Ruby with violet hues. Intense, full-bodied and elegant with fruity notes of ripe blackberry and raspberry typical of Sangiovese. Well combined with the species and with the woody scents originating from the long ageing in the barrels.Highly structured wine, full and persistent. The ripe soft tannins are perfectly balanced with the acidity, long pleasant and sapid aftertaste.


AG 92+ JS 92 WA 91 Pts - According to Antonio Galloni - Col d'Orcia's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Vendemmia is all finesse. Sweet floral and spiced notes open up in the glass, followed by veins of bright red stone fruits. Hints of orange peel and white pepper add an attractive, beguiling upper register of aromatics. The 2010 is still a bit raw and much less expressive than it was from barrel, but it is promising.

According to James Suckling - A traditionally styled Brunello with nuts, cherries and plums on the nose and palate. Full to medium body, firm tannins and a fresh, lively finish. Delicious now but better in 2016.

According to Wine Advocate - The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is surprisingly subdued on first nose and a little unsteady on its feet at this young stage. Give it time and the wine gracefully brings out a long chorus line of aromas that hit the high notes and well and the low ones in slow increments. The bouquet is redolent of small forest berry, white ash, smoke, licorice, balsam herb and delicate spice. It's important to underline the extremely elegant and feminine personality of this wine. This Brunello has no place to go but up in terms of its complexity and evolution. Put it aside for at least five more years before popping the cork. 14.5% ABV.
