$99.95
WA95

This Brunello is simply a KNOCKOUT. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. And from the incredible 2010 vintage, no less. We pounced on everything the importer had left in their warehouse. The Wine Advocate describes “A compelling and richly extracted wine, [this] delivers the goods in this classic vintage. La Rasina has done a great job of harnessing the more structured and opulent side of Sangiovese. This wine will appeal to those who like Brunello with the proverbial capital "B." The bouquet is stitched tight with dark fruit, spice and leather, and there is a seamless quality that feeds its generous intensity. The tannins are well managed and show successful integration. Sweet notes of pipe tobacco, cigar box and dark fruit drive forward the wine's powerful momentum.” A true classic, and irresistible!
