Wine Brunello di Montalcino DOCG
Winery FRANCI FRANCA
Vintage 2010
Format 750 ml

"The beautifully crafted 2010 Brunello di Montalcino opens to a gorgeous appearance that shows both intense ruby vitality and dark density. The bouquet offers subtle tones of black cherry, blackberry, spice and licorice that roll smoothly off the surface. Those tones are absolutely seamless in both execution and presentation. As the wine takes on more air in the glass, it begins to show spice, tobacco and chocolate adding opulence and decadent richness. It offers amazing flexibility that will appeal to those who appreciate both elegance and power in their Brunello. Tassi shows one of the most impressive lineups of the vintage. Alberto Antonini is the consulting enologist at this young property with limestone and clay soils. The house style favors large oak casks made from Slovenian oak and tonneaux for elegant aging. 2017 - 2028" Monica Larner

"Lots of dried cherry, sliced orange and ash aromas follow through to a medium to full body, with soft tannins and a jammy, light tomato leaf and meat character. Hints of smoky wood too. Opulent and flamboyant. Drink or hold" James Suckling

"Supply, juicy and forward, all of which makes an excellent choice for drinking pretty much on upon release. Sweet red cherries, plums, hard candy, mint and spices flesh out in this deliscious, open-knit Brunello from Fabio Tassi. This is one of the more fruit-forward wines of the year, yet all the elements are in the right place. 2016 - 2026" Antonio Galloni
