The vineyards of Ridolfi lie in a section of Tuscany renowned for its wine and olives since the fifth century. They crafted this powerful Brunello from their estate fruit in the excellent growing season of 2010, which was characterized by a cool winter and spring with a warm, dry, and sunny autumn. After years in the bottle, the palate is beginning to show an array of mature flavors including leather, tobacco leaf, and forest floor that accent the still pronounced fresh berry and plum notes. Keep some of this on hand for those occasions when only a truly great wine will do.
 
94 Points - Wine Enthusiast!
"Alluring aromas of wild berry, leather, forest floor, Mediterranean brush and a balsamic note mingle in the glass. The tight palate doles out Morello cherry, crushed raspberry, baking spice and grilled herb alongside firm tannins and vibrant acidity. White pepper closes the finish. It's well balanced but needs time to develop complexity."

A juicy Brunello with stone, terracotta and plum character. Full body, chewy tannins and a fresh finish. Better in 2017 when the tannins soften.

Dark ruby with orange tinges. A little bit weedy and vegetal on the nose. Sweet fruit palate that lacks focus and with a rather medicinal note on the finish. (WS)
