Sassodisole Brunello di Montalcino is a true red wine gem from the spectacular 2010 vintage for Brunello. Roberto Terzuoli's eight-hectare estate is located in the northeastern part of the Brunello appellation and has south-facing vines planted at 300 meters above sea level. The family uses large oak casks for making classic Brunello.

A red with dried berry and cherry character, lots of spices from nutmeg to cloves. Full bodied, velvety tannins and a savory finish.
91pts Wine Advocate
The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino sees a classic winemaking formula of 12 months in stainless steel, 36 months in large Slavonian oak casks and 12 months in bottle. It is that steady care, executed over five years, that gives this wine its smooth and tempered personality. The Brunello shows power and muscle with red fruit aromas, spice, dark smoke and cured meat. This is a wine with wide shoulders and a large frame. It offers moderate complexity but presents a united aromatic front. Drink this Brunello after 2017.
