96 points "96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate The excellent 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a true standout of the vintage. This is a deep, full-bodied expression with thick aromatic layers that give the bouquet a greater semblance of importance and intensity. Dark plum, blackberry, dried cherry, licorice, tar, black truffle, leather and cured meat all play supporting roles. The wine ages in large oak casks for three years for a slow oxidative evolution that has set the course for this wine's steady lonegevity. Smoke, ash and crushed stone make for elegant background tones. Drink it after 2017. Enrica Bandirola's Sesta di Sopra is a 44-hecatre estate located near Castelnuovo dell'Abate on the southern side of the appellation. This property has proudly produced one of the most beautiful wines of the 2010 Brunello harvest. (2/ 2015)" Best 2017-2024
