Fattoria La Lecciaia Brunello Di Montalcino 2010 Fattoria La Lecciaia Brunello Di Montalcino 2010

 

"This is very strong showing from La Lecciaia, one of Montalcino's under the radar estates. The wines show gorgeous Sangiovese purity. The wines are fairly classic in style across the board.  La Lecciaia's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is beautifully layered in the glass, with gorgeous intrigue, depth and personality all on full display. There is a sense of translucent finesse in the 2010 that is impossible to miss. Sweet red cherry, stone fruit, mint and wild flowers all grace the exquisite finish. What a pretty wine this is."  Vinous (Antonio Galloni) 94 points

Fattoria La Lecciaia Brunello Di Montalcino Riserva 2010 Product #32578 (In Stock)
Fattoria La Lecciaia Brunello Di Montalcino Riserva 2010 Fattoria La Lecciaia Brunello Di Montalcino Riserva 2010

A stunner from the brilliant 2010 harvest, showing nicely now with air and shining through 2029 at least.

"Plum and orange peel with hints of milky chocolate follow through to a full body, silky palate. Typical outstanding Brunello 2010 riserva. Drink or hold."  James Suckling 93 points

"A powerful, incisive wine, the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva hits the palate with bruising tannins, and plenty of intense, mineral/savory/ feral overtones. Readers should be prepared to cellar the 2010 for at last another few years, as the wine is pretty closed down today. Still, this is an expressive, if somewhat burly and brooding, Riserva from La Lecciaia. The mysterious, somewhat elusive personality that makes Sangiovese so intriguing is very much in evidence. Sweet floral and spice notes add aromatic lift on the finish."  Vinous (Galloni) 93 points

"The star of the show among La Lecciaia's new releases is the mid weight 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva. A little slow to open, the wine shows power and depth followed by a pretty embroidery of varietal aromas. This wine is focused on the small details and the finer nuances. Lingering aromas of wild berry, toasted nut, smoke, wet earth, cola and balsam herb add brightness and buoyancy to the bouquet. There is a dry mineral note on the finish that serves to give weight and definition. The wine reveals tight tannins and a silky feel. Drink 2017-2029"Wine Advocate 93 points

Livio Sassetti Pertimali Brunello Di Montalcino 2012 Product #32643 (In Stock)
Livio Sassetti Pertimali Brunello Di Montalcino 2012 Livio Sassetti Pertimali Brunello Di Montalcino 2012

From a cooler site in the northern part of the zone, on nicely sloped vineyards facing southeast, sparing them the most intense sunshine of the day.  Farming is ultra old-school – all organic, low yields, hand harvesting – as is the winemaking – crush, ferment, aged 3 years in large, neutral, oak casks.  The result is a wine that’s at once powerful and elegant.  The fruit is very fresh and vibrant now and will stay that way as it gets darker and richer over the next few years.  There’s plenty of structure and masses of tannins, but they are supremely ripe tannins that dissolve easily on your palate (and in your cellar).  Fun to taste now, better in 2019, and best from 2020-2032.

"Complex aromas of dried figs, dark fruits and hints of walnuts and dried meat. Full body, dense and polished palate. Velvety and poised tannins and a flavorful finish. Yet always refined and beautiful. You want to drink it now and can, but it has a beautiful future."  James Suckling 98 points

Mastrojanni Brunello Di Montalcino 2012 Product #31872 (In Stock)
Mastrojanni Brunello Di Montalcino 2012 Mastrojanni Brunello Di Montalcino 2012

Lovely now and for years to come.

"Luminous red. Highly complex nose offers aromas of red cherry, raspberry, flint and violet, plus a touch of beef bouillon; this is a candidate for the most complex nose of the vintage. Then textbook Sangiovese flavors of flinty red cherries, licorice and minerals. Long and clean on the perfumed, highly mineral finish."  Vinous (D'Agata) 93+ points

"Beautifully saturated and dark, the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino offers a distinctively sophisticated personality. There's an air of nobility that is natural to Brunello, but that comes in limited supply in this warm vintage. You definitely get it here. The wine's bouquet offers a compelling medley of dark fruit tones that shift into savory spicy and balsam herb. Those automatic transitions are smooth and seamless. Another nice quality of the wine is that no one element overpowers or overshadows the other. It offers a great sense of balance. This wine has many cards to play and I am confident it will play them well over the next ten years of its evolution."Wine Advocate 94 points

Casanova Di Neri Brunello Tenuta Nuova 2012 Product #31982 (In Stock)
Casanova Di Neri Brunello Tenuta Nuova 2012 Casanova Di Neri Brunello Tenuta Nuova 2012

As Monica Learner has written in Wine Advocate, this was the wine that launched the concept of “Modern” Brunello – ultra-ripe, dense, wines clearly marked by the influence of small French oak barrels.  The wood can be a bit overwhelming when the wine is young – showing as smoke, chocolate and vanilla – but melds into the wine nicely by 7-8 years from the vintage.  It’s been Wine Spectator’s Wine of the Year (in 2006) and made the Top 100 two other times (2000 and 2011).  And while the 96 point 2012 isn't at the same level as the Wine Advocate 100 point 2010, this the most highly rated vintage for Tenuta Nuova ever aside from that perfect harvest.  You can decant and taste now, but the real excitement starts from 2020 - 2027.

"Lots of spice, balsamic and ripe-fruit character to this one. Walnut undertones. Full to medium body, a compressed structure of ripe tannins and packed-in fruit. Vibrant finish. Best in 2019."  James Suckling 96 points

"The Casanova di Neri 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova is a beautiful wine that recalls many of the stunning characteristics found in its high-scoring predecessor. I gave a perfect 100 points to the 2010 edition of this same wine. This expression, made two years later, continues in that tradition of excellence. The quality of fruit is profound and intense. The bouquet offers black cherry, spice, leather, balsam herb, cola and licorice. The complexity is absolutely impressive. This remains one Bellissimo Brunello."Wine Advocate 96 points
