Tasting Notes

Salvioni's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is deceptively medium in body and almost Burgundian in style at this stage in its life. Rose petal, cherry pit, smoke and tobacco notes abound as this delicate, understated Brunello very gradually reveals its striking beauty. Unlike so many 2010s, the Salvioni Brunello needs at least a few years in bottle, as it is quite shy and reticent today. Still, there is plenty of the classic Salvioni fruit, bouquet and texture in the glass. Once again, the Salvioni family has crafted one of the most exquisite, pure wines in Montalcino. Interestingly, a bottle tasted in my office in New York was far more expressive than the bottle I tasted at the winery. Readers who can find the 2010 should not hesitate, as it is fabulous. I imagine the 2010 will provide 20-25 years of drinking pleasure.
