Aromas of blackberry, stone, slate, oyster shell and truffle, turning to a full body with soft, velvety tannins and a long, long finish. This goes on for minutes on the palate. A savory, gorgeous wine. Drink or hold.

Full of tension and energy, the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a beautiful wine that does honor to the magnificent 2010 vintage. The fruit nuances are layered and plentiful with loads of cherry, cassis and blackberry to keep your interest. The tannins are smooth and ripe with sweet overtones. The wine offers good complexity and definition. Drink this Brunello after 2017. - Monica Larner

Label

Silvio Nardi Brunello di Montalcino is a "Pure-Noble" Sangiovese wine. It is a wine for which blending translates to capturing different notes from different terroirs where softness arrives by gentle aging.

The wine has an intense ruby red color with garnet highlights. It has clean, sophisticated, intense and complex aromas, rich in evolved overtones, with hints of anise, ripe wild berries and a light touch of vanilla. Warm with supple tannins, this wine has great structure, good length and considerable aging capacity.

Winery

Nardi, Silvio

Tenute Silvio Nardi is a Tuscan wine estate founded in 1950 by Silvio Nardi with his purchase of Casale del Bosco’s estate in Montalcino. The vineyards, located in a primarily hilly area that ranges from 460 to 1,575 feet above sea level, comprise 36 plots that extend to the east and west of Montalcino and are grouped into three estates.

From Casale del Bosco comes the precious cru Brunello Poggio Doria, an elegant, aristocratic interpretation of Sangiovese. Casale del Bosco is located on the west side, offering elegant and complex wines. Manachiara, exposed to the east, offers full bodied and powerful wines.

Sangiovese is the estate’s tradition and has been planted on almost all of the estate’s lands although, in 8 of the 80 hectares owned, different varieties can be found—from most traditional varieties like Colorino to international ones like Merlot, Syrah and Petit Verdot.

Emilia, Silvio Nardi’s youngest daughter, joined the business in 1985 and since 1990 has succeeded her father in the general management of the estate, and has undertaken a reorganization of the vineyards and the cellar.
