“Ripe berry and cherry aromas with hints of spices and cedar. Dried flowers, too. Full-bodied, dense and layered. Fantastic richness and depth. Long, long finish. Best ever. Try after 2022.” - James Suckling (Top 100 Wines)

“This deeply satisfying Brunello is super intense and age worthy, with layers upon layers of ripe red fruit, smoky oak, flowers and chocolate. The palate is delicious and fresh, with red and black cherries, tobacco, dried flowers, spices and olive tapenade. Wonderful acidity and firm tannins to balance well with rich pasta ragout or grilled meats. The most complete and complex Brunello we have tasted from this Estate. THE vintage to get for your cellar.” - California Wine Advisors
