Ven­er­a­ble Vines

A new stan­dard for Napa Val­ley, a pres­ti­gious port, beau­ti­ful Brunel­los and the Great Wines of Bordeaux event make James Suck­ling’s monthly news round-up The Best and Bright­est

Hong Kong Tatler - - Life -

The 2010 Brunello di Mon­tal­cino wines were re­leased in Jan­uary and are some of the hottest on the mar­ket at present. The vin­tage is a new bench­mark for Tus­cany’s most fa­mous red, sur­pass­ing the qual­ity of the ac­claimed 1997. The 2010 grape-grow­ing sea­son was ex­tremely long and har­mo­nious, which pro­duced wines with won­der­ful struc­ture for age­ing yet bright fruit, and a savoury char­ac­ter that makes them mouth-wa­ter­ingly good to drink now. James Suck­ling rated five of th­ese wines a per­fect 100 points.
