  • Score: 91 Vintage 2019 James Suckling Rather dusty and fruity with dark cherries and berries, as well as cedar. Medium body. Flavorful finish. Drink now. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 91 Vintage 2018 Vinous Media Deep red. Clean, fresh aromas of red fruit, tobacco and underbrush. Juicy and broad in scope with polished tannins that nicely let the ripe red fruit and herbal flavors flow on the rising long finish. A touch of alcohol-derived warmth becomes apparent on the back end, but this stays lively and fresh throughout. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 88 Vintage 2016 Wine Enthusiast Aromas of ripe dark berry, underbrush and cooking spice lead the nose. The fleshy palate offers black plum, licorice and vanilla alongside supple tannins. Drink through 2021. KERIN O’KEEFE Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 88 Vintage 2016 Wine Advocate This is a cheerfully fresh and zesty wine to drink on informal occasions. The 2016 Rosso di Montalcino (with 5,600 bottles made) opens to a pretty bouquet with cherry, raspberry and red currant. There are mild background hints of smoke and tar. It washes over the palate with simplicity and ease. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
