James Suckling’s “Classic” 95 point tasting notes: 
"Wonderfully aromatic and fresh with plum, flower and citrus character. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a delicious finish. So much finesse. Drink or hold.”

James Suckling on the 2012 vintage:
"Fans of Brunello di Montalcino are in for a treat with the 2012 vintage. I tasted about 100 wines in October in a blind tasting in Tuscany and was impressed with their beautiful aromas, vibrant fruit, lively acidity, and ultra-fine tannins. These sangioveses are much more precise and finer than the bolder and riper 2011s. They have more in common with the legendary 2010 vintage and are most like the 2004s, a harmonious and gorgeous year for Brunellos. Just to show how much better the 2012 vintage is, I rated 26 bottles 95 points or more compared to only eight 2011s. I’ve still got another 100 bottles of the 2012s to taste in January when I return to Tuscany. “I am really, really happy with the quality,” said one of Italy’s leading consulting enologist Carolo Ferrini, who also makes his own tiny and excellent quality Brunello, Giodo.” - James Suckling, Nov 2016
