AWARDS AND REVIEWS

#1 in James Suckling’s 2012 Brunellos

Complex aromas of dried figs, dark fruits and hints of walnuts and dried meat. Full body, dense and polished palate. Velvety and poised tannins and a flavorful finish. Yet always refined and beautiful. You want to drink it now and can, but it has a beautiful future.

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.

 

90 points, Wine Spectator
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
