    Critics

    Wine Advocate Notes
    94+ Points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This special selection of fruit from San Filippo is characterized by more intensity and concentration compared to the estate's classic Brunello. In this vintage, I also discovered a greater level of Sangiovese purity and direction, thanks to tight berry tones, dusty mineral, spice and balsam herb. To the palate, the 2016 Brunello di Montalcino le Lucére delivers succulent fruit and even a touch of sweetness, all powered by tannins, clearly driven by both the oak and the fruit itself. This wine ages in a combination of barrique, tonneau and botte grande for two years. This 14,000-bottle release will hit the market in January 202" 11/20
    Vinous Media
    94 Points, Eric Guido, Vinous: "The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Le Lucere takes things to a darker and more earthy place. Flowery undergrowth, wet stone and tobacco lift from the glass, taking on fresher notes of raspberry and sage over time. There’s a gorgeous interplay of velvety textures, salty minerals and lifting acidity in the mouth, as well as fine tannins which blend to create a classically balanced impression. Red fruits linger along with hints of licorice and minty herbs, while the structure of the 2016 Le Lucere takes a back seat through the finale. This is a very well constructed effort that should excel over the medium term." 11/20
    James Suckling Notes
    98 Points, James Suckling: "This is rich and very linear at the same time, with cherry, tile, walnut and light chocolate aromas. Some mahogany. Very complex. Full-bodied, yet tight and reserved with a very, very long finish. Really gorgeous. Try after 2025." 11/20
    Wine Spectator Notes
    98 Points, Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator: [Hot Wine - Insider Weekly] "This red is laden with balsamic aromas and flavors of juniper, rosemary and rose, plus black currant and raspberry fruit. There's an underlying mineral element, along with firm, mature tannins that enhance the overall elegance and finesse. Best from 2024 through 2045." 03/21

    98+ Points, Luca Gardini, Gardini Notes: "One of the smallest vineyard in Montalcino, but yet capable of achieving first-class results. Spicy and incisive: plum, pepper leaf, a touch of curry at the end. The mouthfeel is deep, fresh and enhanced by a good alcoholic richness. Iodized, thin and elegant tannins. "
