90(+?)? Points | International Wine Cellar , July 2010

Bright saturated ruby. Redcurrant and cinnamon aromas are complicated by an herbal nuance. At once sweet and tangy, with mineral and mint notes lifting the moderately intense but juicy red berry and red cherry flavors. Shows a lovely spicy/floral quality and plenty of inner-palate energy, but could use a bit more concentration. Finishes with firm, ripe tannins. Owner Piero Palmucci releases his Brunello a year later than everyone else, so this wine will not be on the market until next year. Though quite pure in its varietally accurate sangiovese aromas and flavors, this Brunello tastes less concentrated than usual, and seems to be very much the product of a rainy, cooler year. Perhaps it will pick up volume and flesh with another year or so in the bottle. (Robert Chadderdon Selections, New York NY; Classic Wine Imports, West Roxbury MA)
