About

95+

"Good full ruby-red. Smoky black cherry, violet and herbs on the nose, along with strong licorice and tobacco notes. Dense, plush and concentrated, but showing excellent cut and vinosity to the savory dark fruit, herb and tobacco flavors. Not especially blessed with easygoing sweetness of fruit, this fine-grained wine communicates a strong impression of extract and serious but polished tannins for real aging potential. This Riserva could not be any more different from owner Giacomo Bartolommei’s also beautiful 2013 Brunello (for comparison’s sake, the 2012 Riserva is both deeper and broader, but less juicy and fruity), and both wines will have hordes of fans."

95 Wine Spectator

"Ripe and juicy, boasting cherry, strawberry, floral and spice aromas and flavors. Good underlying structure keeps this balanced and the overall impression is one of harmony. Firm but not aggressive tannins add grip. Best from 2021 through 2035. 350 cases made."
