2010 Agostina Pieri Brunello Di Montalcino (RP 95)
AGOSTINA PIERI 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Brunello di Montalcino
Robert Parker Score 95:
The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is an irresistible wine that demonstrates just how far the Agostina Pieri brand has evolved over the past decade. This may be the best Brunello ever released by this boutique estate in the Piancornello subzone of the appellation. Most notable and compelling is the seamless integration of flavor and texture that is not easily achieved with the finicky Sangiovese grape. The wine opens to a dark ruby hue with aromas of dried cherry, cassis, blue flower, ginger and balsam herb. You get lingering mineral tones that create a sense of focus and sharpness. I tasted the wine very young, but am confident of the aging potential of this timeless Brunello.
