Colour: Clear red, tinged with some pomegranate hues. Nose: Fruits and spices run after each other in a sweet conjunction conveyed by tobacco notes. Palate and wine and food pairing: Frank and potent, at the same time strong and full-bodied, it ends with a lingering sapidity. Pair with: game, lamb, grilled red meats and mature cheeses.

Wine AdvocateBeautifully saturated and dark, the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino offers a distinctively sophisticated personality. There's an air of nobility that is natural to Brunello, but that comes in limited supply in this warm vintage. You definitely get it here. The wine's bouquet offers a compelling medley of dark fruit tones that shift into savory spicy and balsam herb. Those automatic transitions are smooth and seamless. Another nice quality of the wine is that no one element overpowers or overshadows the other. It offers a great sense of balance. This wine has many cards to play and I am confident it will play them well over the next ten years of its evolution.

Wine SpectatorA fresh, compact style, with cherry, berry and almond fruit giving way to leather, tobacco and tar flavors. A little tough on the finish. Best from 2020 through 2028. 2,500 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastRipe dark-skinned berry, baking spice and Mediterranean brush aromas waft out of the glass. The full-bodied yet one-dimensional palate delivers wild cherry, black raspberry, star anise and salty mineral notes made bolder by alcohol warmth and big, velvety tannins. Drink 2019-2024.
