Fossacolle's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is another stellar wine from a stellar vintage. This Brunello opens to dark concentration and deep ruby highlights that add to the wine's overall weight and importance. The bouquet is composed of a fine aromatic embroidery with cherry, spice, tobacco and grilled herb. What distinguishes this wine in the end is its superb texture. This Riserva walks a fine line between elegance and power, and it does a great job of delivering both. That density and determination bodes well for its future aging potential. - Monica Larner, Wine Advocate

A powerful, new-wave style with excellent concentration of fruit and loads of new oak but I think it will come together with time. Full body, chewy tannins and a long finish. This is a more blockbuster style, though it must be said I prefer a little something a little more harmonious at this stage. Better in 2018. - James Suckling

Brick-edged garnet. Sweet oak spice and a touch of vanilla on the nose. Thick and full-throttle on the palate, the thick texture taking away a little from the freshness, which is otherwise very appealing. I prefer the Brunello 2011 but this most likely has greater longevity. - Julia Harding MW - JancisRobinson.com
