James Suckling 94 - Plenty of dried cherry and strawberry aromas here with some orange peel. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a savory, spicy and pepper undertone. Gorgeous and complex.
Wine Enthusiast 94 - Here's an earthy wine that opens with aromas of scorched earth, leather, truffle, raspberry compote and a note of cured meat. The chewy palate offers mature Morello cherry, grilled herb, coffee, clove and anise while firm, ripe tannins provide the framework. A tobacco note closes the finish. Drink 2018–2028.
Wine Spectator 94 - Cherry, leather, licorice and hints of grilled beef mark this juicy, expressive red. Tension emerges as this plays out on the finish, revealing an understated intensity. Fine length. Best from 2018 through 2032.
Wine Advocate 93 - The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a silky and smooth rendition that puts a significant premium on elegance. The wine is bursting with the power and the deeply etched character of the vintage, but it also reveals a softer and less obvious side that comes forth thanks to the subtle and seamless integration of fruit. It shows beautiful textural finesse.
