Wine Enthusiast (97)- "Red-berry, wild-rose, crushed mint and dark-spice aromas are front and center on this fragrant red. The full-bodied palate is concentrated but also boasts finesse, offering layers of raspberry jam, smooth licorice and tobacco alongside a backbone of enveloping, velvety tannins. You'll also detect the warmth of alcohol but the succulent fruit stands up to it. Drink 2024–2036."
Falstaff Magazine (96)- "Wow, iconic expresses beauty and precision of execution in the notes of hibiscus, flowering geraniums, currant and pomegranate. The secondary matrix is tinged with lemon blossom and mandarin peel. Medium-full body, soft and integrated tannins of excellent quality and a juicy and centered finish. Better from 2021."
Wine Advocate (95+)- "The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino (with 56,000 bottles made) shows bold cherry, spice, crushed stone and balsam herb that come together in seamless fashion. This estate has honed a unique style that becomes a common theme traced to each new vintage. I'd describe it as delicate but also succulent with a rich and almost pulpy quality of fruit. The wine is fueled by the golden light that hits this part of Tuscany in those last hours of the day. Here is a wine that shows spirit of place."
