It's one of the best vintages of all time
The Wine Spectator scored this entire vintage 98 Points as a whole in Montalcino
Find yourself asking, just how good is this vintage? The answer is quite simply ... it's one of the best vintages in Montalcino history. The Wine Spectator did not yet rate this specific wine, however, they gave the vintage as a whole 98 Points which ranks it right up there with the monumental 2001 and 1997 vintages.
The wrote "Perfect late summer weather resulted in ideal ripening for Sangiovese; wines are fresh, elegant, balanced and structured, with ample ripe fruit flavors. The best should age beautifully"
The time is now for so many of these outstanding 2010's. With the 2011's starting to show up on store shelves, the top wines from the 2010 vintage are becoming harder and harder to find. Especially those wines that are made in smaller quantities ... like this one.
The 94 Point score here is only part of the story
The ex-Wine Spectator Senior Editor and European Bureau Chief James Suckling has raved for years.
It all started in many years ago when James Suckling, then writing for the Wine Spectator, issued a 90 Point score to the 2001 Mate Brunello in the July 31st, 2006 edition of the Wine Spectator. Since then, he has issued eight 90 Point scores in total for this wine over the years, starting with the Spectator, and then on his own site Jamessuckling.com.
Suckling wrote on the 2010 release - "A red that delivers so much rose bush, dried meat, strawberry and sea salt character. It's full body, with firm and silky tannins and a long and intense finish. High toned Brunello. Better in 2017."
Consistency is key with so many producers and in this case, this winery clearly has it.
Knock knock. Who's there? Gaja and Soldera
This winery is situated next to some pretty famous neighbors
For many of you, Mate might be a new producer. There is a ton to discover here.
As the website notes "Ferenc Máté and his wife Candace, a painter, left New York City in 1990 for the Tuscan countryside. In one of the world’s most prestigious wine zones, the seaward slopes of Montalcino, they bought an ancient, abandoned farm with two hills, a canyon with waterfalls and a 13th century friary with a tower and courtyard. Their neighbors were world-renowned wine makers Angelo Gaja and Gianfranco Soldera. Being perfectionists, the Mátés performed a “museum quality” restoration of the friary, then hired Gaja’s agronomist and France’s Pierre Guillaume to select the best varietals and clones in planting their four vineyards of wonderfully varied exposition, elevation and soil composition."
Ultra rare, this Brunello is made in very small quantities
You won't find this bottle in many shops. Brunello buyers will flat out love this
Production here is always limited. Only a handful of cases of this were produced, making it one of the more difficult bottles of Brunello to find. Take that into consideration along with the rock star vintage, and you've got a really special offer in front of you.
While many of you will not be able to resist the immediate charm that this bottle delivers, collectors looking to add a case or two of high end Brunello to their collection should 100% add this right away. Not only is it something that we don't see on the market often (only a handfull of shops show up on Wine Searcher at the moment), it's a wine that we know will open the eyes of so many Brunello buyers.
It will be a discovery of sorts for so many of you. And a big one at that!
