98 points James Suckling: "This is an impressive wine with blackberry, currant and spice. Full body, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. A rich and structured young Brunello."

94 Points Wine Enthusiast: "Alluring scents of ripe plum, tobacco, underbrush, fragrant blue flower and a whiff of new leather set the tone. The taut tightly-knit palate delivers juicy black cherry, crushed raspberry, licorice and baking spice framed in bright acidity and a backbone of assertive, fine-grained tannins."

17/20 points Jansis Robinson:"Deep ruby. Beautiful pure cherry and raspberry nose. Brooding richness of fruit..."

Weather

A particularly cold winter was followed by a breezy and rainy spring. In the summer the temperatures were close to ideal, punctuated by occasional rains which kept the plants at an optimal stress level. The ripening proceeded at a gentle pace, and low nighttime temperatures in late summer ensured a perfect expression of polyphenols in the grapes. Harvest began in early October, under great weather conditions, with sugars, acidity and polyphenols all having ripened to perfection
