Wine Advocate

94 points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate: “The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Vallocchio shows depth and a more sophisticated approach with ample textural richness and more evident spice and smoke from its oak aging. However, the style fundamentally embraces the same lithe and lifted elegance that we saw in Fanti's classic Brunello. The color saturation of the Vallocchio is a degree or two darker, and the bouquet reveals dark cherry, tilled earth, cola and smoked cedar wood. Give the wine a few more years in your cellar to flesh out.” 10/20

James Suckling

97 points, James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com: "What a nose of dried meat, tar, tobacco, dried boysenberries, red licorice and baking spices. Hearty tannins surround the full-bodied palate from every side, wringing bursting acidity from a full-throttle core of ripe, chewy fruit. The power and intensity are undeniable, but as you seep in the rich dried spices and died meat on the finish, you catch a glimpse of crystalline acidity through the looking glass. Drink in 2025." 10/19

International Wine Reviews

97 Points, Raffaele Vecchione, International Wine Review: "The 2015 'Vallocchio' Brunello di Montalcino is an absolutely stunning wine and is one of the most successful wines from the vintage. Brilliant ruby red color, with gorgeous aromatics of cherries, red plums, raspberries and wild myrtle. Full body, juicy this is structured with gorgeous tannins and a luminous finish. This is such an exciting wine that is excellent today, but should be even better with some short-term cellaring." 2/20
