Incredibly powerful, bold, and complex, this brunello is bursting with bing and maraschino cherries, cassis, and just a hint of balsamic. Only made during exceptional years from a very special selection.

James Suckling

Enormous concentration, bright acidity and a stunning tannic structure make this wine stand head and shoulders above the crowd in the excellent 2012 vintage. Very dark fruits, but no hint of overripeness. Fine cocoa powder, licorice and black tea too. The complex and refined finish echoes down the valleys! Drink or hold.

95 WS

Wine Spectator

This is plush, boasting cherry, plum, leather, mineral and tobacco flavors. Vibrant and solidly built, with a long, expansive and spicy aftertaste. Needs some time, but this should come together nicely in three to five years. Best from 2022 through 2038.
