We are thrilled to announce that James Suckling just awarded our first Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2010 rating and gave us 97 points!
Here are his tasting notes:
“The aromas to this Brunello riserva are stunning with subtle forest fruits, orange peel and mushrooms. Full body, very fine tannins and a long and persistent finish. The flavors are so complex with earth and dark fruits. Very fine and dusty tannins. Drink or hold.”
We look forward to our 2010 Brunello Riserva releasing in February. We reserve our best Sangiovese from the oldest vines on our estate for the Riserva. Riserva is only released in five star vintage years. The last five star vintage was 2007.
