Critical acclaim

The Wine Advocate - "The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino shows a very distinct personality that separates it from its peers. There's a dark, mysterious and masculine side to this wine that is evident from first impact. The bouquet offers infinite layers of black fruit, plum, spice, cumin seed and crushed clove. You get a great sense of moist earth, tobacco and forest floor. Nothing is obvious. The wine keeps you guessing sip after sip. It would benefit from more years of cellar aging, but it's really not that far off from optimal drinking. "

James Suckling - "This is long and delicious with lovely cherry, chocolate and fresh walnut flavors. Linear yet open with persistence and joy. "
