian red wine - would mot necessarily age the 2010 further. Paired well with grilled artisanal Italian sausages.
|This is the magnum size of this Italian red wine, equivalent to two regular bottles. The Brunello di Montalcino from Tuscany is juicy, mouthwatering and lush with fruit on the mid-palate. - Community Wine Reviews|
