Luminous red. Delicately smoky and ripe on the nose, with deep raspberry and red cherry aromas complicated by notes of sandalwood, licorice, graphite and sweet pipe tobacco. Full and rich but also very bright, with red and dark berry flavors given life by juicy, harmonious acidity and very nicely framed by supple tannins. Closes long, fresh, and expansive, deeper and less sweet than the estate’s 2018 Rosso di Montalcino also released this year. Utterly delicious and already accessible, this boasts noteworthy elegance and freshness for such a big ripe wine. (Ian D'Agata, Vinous, April 2020)

Lithe and ethereal. Unlike any Brunello I've had. Almost redolent of nebbiolo in a perfect spot.

Good, maybe better than good. Lots of life ahead but you have to wonder about the $$$.

One of my favourite wines, ever. The 2007 in particular is beautiful. Has the effortless class of a Burgundy with sour cherries and terrific balance. The length and power is awesome. So much class. What a wine. Will live and live from a classic year. 96pts

Would never have guessed this wine is as young as it is...incredibly perfumed, notes of dried black cherries, orange peel, tea and violets

Perfumed, silky and amazingly complex. The top producer in the DOCG. Elegant and ridiculous!
