About

93

Sweet, ripe black cherries on the nose with violets and dried rose petals. Full-bodied with firm, slightly austere tannins. Yet, it remains fresh and vivid. Turns lightly bitter on the finish with some burnt orange peel. Drink after 2022.

92 Eric Guido - Vinous Media

Pretty yet understated notes of strawberry, dried roses, violets, incense and cedar rise up from the 2016 Brunello di Montalcino. It’s a wine that impresses on it’s feminine grace and balance more than power, with soft textures and ripe red berry fruits which slowly evolve into salty minerals with a gentle tug of tannins toward the close. Hints of licorice and inner florals linger through the long and lightly structured finish. The symmetry here is spot-on, and I expect that the 2016 Scopone will gain some flesh and richness over a few years of cellaring.
