93 Points - Wine Spectator
"This solidly built red is marked by bright black currant, black cherry, rosemary, iron and tar flavors. Shows strong grip on the finish from the burly and lightly astringent tannins, all the while remaining fresh. Best from 2025 through 2042. 8,000 cases made." -BS, 6/30/22

90 Points - Vinous
"The 2017 Brunello di Montalcino wafts up with a savory bouquet of wild strawberries and herbs complemented by hints of dried citrus peels and nuances of animal musk. This is a cool-toned and well-muscled effort, displaying silky textures that are quickly firmed up by mineral-tinged red berries and fine tannins. It leaves the palate classically dry and youthfully clenched, yet also with a resonating inner sweetness, as rose tones and hints of spice slowly fade. This is a solid effort for the vintage, and it’s structured for the cellar." -EG, Nov/2021
