From the Critics:

Wine Enthusiast (Kerin O’Keefe) - 88 POINTS

“Aromas of grilled herb, cracked peppercorn, eucalyptus and leather lead the nose. The round, ready palate offers crushed raspberry and star anise alongside supple tannins. Drink soon.”

Jancisrobinson.com (Walter Speller) - 5 Stars

“At the beginning of this year the Consorzio of Brunello di Montalcino, the Brunello producers' association, released a glowing report on the 2016 vintage and gave it its highest rating of five stars. These star ratings always tend to be on the positive side – perhaps not a surprise for an organisation that protects and promotes the region’s wines.”

New York Times (Eric Asimov)

“That’s where Rosso di Montalcino comes in. It requires only one year of aging before it can be released, which gives producers something to sell as they await the Brunello. Rosso is also a way of improving the Brunello. Instead of using younger vines or vines from lesser sites in the more expensive, prestigious Brunello, which might compromise its quality, they can go into the Rosso.”
