    Wine Advocate Notes
    94 Points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Castiglion del Bosco 2016 Brunello di Montalcino is a fruit-forward expression with soft cherry, blackberry, tilled earth and a touch of sweet spice. This wine is made in an especially accessible style that prizes ripe fruit and oak aging (in both barrique and botte). Fruit comes from a 52-hectare vineyard with galestro schist and clay. The tannins are more evident here compared to the 2015 vintage; however, this wine is almost ready to go with beef tagliata topped with porcini mushrooms. Production is 130,000 bottles." 11/20
    Vinous Media
    95 Points, Eric Guido, Vinous: "The 2016 Castiglion del Bosco Brunello di Montalcino really stands out with its vivid display of crushed raspberries, lavender and clove. Further depths are found with each swirl, adding mentholated herbs and flowery undergrowth. It’s dense and dark-fruited, enveloping the palate with notes of black cherry, plum, exotic savory spice and minerals. This is soothing and pliant in spite of the 2016’s youthful state, balancing brisk acids and fine tannins to create a push and pull of structural tension. The symmetry here is spellbinding, and everything is in the right place for a long and fruitful evolution over the next ten to fifteen years. Tasted twice with consistent results." 11/20
    James Suckling Notes
    99 points, James Suckling, “The complexity and beauty to this is really something with cherry, walnut, tobacco and cigar-box character. Sweet cherries. It’s full-bodied and deep with super intensity and power. Layered and beautiful. Really refined tannins. Some whole-berry fermentation gives this added character. Goes on for minutes. Try after 2025.” 11/20
    Wine Spectator Notes
    94 Points, Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator: "A wild and unbridled version, as much about the woodsy pine, wild herb and iron flavors as the brooding black cherry and blueberry fruit. Long and resonant, with muscular tannins and lively acidity lending support. Best from 2025 through 2042." 07/21
    96+ Luca Gardini, Gardini Notes: "Again, cru of Vigneto Capanna and schistose soils that produce an intense \nBrunello on the nose. Nuances of small dark fruits, blackberries, and blackcurrant dominating, licorice and officinal notes of fresh bay leaf. The mouth is both juicy and dense. Great persistence." 10/20
