According to many experts the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino wines are outstanding!
The 2010 harvest in Montalcino benefitted from an ideal growing season. Mother Nature cooperated to produce outstanding Brunello di Montalcino wines. Brunelli that are full, suave, well balanced; complete wines that are remarkably charming. These full flavoured, elegant terroir wines should age quite well. Great Tuscan reds that impress with complexity and surprising freshness. This outstanding vintage could be the best since 2004.
At Les Conseillers du Vin, we decided to taste a selection of wines from reputed producers to verify the aging potential, richness and balance of this excellent Brunello di Montalcino vintage. How long should we leave these fine Brunelli in our cellar? And how much should we pay for these high quality Sangiovese based reds? A group of 16 experienced tasters analysed 7 Brunelli plus a mystery wine in the usual blind tasting format.
