    Vinous Media
    93 points, Eric Guido, Vinous: “The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino dazzles the senses with a display of citrus-tinged wild berries laced with sweet spices and minty herbs. It’s silky and elegant in the mouth, contrasted by a darker and more tart set of fruits, with mineral underpinnings adding further tension. Saturating fine tannins slow its momentum through the finale, clenching the palate with youthful poise, as hints of dried cherry and blackberry linger. The 2016 San Lorenzo will need some time to come into focus, yet it has all of the necessary components to mature into a classic.” 11/20
    Wine Enthusiast Notes
    92 points, Kerin O’Keefe, Wine Enthusiast: “Subtle aromas suggesting forest floor, new leather and baked plum form the nose on this bold, chewy red. The brawny, concentrated palate offers prune, dried cherry and licorice alongside enveloping, fine-grained tannins. You'll also notice the warmth of evident alcohol but the ripe fruit stands up to it. Drink 2023–2028.” 05/21
    100 points, Luca Gardini, Gardini Notes: “The 2016 vintage, too, was successful for this Brunello of San Lorenzo. On the nose, alcohol-infused marasca cherries, officinal note coming from pepper leaf with a balsamic closing. Crunchy and taut mouth. Salty tannins and, again, a balsamic taste reappears on the finish.” 10/20
