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

"What a wine with salty, savory, light milk chocolate and iron character. It's full body, super integrated tannins and a long, long finish. It just makes you jump to attention. So lively and gorgeous. Drink or hold" James Suckling

"Tassi's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Franci opens to medium body and savory tones of Indian spice, dried fruit, licorice and dark cola and balsam herb which is very intense and attractive. This wine veers toward the ethereal and away from the obvious fruit and berry tones you get with less sophisticated Sangiovese. In fact, this is a wine that seemingly basks in the Brunello spotlight with all the small, enticing details and aromatic trimming you should expect of a wine of this craftsmanship. It ages 36 months in traditional large oak casks. The finish is feminine and delicate with rose hip, dried violets and forest tones. Tassi shows one of the most impressive lineups of the vintage. His style favors large oak casks made from Slovenian oak and tonneaux for elegant aging. Anticipated maturity: 2017 – 2028" Monica Larner

"A dark, juicy beauty, this 2010 Brunello offers gorgeous inner perfume, sweetness and mid-palate depth, all in an attractive mid-weight style with plenty of near and immediate term appeal. Hints of sweet tobacco, cedar, dried flowers and sage add nuance on the silky finish. This is another terrific showing from Fabio Tassi. 2016 - 2026" Antonio Galloni
