94 Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a powerful expression of Sangiovese. The wine offers a lot more density, heft and alcohol (recorded at 15%) than many of its peers from this slightly cooler vintage. The wine is fleshed out and rich with black cherry, plum, spice, tar and cola. You are also treated to a moment of cherry sweetness that adds texture and density to the finish. This pretty Riserva sports broad shoulders for easy pairings with grilled or baked meat dishes. Only 2,600 bottles were produced." -ML, 7/31/19

94 Points - James Suckling
"There’s an alluringly complex feel to this with some dried spices and subtly smoky, woody notes across dried cherries. The palate has impressive, fresh cherries and blackcurrants with fine, elegant tannins. Nice build to the gently chalky finish. Drink or hold." -JS, Nov/2019

90 Points - Vinous
"Bright deep red. The enticing nose combines strawberry, gingerbread, menthol and mineral notes. At once sweet and savory on the palate, with harmonious, vibrant acidity extending the red fruit flavors on the long, soft, edge-free finish. I like this wine’s intriguing combination of volume and crispness, but it strikes me as being slightly less well delineated than other recent vintages of Piancornello." -IA, Mar/2019
