The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Annata is a real knock-out. This is very tight and muscular. Needs at least four to five years to soften. The legend lives.

James Suckling

Sweet berries with sliced cherries and mushrooms. Pungent flowers and fresh mushrooms, too. Full-bodied with layers of round, succulent tannins that are enveloped in ripe fruit. It’s rich and lively at the finish. A rather plush and exciting Monsanto. Really excellent now, but even better in 2024.

17.5 / 20

Blackish ruby. Classic Sangiovese nose with extra depth plus drive. Fragrant yet deep-rooted. Really edgy acidity. Very fine wine by any measure with pace and nuance.
