Deep dark red colour with a tinge of black around the edges and a dark red hue. Perfumed aromas of ripe dark cherries infused with violets are followed by earthy tobacco characters, dried herbs, cedar and spice. Medium bodied, rich and savoury the palate dishes out flavours of dark cherries, cedar, earthy tobacco, dried herb infusions and spice. Opening with a supple mouthfeel it becomes more chewy in texture towards the dryish finish. Fine grained tannins. Excellent power with a long aftertaste of dark cherries infused with dried herbs, cedary tobacco, earth and spice.
Cellar 6-8 years.
Wonderful texture to this Brunello with so much dried fruit, chalk, stone, salt and light chocolate character. It's full body, fine tannins and bright acidity delivers a complete package with beauty and elegance. Better in 2016.
James Suckling - December 1, 2014
Il Palazzone's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is racy, sumptuous and quite pretty. Sweet tobacco, mint and licorice are woven throughout, adding considerable nuance to a core of red-fleshed fruit. Silky tannins and an overall feeling of resonance give the 2010 considerable early appeal, but there is more than enough structure to ensure a decade or so of very pleasurable drinking ahead. Sweet floral and spiced notes reappear on the feminine, gracious finish. This is a very beautiful wine from Il Palazzone. Drink 2015 – 2025.
The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is aged for 41 months in large oak casks to produce nicely evolved aromas of dried cherry, smoked ham, prune, plum, licorice and grilled herb. The wine shows well both in terms of intensity and purity of varietal fruit and that slow oxidative process in wood has allowed for extra aromatic depth and definition. After a few minutes in the glass, the wine warms to show fruit-heavy flavors of cherry and forest fruit. The is a Brunello of elegance and poise that should hold well for the next decade or longer. Drink 2016 - 2028.
