About

95

"Here is a dense and meaty Tusan red that flaunts its immediate power, structure and intensity. The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva gli Angeli is robust and deep thanks to a generous offering of dark fruit, spice and tar-like aromas. Fruit is carefully selected for this wine, and the grapes are fermented in stainless steel. Post fermentation, the wine goes into large Slavonian oak casks for four years. The finish is soft and supple with sweet berry flavors. This wine has made an impressive jump forward in this vintage."

95 Ian Dagata - Vinous Media

"Bright medium ruby. Very clean and fresh aromas and flavors of red currant, cherry pit, flowers and blood orange jelly. Bright, juicy and very light on its feet, offering superb vinosity and clarity of flavor, this conveys an impression of real underlying density and a multilayered mouthfeel. A knockout wine of outstanding energy and class, finishing with polished tannins, uncanny sweetness and lovely subtle persistence, not to mention outstanding balance (it hides its 14.5% alcohol very well)."

94 Wine Enthusiast

"Pipe tobacco, blue flower, plum and dark culinary spice are some of the aromas you'll find on this full-bodied red. The aromas carry over to the firmly structured palate along with dried cherry, orange zest and star anise. Firm fine-grained tannins provide the backbone. Drink from 2022 through 2032."

93 James Suckling - Jamessuckling.com

"Striking autumnal sous bois type character here. This is a remarkably suave and supple Brunello Riserva that stands out in the crowd in spite of the classic red fruit character. A silky long finish. Drink or hold."

92 Wine Spectator

"This is well-marked by new oak, with vanilla and toast aromas and flavors covering the sweet berry and subtle character for now. Leather, tobacco and mineral notes emerge on the long finish. Best from 2021 through 2032. 750 cases made. -BS"
