Fattoria La Lecciaia Brunello di Montalcino 2010
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
|Brand||Fattoria La Lecciaia|
La Lecciaia's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is beautifully layered in the glass, with gorgeous intrigue, depth and personality all on full display. There is a sense of translucent finesse in the 2010 that is impossible to miss. Sweet red cherry, stone fruit, mint and wild flowers all grace the exquisite finish. What a pretty wine this is.
Licorice, leather and mint flavors trump the cherry and berry notes in this savory, balanced red, with a lively structure and fine length. Best from 2017 through 2030. 5,500 cases made.
Garnet colored with brick tones around the rim, this offers aromas of underbrush, vanilla, leather and dried berry. The palate is still rather closed but displays dried red cherry, white pepper, clove and savory herb alongside austere tannins and fresh acidity. Drink 2017-2022.
