Tasting Notes

A complex red with rose petals, violets, crushed stones and cherries follows through to a full body and chewy tannins that are poised and polished. Extremely long and intense. A top wine for the vintage. This needs three or four years, maybe more, to come together.

Score: 98James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, December 2018

This is opulent and powerful, offering black cherry, black currant, plum, leather, iron and tobacco flavors boosted by the racy acidity. Overall, this feels firm and complex, with a long finish. Not your typical style from the northern part of the Brunello di Montalcino zone, yet compelling. Best from 2022 through 2038. 650 cases made

Score: 96Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator, June 2018

Deep ruby-red. Toasty oak and vanilla complicate red cherry and underbrush aromas and flavors. Then rich, dense and concentrated, but lovely violet lift provides clarity and cut to the suave flavors of red cherry, red currant, flint and vanilla. Much deeper and richer than the 2013 Brunello from Valdicava, this beautiful wine finishes very long and ultra-smooth. It is the best wine I have ever had from this estate.

Score: 95+Ian d'Agata, vinous.com, April 2018

Mid ruby with bricky rim. Not much of a nose. Intense dark-fruit palate with a candied edge but with plenty of energy. Great balance and bags of chewy tannins that are effortlessly absorbed by the fruit. 2020-2030
