2010 Ciacci Piccolomini Brunello Di Montalcino

"The year 2010 for Brunello di Montalcino is the greatest modern vintage of Italy’s most famous red wine region. Never have the wines been so profound in quality, character, and quantity from the best hillside vineyards of Montalcino. They represent a new paradigm for Tuscany’s unique sangiovese-based red...They showed such energy and intensity yet were rich and deep on the palate. And most have a fascinating savory, almost salty character that makes them succulent and incredibly satisfying to taste." -James Suckling This is a wine that combines the extraordinary pedigree of one of Brunello's great producers with the magic of the 2010 vintage at a sharp, sharp price. This wine is a 'must-own' Brunello for 2010, especially considering the price. Our Buying Team hit NYC recently to taste through many of the 2010 Brunello's, including the 2010 Ciacci, and simply put, the wines are stunning! James Suckling's 94 point review on the 2010 Ciacci Piccolomini loved its "full body and full integrated ripe tannins [that] caress your palate...succulent and enticing." If you've been looking for the right moment to jump on 2010 Brunello, THIS is that time. This offer is a pre-sale and will arrive in the Spring of 2015. [+]
