Castiglion Del Bosco Brunello Di Montalcino 2010

Product description

Complexity, superb structure, and an inviting, mouthfilling palate are the hallmarks of this Sangiovese. A garnet-flecked ruby red, it releases generous, emphatic fragrances classic to Sangiovese, developing a nearly endless progression notable for its beautiful balance. Excellent with stews, roasted meats and cheese.

96 Points - James Suckling

Fabulous aromas of oranges, peaches and mahogany follow through to a full body, with rich and chewy tannins and a long and flavorful finish. This is dense and tight and powerful. It is compressed and incredibly structured. Needs four to five years of bottle age to come out of it domancy.

94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a ripe and fruit-forward expression that bursts with energy and red fruit intensity even at this young stage in the wine's life. Thick layers of cherry, blackberry, cassis, vanilla and cinnamon give the wine a bold, opulent personality. The tannins are super tame and docile, even for this more structured vintage. The wine boasts a medium build with bright garnet and ruby highlights. I think Castiglion del Bosco does a great job of executing and delivering this softer style of Brunello that works so well as a companion to the hearty, wintery foods we love most. You can drink it in the near or long term. It has that level of aging flexibility. The 2010 vintage is a great one to taste and buy.

94 Points - Wine Spectator

Complex and elegant, with cherry, licorice, leather and incense flavors. The firm grip of tannins quickly takes over, but this is long, echoing leather and spice. Best from 2019 through 2035. 2,100 cases imported.
