- Valdicava Brunello Di Montalcino 2010 Magnum Product #29221 (In Stock)
"Valdicava” is always one of the most respected names in the Brunello zone of Tuscany’s Montalcino region. Owner/winemaker Vincenzo Abbruzzese’s meticulous, biodynamic, farming, naturally low yields, minimal intervention winemaking, and viciously strict selection in vineyard and cellar delivers lush, powerful, Brunello that impresses young and unfurls beautifully with a decade-plus in cellar. There’s always a lush, rich, texture to Vincenzo’s wines and oodles of ripe black cherry fruit, but also lovely accents of crushed flowers, tobacco, licorice, balsamic, and more. I suspect this will be fairly closed on arrival, so plan to give it a few years to open.
“Absolutely stunning aromas of nectarine, orange peel, sweet black cherry, plums and flowers. Licorice and mushroom. It's full bodied, with layers of ultra-fine tannins and hints of tangy acidity. Such beautiful length and beauty to this wine. It's powerful and structured yet shows a gorgeous finesse and length. Truly wondrous. So long and refined. The texture is phenomenal. Better in 2016.” James Suckling 99 points
