The 2010 Brunello Vintage is on fire, literally. Every one of our wine collectors, AND every major critic, has been asking for what's available in 2010 Brunello, and today's offer on the 2010 Il Marroneto is the perfect embodiment of this iconic year. And the reviews show it. At 97 points from the Wine Enthusiast, the 2010 Il Marroneto is the highest rated (non single Cru) Brunello di Montacino from the entire vintage, beating out Biondi Santi, Ciacci Piccolomini Pianroosso and Altesino Montosoli! Wow. Antonio Galloni, Monica Larner, the Wine Spectator, all wax poetic on this monumental vintage and on Il Marroneto in particular. There should be zero hesitation from you to buy this. At today's price, this is must-have for the collector and Italian Wine Lover, period.

97 pts, Wine Enthusiast
Multifaceted fragrances suggest violet, rose, red berry, baking spice, savory herb and a balsamic note. Elegant with great intensity, the radiant palate delivers juicy wild cherry, crushed berry, cinnamon and a note of star anise alongside a backbone of assertive, fine-grained tannins and bright acidity. It’s a gorgeous wine with breeding and class that needs time to bloom fully. Drink 2020–2035.

95 pts, The Wine Advocate
Beautifully ripe and intense, the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino never feels overdone or too heavy. In fact, it treads with the lightest of footprints imparting delicate tones of rose petal, forest berry, white cherry, balsam herb and sweet almond as it flutters over the senses. The main message here is elegance and this wine is profoundly eloquent on the subject. The mouthfeel is tight silky and enduring. Delicate mineral notes give focus and definition to the finish. This is a classic Brunello from an iconic vintage.

Wine maker notes
This classical Brunello, 100% Sangiovese, is made following the traditional style absolutely. This is the historic wine of the vineyard, elegant and structured at the same time.
