Ratings & Reviews

96 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva PS is absolutely impressive, but with only 4,500 bottles made, it may not prove easy to locate. This precious expression of Sangiovese exhibits a gorgeous level of intensity and power, coupled by elegance and poise. The long presentation of aromas starts with black fruit and cherry confit and continues to crushed stone, toasted spice, cola and medicinal herb. The wine's texture sticks firmly to the palate. This Brunello ages in French oak for two years." - Monica Larner (28th Feb 2018)

95 Points - Wine Spectator:
"A modern style, exuding coffee, vanilla, cherry and tobacco flavors. Vibrant, offering grip and picking up mineral accents as this winds down on the finish. An elegant, minerally red under the oak. Best from 2021 through 2035. 375 cases made, 25 cases imported." - BS (Jun 30, 2018)

94 Points - Vinous Media:
"Deep red. Smoky, torrefacted notes complicate bright red cherry and mineral aromas on the enticing nose. Then rich, ripe and round in the mouth, offering a generous, broad mouthfeel and a captivating multilayered quality to the flavors of red fruit, blood orange and underbrush. The finish is long and supple. " - Ian D'Agata (Apr 2018)

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"Underbrush, sunbaked earth, French oak, coconut and balsamic aromas lead pave the way on this full-bodied red. Concentrated and structured, the firm palate delivers dried Marasca cherry, ripe plum, licorice and coffee bean alongside close-grained, rather astringent tannins that clench the finish. Give this a few years to unfurl." -Kerin O'Keefe (5/1/2018)
