James Suckling
The purity of fruit and saline undertones with hints of gravel and stones are both impressive on the nose. This turns to violets and roses. It's full body with ultra-fine tannins and a cool, sleek texture and style. It builds on the palate. So much here. Mind-bending. Better in 2018 but already exquisite.

Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
Reviewer, Monica Larner - Depicting Capri's Grotta Azzurra on the label, the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Filo di Seta is an oak-driven expression with elaborate tones of cinnamon, vanilla and roasted coffee bean that wrap thickly around fruity tones of blackberry and blackcurrant. The wine is soft and yielding with a rich embroidery of soft tannins and pulpy fruit extraction. There is that characteristic touch of bright acidity you get with Sangiovese. This pretty Brunello delivers all the qualities needed for medium and long-term drinking. It does need another two or three years of bottle aging however to fully flesh out.
 

Additional Information

Sub-Region :
Tuscany
Once internationally ill reputed for producing an ocean of mediocre red wine, Tuscany has regained its place in the sun by focusing on quality rather than quantity. Red wine grapes, particularly Sangiovese, dominate Tuscany’s rolling hills. Sangiovese is the primary grape in the two most famous Tuscan wines: Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino. Cabernet Sauvignon also prospers in Tuscany, where it is blended with Sangiovese to produce sensational "Super Tuscans" like Sassicaia and Tignanello. View all our items from Tuscany
Region :
Italy
As the world’s top wine-exporter, Italy is an important wine region both because of the amount and quality of wines produced. Just two grapes—Nebbiolo and Sangiovese—are used to make some of the finest Italian wines, including Barolo, Brunello de Montalcino and Chianti. Still, Italy is home to dozens of wine grape varieties, with important wines being made from Corvina, Barbera, Cortese, Moscato and traditionally French varietals. The major wine regions include Piedmont, Tuscany, Emilia-Romagna, Veneto, Campania and others. Most producers follow the government-regulated DOC classification system, with a few notable exceptions including the esteemed “Super Tuscan” producers. View all our items from Italy
