95 points Decanter
"Near Sant'Angelo in Colle, on the road that leads to Castelnuovo dell’Abate, Lisini is within the zone of Sesta. The estate preference is to pick quite late, and they are one of the last in the area to harvest. The relative ripeness and concentration is evident in 2018 but not at the expense of balance. In fact, Lisini’s Brunello is one of the vintage’s more exciting and profound wines. It opens slowly with hints of chestnut and smoke, then discloses dark cherry, iron and fragrant moist soil. Tannins are tightly stitched yet malleable, giving a satisfying mouthful. Finishes with a salty tang and mineral drive."

94 points Wine Spectator
"Rich and deep, with base notes of plum and loamy earth offsetting cherry, hibiscus and eucalyptus flavors. Dense, with muscular tannins and lively acidity lending support. The long aftertaste evokes earth and Mediterranean brush. Best from 2026 through 2045."

Jancis Robinson
"Deep, lustrous ruby with orange tinges. Very closed and backward on the nose. Cherry with the merest suggestion of dried fruit on the palate, but much more compelling than it sounds. Long yet still subdued on the finish and with finely grained tannins; only at the very end revealing complex depth. Skilfully made and more to come. 17.5/20 points. (WS)"

Vinous Reverie Notes
Lisini is one of Montalcino’s historic, reference-point estates.” ~ Antonio Galloni, Vinous
Boutique winery Lisini makes quintessential Brunellos that perfectly demonstrate their exclusively Sangiovese origins. Given the cult status and high demand of Lisini Brunellos, these bottlings easily put to rest the idea that what people really want is a little Merlot blended into their Brunellos. Rather than overoak, overextract, or overripen, the firm prefers to craft its classic offerings with the denominations tried and true winemaking methods.’’ ~ Kerin O’Keefe, Wine Enthusiast
One of the most classico of classic Brunello: Lisini was one of the original founders of the Consorzio of Brunello in the 1967 back before Brunello was BRUNELLO and Montalcino was MONTALCINO! 100% Sangiovese from the estate’s massal selection. Vineyards range in elevation from 300 to 350 meters above sea level. Vinification is traditional, in glass-lined cement tanks with skin contact for 20-26 days. The wine is then transferred to 20-52 hectoliter casks for 42 months, followed by 6 to 8 months of bottle age prior to release. 3,000 cases are produced on average each year.
