About

94

"The Voliero 2016 Brunello di Montalcino opens to rich, fruity fiber with aromas of dark fruit, blackberry preserves, red brick and scorched earth. This is a saturated and accessible expression from Montalcino to enjoy in the near or medium-term with a nice steak and grilled porcino mushrooms. The grapes are fermented in steel with indigenous yeasts and aged in Slavonian oak. This is a 7,800-bottle production."

94 James Suckling - Jamessuckling.com

"Aromas of flowers, plums, cedar and violets follow through to a full body with firm, silky tannins that show plush fruit that’s pure and focused. Hints of orange peel, too. Fresh. Persistent at the end. Drink after 2023."

92 Eric Guido - Vinous Media

"The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino takes a more poised, feminine and refined approach to the vintage. Sweet roses, wild strawberry, leather and peppery herbs create a remarkably pretty display. The textures here are velvety; yet energy remains high, casting polished red berry fruits over a core of zesty acids and spice, while fine tannins build toward the close. It’s long yet heroically structured, with inner florals slowly tapering off. The 2016 Voliero will require a good amount of time to come fully into focus. "
