Wine SpectatorOffers plenty of underbrush, eucalyptus, juniper and sage flavors, with animal and mineral elements. The texture is smooth, balanced by lively yet refined acidity and firm tannins at the end. Best from 2018 through 2030. 2,500 cases made.

Wine AdvocateHere is a wine that flaunts its warm vintage characteristics with confidence. The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is soft, richly layered and enormously plump from the start. It literally bursts out of the glass. The bouquet is redolent of cherry, pressed rose petal, spice and chocolate dustings. The complexity does not reach the high levels of previous vintages, but what the wine does offer is a fundamentally direct and opulent style that can be enjoyed in the near term.

Monica Larner, March 2016
