"Exceptionally Beautiful"
2010 Stella di Campalto Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

Posted by Ian McFadden

As many of you know, the 2010 Brunellos have a magical combination of concentration and intensity along with verve and purity.

Above all, the wines are marked by their finesse.

Stella di Compalto's graceful style is the perfect match for the superb 2010 vintage.

Stella di Campalto is a relatively young winemaker. She burst onto the scene with the impressive debut of her 2004 Brunello. The crystal clear, elegant style immediately garnered a cult following.

Stella di Campalto has an amazing knack for site specificity. The clarity of soil tones is startling. In 2010, the results are outstanding. The 2010 Riserva leads with striking aromatics and offers layers of pure, dense fruit, dried flowers and spice. The wine reveals a thrilling depth and concentration while remaining lifted and delicate. In short, it's a wine of shocking harmony, power and finesse.

This is one of our most anticipated 2010 Brunello releases. Sadly, Stella di Campalto is never available in large quantities, but the 2010 Riserva is absolutely brutal. Please give us your ideal order and we'll try our best.

2010 Stella di Campalto
Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is exceptionally beautiful, as it has always been. Sweet red cherry, sweet tobacco, dried flowers, plum, spice and mint are all pushed forward in an unusually deep, assertive Brunello from Campalto. The 2010 Riserva demands attention, and gets it. There is tremendous depth in the glass, yet the wine has also shut down considerably since I last tasted it about four months ago. With air, the 2010 begins to open up a bit, but it really needs to be left alone for at least another few years."
