Awards and/or Press Quotes
Robert Parker 93 Points
Wine Spectator 93 Points. 'Complex aromas and flavors of macerated cherry, plum, eucalyptus, tobacco and mineral are the hallmarks of this sweet yet structured Brunello. Balanced and approachable now, yet this should develop well. Fine length. Best from 2018 through 2030'
James Suckling 94 Points. 'A very ripe style with prune, berry and salted-nut aromas and flavors. Full body, savory intensity and a long, flavorful finish. Lots of juicy, fabulous fruit. Shows the greatness of the vineyard.'
