Awards Received

James Suckling - 94 points
Incredible aromatics here with smoked meat, toffee, light prune, dried cherry and dried flower. Full body, soft, velvety tannins and a long, sexy finish. Wonderful depth and intensity. Big wine from a little producer. Try in 2017.

93 points
Villa Le Prata's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is laced with deep, musky scents, sweet red cherries, licorice, tobacco, kirsch and autumn leaves. Layered and resonant on the palate, the 2010 offers plenty of intrigue. This isn't the most refined or polished wine of the year, but there is something compelling in the wine's small imperfections. The slightly forward aromatics suggest the 2010 may not be especially ageworthy, yet there is quite a bit of density, tannin and overall depth that will help the wine keep for at least a decade, perhaps longer.

Wine Advocate - 92 scores
The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino shows smooth lines and a curvaceous figure. Soft aromas of cherry, Spanish cedar, licorice, dried rosemary and roasted almond rise from the bouquet. I tried this wine during two phases, once shortly after the bottle was opened and second time 24 hours later. The evolution and softening of the wine was remarkable and is very encouraging in terms of its potential longevity. Yet, you never lose sight of that characteristic Sangiovese tartness and freshness. Drink this elegant Brunello after 2017.
