Depicting Capri's Grotta Azzurra on the label, the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Filo di Seta is an oak-driven expression with elaborate tones of cinnamon, vanilla and roasted coffee bean that wrap thickly around fruity tones of blackberry and blackcurrant. The wine is soft and yielding with a rich embroidery of soft tannins and pulpy fruit extraction. There is that characteristic touch of bright acidity you get with Sangiovese. This pretty Brunello delivers all the qualities needed for medium and long-term drinking. It does need another two or three years of bottle aging however to fully flesh out.

This is marked by new oak, with vanilla, toast and smoke flavors accenting the core of plum. The terroir is obscured for now, despite the lingering fruit, acidity and well-integrated tannins. Best from 2018 through 2030. 500 cases made. — BS

This features aromas of oak, wood shop, vanilla and toast. The densely colored, dark palate offers prune, roasted coffee bean, anise and oak alongside assertive, extremely astringent tannins that leave the mouth feeling dried out.
