"So much dried lemon and orange peel character here. Wet leaf, wet earth, stone and lightly smoked meat. Full body, integrated tannins and a savory and tangy finish. Fleshy and yummy. Fabulous deal here."~JS
Wine Spectator 93
"Cigar box and leather aromas are balanced by strawberry and cherry notes at the core. There is a vibrant, refreshing quality here, with a long, complex aftertaste. Best from 2019 through 2033."–BS

"Lovely fragrances of pressed powder, black berries, rose and tilled soil waft from the glass. The firm palate offers wild cherry, raspberry, cinnamon, licorice and savory herb alongside tightly knit but refined tannins. Fresh acidity balances this out but it’s still young and not fully developed. Drink 2020–2030."— K.O.
Wine Advocate 92
"Caparzo's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a lush and voluptuous wine with soft cherry aromas at the front of spice, dark chocolate and toasted almond. The wine is more approachable in style with a drinking window that can offer pleasure to those too impatient to wait. The tannins are also more evolved and integrated for a more gentle approach. The finish is marked by an evident touch of vanilla from the oak."~ML
