James SucklingAmazing young Brunello with superb concentration and depth. Full body, chewy yet polished tannins and mineral, oyster shell and blueberry flavors. Goes on for minutes. Leave it until 2020 to open. A triumph.

Wine SpectatorThe sweet, ripe fruit has an immediate impact, offering notes of cherry, strawberry and currant, followed by light oak spice, leather, tobacco and earth accents. The tannins peek through on the finish, but overall this is balanced and long. So harmonious that you may want to enjoy now, but this should only get better with time. Best from 2017 through 2033. 175 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Le Lucére is a bold and powerful expression that is generous in terms of its aromatic delivery. The wine's appearance is dark and beautifully saturated with bright rays of ruby and garnet within. The bouquet reveals extra portions of dark fruit, plum, spice and tobacco. The oak spice is not fully integrated and the wine would benefit from three to five more years of cellar aging to see if it ever does. Given the plump and rich nature of the fruit, I don't expect this to be too much of a problem. Stylistically, this is a wood-heavy Brunello and will appeal to those who like more opulent expressions of Sangiovese. It does need more aging time however. That is for sure.
