96 Points Suckling
A phenomenal Brunello di Montalcino from Tuscany and one of the top wines of the stellar 2012 vintage! Very little imported to the U.S. so hurry.
95 Points Robert Parker: "Refined, complex nose of cranberry and crushed stones embellished by a leathery note. Medium-to-full in the mouth with layered red fruit and finely-poised tannins; long and mineral, with more to come."
Winemaker Tasting Notes: Extremely dark and concentrated. Open, very persistent and clean with wonderful aromas of blackberries, raspberries, coffee, spices and vanilla. Rich, powerful, extremely concentrated yet elegant and velvety. The silky and ripe tannins make it particularly smooth to the palate. Loads of plum, dark cherry and licorice and a very very long finish. A wine that will keep and further improve for many years.
