96 Points Suckling
A phenomenal Brunello di Montalcino from Tuscany and one of the top wines of the stellar 2011 vintage! Very little imported to the U.S. so hurry.
95 Points Wine Spectator: "This red is bright, with cherry, currant and Mediterranean scrub flavors accented by tar and tobacco. A beam of sweet ripe fruit is the focus, with the dense texture nicely integrated. The long finish is fresh and detailed, picking up graphite notes and a hint of blood orange. Best from 2021 through 2026."
96 Points James Suckling: "I love the subtle aromas of rose petal, dark fruit and perfume that follow through to a full body, with fine tannins and a beautiful finish. It's very fine and pretty. Savory and delicate. Such finesse here. Drink or hold."
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.
