The wines of Montalcino in the southern part of Tuscany are universally recognized as among the finest in the world. Average Brunello vintages regularly produce high-scoring, Wine of the Year candidates-exceptional years offer benchmark wines that can age and merit revisiting over decades. Reknowned Italian wine writer James Suckling has weighed in on the 2010 vintage of Brunello di Montalcino, and the word is good: Suckling declares it no less than “the greatest modern vintage of Italy’s most famous red wine region.” After blind-tasting over 100 Brunello, Suckling was “amazed by the beauty, balance, and intensity” of the 2010 vintage.

Few wines truly capture the soul of Italian wine like Brunello di Montalcino. In great vintages such as this, they take on stunning elegance, suppleness, and concentration unlike anything else made in Italy, while retaining a uniqueness never duplicated elsewhere.

This is your opportunity to stock up on wines from some of Montalcino’s greatest producers, from what promises to be one of the greatest vintages ever, at presale prices.

The wines will arrive this spring, but we suggest buying now before the market, the press, and the Brunello faithful drive prices into the stratosphere. Don’t wait too long as there are limits to secure both the wines and pricing.

James Suckling (jamessuckling.com) "Never have the wines been so profound in quality, character, and quantity from the best hillside vineyards of Montalcino. They represent a new paradigm for Tuscany’s unique sangiovese-based red."

"They are incredibly drinkable yet structured at the same time – a true sign of great wine...you can enjoy them now but they will age gracefully and improve for decades ahead."

"...This is not a vintage to miss. It is as significant as the legendary 1997 vintage..."

"the 2010 Brunellos so enticing, even seductive. They are so fresh, complex and savory that they make you want to drink them."

"The 2010 vintage made great wines. There is no doubt about it. This is why you have to buy some."

"The 2010 vintage represents a new point for Brunello di Montalcino,” admits Vincenzo Abbruzzese, the owner of Valdicava, one of the great Brunello producers. His 2010 Brunello is a nearly perfect wine, 99 points, and this isn’t even the legendary single vineyard Brunello, Madonna del Piano Riserva. “The wines have a unique style that make them incredibly attractive when young but also structured and beautiful for aging. They will be the new standard in quality to judge all Brunello."

"It really is a historical year that show such amazing character and intensity," says Giacomo Neri, the owner of Casanova di Neri, one of the legendary Brunello producers in modern times. "It's the best vintage I have experience in my winemaking career and I started making wine in the early 1980s."
