96

Pressed rose petal, woodland berry, new leather and sun-warmed hay are just some of the aromas you’ll find on this beautiful wine. Full-bodied and enveloping, the elegant palate features dried cherry, strawberry compote, licorice and crushed mint framed in polished tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced. Drink through 2031.

96 International Wine Report

Fascinating and decidedly terse in the primary profile showing notes of withered red flowers, red prunes, salted caramel and mixed citrus fruit peel. Medium to full bodied, extremely smooth tannins, pleasurable in the delicate sip and a smooth finale, well distended in length. Better from 2023.

The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna Montosoli captivates and pulls you close with its bouquet of dried citrus peels, sour cherry, rose, crushed rocks and hints of animal musk. This dark beauty continues to impress on the palate, where the silkiest of textures washes across the senses, delivering ripe red berries complemented by vibrant acidity and saline-mineral tones. Energy remains high throughout the finale, where sweet tannins create a classically dry foundation under an air of licorice, violet florals and hints of tobacco. Casanuova delle Cerbaie nailed it with their totally classic 2016 Riserva. Well done.
