93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2012
Bright, dark red. Floral and peppery high notes lift aromas of raspberry, dried herbs, leather and earth on the complex, rather Burgundian nose. Saline, tactile, ripe and concentrated, with nuanced flavors of raspberry, minerals and musky underbrush. Finishes with ripe, chewy tannins and excellent rising length. A note of raspberry liqueur emerges at the end but the wine maintains its sappy character. Superb Brunello, and a worthy follow-up to the outstanding 2006.
