Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 95 points

This is a spectacular effort. The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva shows deep, inner intensity and lovely aromatic characteristics that are very true to the mighty Sangiovese grape. You can't go wrong with a wine like this, especially if you are seeking the true flavors of Montalcino. The aromas are presented in neat and tidy fashion with wild berry, blue flower, spice and herb that converge to create a united front. In the mouth, the wine delivers ample power and momentum with dark flavors and firm structure. The wine need another few years of bottle aging to flesh out further.

Wine Spectator: 93 points

This is tightly wound and powerful, featuring strawberry, cherry, hibiscus tea, earth and tobacco flavors. Racy and firm, this finishes with freshness and excellent length. Best from 2019 through 2034. 1,000 cases made.

A kaleidoscope of aromas, flavors and textures hit the palate in Costanti's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva. A huge, vertical wine, the 2010 opens up in all directions with remarkable depth and aristocratic power. Lavender, violets, crushed rocks, dark spices and black cherries are some of the notes that open up, but the 2010 Riserva is above all else a wine of structure and bold, dramatic beauty. The flavors are remarkably crystalline for such a big, virile Brunello. I can't wait to taste the 2010 again next year. This is a magical, spellbinding Brunello from Andrea Costanti.
