95 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2012
Medium red. Soil-inflected aromas of cherry, minerals, dried flowers and blood orange; an essence of sangiovese. Silky-sweet, plush and seamless, with pungent red cherry and strawberry fruit showing an almost liqueur-like sweetness without any impression of heaviness. Most impressive on the rising whiplash of a finish, which features sweet tannins, firm acidity and terrific lingering perfume. Not at all a powerhouse but this edge-free, rather Burgundian Brunello nevertheless stains the palate. I found this beauty hard to spit.
