94+ Points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Tassi 2015 Brunello di Montalcino offers a beautiful level of purity and clarity that is really quite remarkable. The wine is polished and glossy with lively aromas of wild cherry, forest floor, licorice and pressed violets or lavender. You might also pick up faint tones of potting soil and savory spice, but it all comes in careful moderation. This wine ages in 20-hectoliter oak casks for 30 months. Tassi's Brunello maintains a medium-weight mouthfeel, however the natural freshness and integrated tannins give the wine a much larger footprint on all the senses."
93 points, Ian D’ Agata, Vinous: “Good full, deep red. Enticing, complex aromas of red cherry, brown spices, roasted coffee beans, potpourri, rose petal and licorice. Sweet and subtle, with wonderful perfumed inner-mouth intensity of flavors similar to the aromas. Here the tannins are much finer than those of the 2015 Brunello Tassi. The higher acidity provides better finishing lift and length. This outstanding wine is made from a selection of the best grapes grown in some of the highest vineyards the estate owns.” 03/20
96 points, James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com: "The aromas are insane with dried flowers and plums. Oyster shell. Such power and depth. Full body. Powerful and layered. Dense and long. Shows richness and structure. Try after 2021, but already gorgeous to drink." 10/19
95 Points, Raffaele Vecchione: "Warm and harmonious on the nose with notes of red plums, roasted meat and a light cocoa powder. Full body, silky tannins and a harmonious and well balanced finish. Delicious right away but better from 2021." 03/20
