90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July 2010
Very deep ruby. Black fruits, plums macerated in alcohol, and licorice on the spicy nose. Rich but chunky, with deep, fat dark fruit flavors in need of more lift and definition. Finishes with smooth tannins, a strong suggestion of black pepper, and a rich, liqueur-like quality. A very good and serious wine, but rather anonymous as Brunello. This wine is not a Riserva, but rather is made from a selection of grapes from a one-hectare vineyard situated below the estate.
