Tenuta Greppone Mazzi 2010 Brunello Di Montalcino

Tenuta Greppone Mazzi 2010 Brunello Di Montalcino, $46.74-$54.99, 93 points, poured a deep maroon grading a brilliant sunburst red toward the glass bowl.
Aromatic lavender and roses slowly wafted over early blueberry and red fruit aromas.
Medium-plus body, approachable supportive tannin, and a rather single minded masculine flavor profile of pomegranate, a kick-@$$ spicy pepper, and an appropriate 14.5% alcohol MANifested a near perfect gestalt.
The Greppone Mazzi 2010 Brunello was 'bone-dry', and so good, I simple sipped it alone!
After six years of sinking my teeth into wine, I still find it helpful to consult John from Tuscan Vines, because spending a fifty or a hundred on a wine is serious business, not only that, this link has my favorite picture of him!

  1. You're a crack up. Hey, how do you know that's me? :) Thanks for the mention as always Dennis. I give you credit; this isn't a wine I would have pulled the trigger on because I'm not too impressed with much of what Ruffino offers. I'm glad it worked out well and I think again, it's a tribute to the 2010s. I've had a few lower level "negociant" wines from that vintage and they've been very good. Vintage over Producer in this case, as it were.


    1. John: there were others which loved this wine last night! You were right about the 2010 vintage, and I think I might have a couple more to try; Brunello in NH has been scarce this year!
