Ratings & Reviews

89 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine (2014 Vintage):
"Rose, violet, wild berry and a whiff of forest floor lead the nose on this young, approachable red. The bright, savory palate offers morello cherry, raspberry and aromatic herb set against firm acidity and polished tannins. A blast of orange zest closes the finish." - Kerin O’Keefe (12/31/2016)

Antonio Galloni (2014 Vintage):
"The 2014 Rosso di Montalcino is a simple, fruity wine to drink now and over the next few years. An initial burst of sweet red fruit leads to short mid-palate and finish. The shortcomings of the vintage are impossible to escape." - Antonio Galloni (February 2016)
