About Our Ratings

Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2010 Manapetra, La Lecciaia
Single vineyard Brunello di Montalcinos are the most select and rare of this elite breed of Italian wines. This is a very rare single vineyard Riserva from the accomplished Fattoria la Lecciaia. This hillside vineyard is selected because it receives the best exposure of all the vineyards on the estate and consistently produces the highest quality fruit. In the amazing 2010 vintage this was so true that they were able to bottle a regular Brunello Manapetra and also this Riserva. The wine was carefully vinified and aged in large oak casks for more than two years. This impressive wine shows why Brunello is Italy's most prestigious appellation. It is a deeply layered and complex wine with intermingling cherry, toasted almond, tobacco and leather nuances, an outstanding success. James Suckling scored this wine 96 points and said "Very tight and refined with beautiful spicy, dark fruit and dried mushroom character. Full and savory. Some iodine and salt character. Drink or hold." And what's truly amazing about this wine is the price!

how long before i should drink the wine?
A shopper on Oct 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I actually found this wine quite austere for the 2010 vintage. I would say 2022-2027 is a good window.
I am pretty sure that Reserva's must spend at lease one year in small oak casks before billing. Your description only mentions two years in large oak. Please clarify?
THOMAS H on May 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Great question! Cask size is not specified for the Riserva requirements and, while itís not unheard of, it is not common to see small casks used for Brunello. The minimum aging requirements for Riserva Brunello are 2 years in oak and 6 months in bottle. Cheers!
what is a "large oak cask "? versus a regular cask size...
Jeanne L on Mar 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi Jeanne, great question! A large oak cask is 20 to 80 hectoliters (about 500 gallons to 2,000 gallons) while a regular cask is just a little over 2 hectoliters (60 gallons). Hope that clears it up, cheers!
