"Extremely complex aromas of mushroom, stone, chalk, dark fruit and lightly dried bark or tea. Full bodied, with powerful and layered tannins. Muscular and intense. It needs loads of time to soften. Better in 2017."

"The year 2010 for Brunello di Montalcino is the greatest modern vintage of Italy’s most famous red wine region. 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." Italian Wine Critic James Suckling 12/1/14

Word is getting out fast that the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino vintage is truly special, quite arguably the best in modern times according to wine critic James Suckling and almost every other pundit who has tasted them. Most 2010 Brunellos won't arrive in the US market until the spring of 2015. That said, our buyers try to stay ahead of the curve and are already making great buys on 2010 Brunellos with an idea toward future arrival.

With today's offer, we kick off selling 2010 Brunellos with the incredible 2010 Brunello di Montalcino from San Filippo, which received 97 big points from Italian wine critic James Suckling. Those of you who are familiar with quality Brunellos certainly know that San Filippo is one of the best producers of this majestic wine. The 2010 San Filippo Brunello di Montalcino is selling at the incredibly low price of $44.99 with free shipping on every order!

Situated in the splendid area of northern Montalcino close to Biondi Santi’s Il Greppo, the wines of San Filippo are ageworthy and elegant, though very approachable in their youth. The estate totals almost 55 acres, half of which are under vine, dedicated mostly to Sangiovese. Founded in 1972 (1977 was the first year of production), the estate was recently purchased by Roberto Giannelli who restored and renovated the entire facility. With the help of Paolo Caciorgna, Roberto is producing 2,500 cases of Brunello aged in Slavonian and Allier oak casks each year

This wonderful Brunello is scheduled to arrive sometime around mid-Feb, about the same time as some of the other 2010 Brunellos. By the time spring rolls around and given very strong demand, our $44.99 price will almost seem like we're giving the wine away. Seriously, you won't find too many 2010 Brunellos selling for less than $50 - from Wine Library -- or anyone else. That's what makes this offer so enticing. If you have the patience to wait until April for your wine, you'll be well rewarded - both aesthetically as well as financially.
