92 points, Eric Guido, Vinous: “An exotic bouquet of violets, crushed stone, sweet curry, cherries and hints of spiced tangerine emanates from the 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Mercatale. This is silky and pliant with a savory mix of wild berries, minerals and inner herbal tones. It finishes structured yet persistent and balanced, leaving hints of salted licorice and purple-tinged inner florals to linger on. I admit to being happy to see yet another single-vineyard Mercatale finding its way to my tasting table. Ridolfi did a fine job with their 2016 Riserva.” 11/21

94 points, James Suckling, “Black cherry, dried flower and burnt orange peel aromas lead to a full body that’s tight and in check with serious structure and length. Pleasant citrus undertones with some floral nuances at the end. Needs time to come together. Drink after 2024.” 12/21


100 Points, Luca Gardini, Gardini Notes: "Another great Riserva, which benefits from a year of great concentration of fruit. The product of the best parcel that carries out fermentation and maceration of two months, 45 months total in Slavonian oak. Sour cherries in spirits, touches of cinnamon and a finish with balsamic, eucalyptus notes. The mouthfeel is brackish-salty, ending with a fruity-balsamic return."
