Antonio Galloni

95 Points, Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Brunello di Montalcino is deep, textured and impeccably balanced. Dark cherries, plums, tobacco, crushed rocks and spices blossom in the glass. Here, too, the overall sense of harmony is utterly captivating. A gorgeous wine, the 2008 stands out for its exceptional polish. The style is a bit deeper, richer and more layered than the Pelagrilli, but at the same time remains deeply marked by the prevalence of fruit from the northern side of Montalcino. In 2008 Pacenti lost about a third of his production from the south, which means this is a vintage in which the Brunello incorporated more fruit from the north than the south, roughly a 60/40 split. This is a fabulous effort in a vintage that proved to be full of challenges. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028." 6/13

James Suckling

93 Points, James Suckling: "A beautiful wine with lovely plum and cedar character. Full body, with velvety tannins and a chewy finish. Lots of cocoa powder too. This needs a year or two to soften." 2/13
