James Suckling 100 points - This has depth and complexity, from the cherry and menthol notes to the earth and mineral elements. Tightly wound, with a core of sweet fruit offsetting the burly tannins. This red lingers on the finish, showing fine equilibrium and the potential to develop. Best from 2019 through 2035.-B.S.

"Crazy aromas of dried lemon, sea salt and cherry and delicate rose petal. Full body, ripe fruit with amazing acid tannin structure. It works from the inside out with your palate showing an amazing center palate and bright acidity and tannin structure. Goes on for minute. Redefines Brunello. Drink now but better in five years. The greatest wine ever from here." James Suckling 100 points Ranked #27 in Wine Spectator Top 100
