Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2010
99 pts. James Suckling (1/2015): "Absolutely stunning aromas of nectarine, orange peel, sweet black cherry, plum, flower, licorice and mushroom. Full body with layers of ultra-fine tannins and hints of tangy acidity. Such beautiful length and beauty to this wine. It's powerful and structured but shows a gorgeous finesse and length. Truly wondrous. So long and refined. The texture is phenomenal."
96 pts. Wine Spectator (6/2015): "Effusive aromas of incense, green olive, sweet strawberry and cherry, licorice and leather mark this structured version. The tannins are on the beefy side, but this finishes long, with enough fruit and spice for balance. Best from 2018 through 2032."
In case you weren't aware, 2010 is considered among the best, "5 star vintages" in Tuscany. And Valdicava is considered one of the most well-respected wineries in Tuscany! They consistently produce amazing Brunellos with a comparatively bolder, more full-bodied flavor all their own. The vineyards are situated on the north side of Montalcino and the wine spends more time in French Oak than most other Brunellos. If you are an Italian wine fan, you must add this one to your collection!
At Wine Factor, all of our "tasters" gave this a "5 star" !
