Critical Acclaim

SP90 Wine Spectator Jun 15, 2017

"This is spicy, complementing the cherry and leather flavors with vanilla and licorice details. Firms up, with a layer of tannins gripping the finish. Best from 2020 through 2033. 3,300 cases made." (90 pts.)

RP91 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 31st May 2017

"The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino offers bright intensity and an elegant approach. The bouquet is redolent of cassis, dried blackberry, toasted almond and pipe tobacco. There are sweet notes from the fruit and savory notes developed over the wine’s long aging period. Both aspects are nicely contrasted against each other. This wine should continue to evolve and will put on more weight with age." (91 pts.)

WS92 Wine & Spirits April 1, 2018

"Scents of jasmine and fresh herbs give way to vivid flavors of red cherry and sour plum. Those lifted aromas and the wine’s cool, mineral tannins are indicative of fruit grown in Montalcino’s northern sector, on the Montosoli hill. Decant it to allow those tannins to soften, but keep some in your glass to enjoy the aromatic development." (92 pts.)

Tuscany

There are few regions as picturesque as Italy's Tuscany. And there are few regions that produce finer wines, either. Tuscany is home to legendary wine regions Brunello di Montalcino and Chianti, among others, where the red wine grape Sangiovese is king. It's also home to "Super Tuscans," a category of Tuscan wines that don't officially fall within the Italian wine classification system.
