93 Points, Eric Guido, Vinous: "The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino shows mineral-laced black cherries with earth tones and hints of tanned leather. It’s soft in texture with a polished display of ripe berries and savory spice, as zesty acids create a juicy expression while slow-mounting tannins collect upon the senses. This turns dry and structured toward the finale, yet with the balance for a long and steady evolution in the cellar. This is really very nice." 11/20
94 Points, James Suckling: "Plum, ripe-berry and floral aromas with hints of sandalwood and fresh mushrooms. It’s full-bodied with firm, ripe tannins and a fresh, crushed-stone finish. A little timid now. Give it another two or three years. Try after 2023." 11/20
96 Points, Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator: "Ripe, sweet cherry and raspberry fruit are accented by floral, mineral and wild herbs in this alluring red. A backbone of dense, dusty tannins provides support, and the ripe fruit returns on the savory finish. Excellent length. Best from 2023 through 2043." 03/21
94 Points, Luca Gardini, Gardini Notes: "Great Brunello produced by this historic label of Montalcino, now owned by Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini. Small dark fruits, violet petals with hints of carob, and closing on balsamic notes. In the mouth, it is taut, savory with beautiful persistence."
