91 Points - Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino offers a classic interpretation of Sangiovese. The wine displays a dark crimson color with subtle ruby highlights. Dried berry, tobacco, pressed flower and pencil shavings are some of the principal components of the bouquet. You feel a pinch of tannic firmness and fresh acidity on the close. Villa le Prata makes 12,500 of this attractive base Brunello."
