This earthy, balsamic expression of Sangiovese opens with aromas of tilled soil, ripe berry, leather, fennel and menthol. The palate offers dried Morello cherry, celery, ground pepper and grilled herb alongside firm but refined tannins. Drink 2017-2028.

The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is shorter and not as profound as many of the other Brunellos from this extraordinary vintage. The bouquet offers moderate aromas of cherry and dark spice with licorice, cola and grilled herb at the back. The bouquet hits all the right marks. However, this wine glides overs the palate in quick waves and leaves little impact on the mid-palate. I was very surprised by this wine's mild-mannered approach, especially for a vintage that is characterized by power. Drink Date: 2017-2024.

Sweet cherry and berry fruit is accented by juniper and sage notes in this sinewy red, which is balanced and almost ready to enjoy. Drink now through 2024. 838 cases made.
