93 points James Suckling
"Offers more concentration on the nose with mostly notes of blackberry pie, plum cake and even some Christmas pudding. On the palate, the fruit is melded beautifully with chewy yet tight tannins and taut acidity. Great stuff for what it is."
90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2016 Rosso di Montalcino opens to a bright ruby color with purple highlights. The wine is youthful and bright in personality with a full load of plump cherry and ripe blackberry. You also get hints of spice, crushed mineral and balsam herb to round off the bouquet. The mouthfeel is rich, generous and nicely structured."
"Unusually dark ruby. Dark, malty and brooding nose with hints of sour cherry underneath. Very compact and tightly built. Real interest here but it will demand a little more patience. Rich layer of ripe tannins on the finish. Embryonic and brooding. 17+/20 points. (WS)"
