James Suckling, 96 Points 

"Really pretty, sweet berries, cherries and fresh flowers on the nose. Orange peel, too. It’s medium-to full-bodied with very fine tannins that are polished and attractive and melt into the wine. Such purity and finesse. Drink or hold." 

Vinous, 95 Points 

"The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva struts its old-school stylings with a beguiling display of musky cherry and strawberry offset by damp earth tones, hints of cedar and mint. It’s unbelievably soft and silky in texture, ushering in ripe red berry fruits laced in saline-minerals and savory spice, with building inner florals toward the close. Formidable structure awaits on the finish, yet the 2015 Riserva manages to maintain freshness, coming across as both structured for the long haul but also with enough primary appeal to warrant checking in on today. It’s gorgeous. Tasted over the course of two days with consistent results. 2024 – 2034." 

Wine Spectator, 95 Points

Blood and iron mark the aromas of this powerful red, with ripe flavors of plum, black cherry and fruitcake. Very long, fresh and balanced, with the dense, dusty tannins softening and integrating with a few hours aeration. Best from 2025 through 2047.

Wine Enthusiast, 94 Points 

"Earthy and savory, this has rather funky aromas including new leather, truffle, violet and game. The aromas carry over to the full-bodied, succulent palate along with fleshy blackberry, baked plum and licorice. Enveloping, fine-grained tannins provide plenty of support. It has a rustic allure. Drink 2023–2030."
