Wine Enthusiast 96 - Beautifully balanced, this opens with alluring scents of wild berry, rose, baking spice and whiffs of chopped herb. Seamlessly combining ripe fruit and the firm's trademark finesse, the bright elegantly structured palate delivers juicy wild cherry, crushed raspberry, white pepper and a hint of black tea framed in polished tannins and fresh acidity. It's already tempting but the best is yet to come. Drink 2021–2031.
Vinous 94 - Dark red. Musky nuances give way to brighter red fruit, licorice and herbal aromas. Rich and dense, with flavors of red cherry and minerals lifted by hints of orange peel and bergamot, not to mention noteworthy but harmonious acidity. Finishes long with youthfully chewy tannins and lingering hints of violet.
Wine Spectator 93 - A supple, harmonious red, showing some softening, with cherry, leather and wild herb flavors well-integrated into the lacy structure. Reveals a lingering essence of sweet fruit, black tea and graphite on the finish.
Wine Advocate 92 - The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva makes a bold and more articulate statement … That extra year of aging has contributed to more powerful aromas of dark fruit, balsam herb and spice. There is extra fiber and texture here overall. This Riserva shows a higher degree of density and a tighter embroidery with dark fruit, spice and tobacco. … if there's one thing the wines of Biondi-Santi have demonstrated over the years, it is that they get better with time. Set this bottle aside in your cellar.
Brilliant ruby red in color with a signature citrus bark notes on the nose. Generous fruit, black pepper and hints of spice are interwoven, seamlessly integrated with the wine’s tannic frame. A wine with incredible balance and structure. Firm tannins will slowly open leading to a wine of depth, complexity and harmony. Very long, lingering finish.
