Wine Advocate

93 Points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "La Colombina's 2016 Brunello di Montalcino opens to a dark and sultry appearance, followed by aromas of blackberry, plum, and dark cherry. Those dark fruit flavors are not heavy, and instead, they show the lightness and lifted aromatic intensity that comes so uniquely to the Sangiovese grape, especially in a classic vintage such as this. Spice, tar, and campfire ash come up on the finish. This is a well-priced 11,000-bottle release for medium-term drinking." 11/20

Vinous Media

93 Points, Eric Guido, Vinous: "The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino is dark, rich, and seductive from the first tilt of the glass. Here I find a mix of black cherry and crushed plums complemented by notes of cinnamon, clove, and violet florals. This is silky yet savory, with a dense core of tart blackberry neatly wrapped in a web of salty minerals and fine tannins. In spite of its structure and weight, 2016 from La Colombina maintains freshness and energy throughout, sometimes seeming more like food than wine through a sense of umami that starts on the palate and lingers throughout the long finish." 11/20

James Suckling

92 Points, James Suckling: "A pretty, opulent and fruity red, though in a delicate way, with fine, fresh tannins. It’s medium-bodied with freshness and finesse. Lovely to drink now, but better in two or three years. Try after 2022."
