Wine Advocate

92 points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate: "Il Palazzone's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino shows a steady bouquet that is equally represented by dried fruit aromas, medicinal herb and crushed stone or dark mineral. The wine imparts a lean to medium-weight texture, and there is a point of bitterness that recalls sour cherry or crispy plum. That sourness is for now reinforced by the wine's young tannins, and that general rawness should subside as it continues its evolution in the bottle. Some 10,866 bottles were filled (not counting 250 magnums), and the wine was released in January 2020." 01/20

James Suckling

95 Points, James Suckling,"Enticing combination of reserved freshness and bewitching ripeness here. Dried rose petals, stems, black tea, orange peel, steak tartare and tobacco simmer at the surface. The full-bodied palate has a complete but never overbearing feel, in that the tannins are fine-grained and precise, tracing an elegant positioning of subtle berries and cherries. Suave and polished. Drink now." 11/19.

International Wine Reviews

92 Points, Raffaele Vecchione, International Wine Report: "The 2015 Il Palazzone Brunello di Montalcino is a lovely showing in this vintage. It opens to precise aromatics with notes of red flowers, wild strawberries, currants and sweet licorice that all take shape in the glass. On the palate this is medium-to full-bodied, structured with soft, nicely extracted tannins and a finish which is focused on the quality of fruits. While this offers immediate pleasure, it also has the potential to evolve for over a decade." 03/20
