James Suckling 95 points - So much dried lemon and orange peel character here. Wet leaf, wet earth, stone and lightly smoked meat. Full body, integrated tannins and a savory and tangy finish. Fleshy and yummy. Fabulous deal here. Drink or hold on release.  (Dec 2014)

Wine Spectator 93 points - Cigar box and leather aromas are balanced by strawberry and cherry notes at the core. There is a vibrant, refreshing quality here, with a long, complex aftertaste. Best from 2019 through 2033. 12,500 cases made.-BS  (Jun 30 2015)

Vinous 93 points - Bright red cherries, plums, smoke, tobacco, flowers, cedar and spices are all beautifully delineated in the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino. Vibrant and lifted throughout, the 2010 captures the freshness of the vintage in spades. Already soft and accessible, the 2010 can be enjoyed now or cellared for a decade or so.  (Feb 2015)

Wine Advocate 92 points - Caparzo’s 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a lush and voluptuous wine with soft cherry aromas at the front of spice, dark chocolate and toasted almond. The wine is more approachable in style with a drinking window that can offer pleasure to those too impatient to wait. The tannins are also more evolved and integrated for a more gentle approach. The finish is marked by an evident touch of vanilla from the oak. (Feb 2015)
