Wine Advocate (92)- "A pure expression of Syrah, the Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona 2016 Sant'Antimo Fabius is an impressive expression of the grape. Syrah always tends to show opulent richness and succulence, and although you get that here, I'm also reminded of its Tuscan roots. It tends to be more compact and linear overall. This wine pulls in opposite directions, and that's what makes it most interesting. You will recognize those varietal characteristics for sure, but they are ultimately overridden by the wine's Tuscan identity. With 8,000 bottles made, this is a terrific value. "
James Suckling (92)- "Lots of currant, blackberry and flower aromas follow through to a full body with tar, meat, dark-chocolate and spice character. Always an outstanding syrah. Drink or hold."
Wine Spectator (90)- "Laced with cherry, strawberry and licorice flavors, this red is compact and almost chewy in texture, with a bright structure and a long, tobacco-tinged finish. Syrah. Drink now through 2020. 650 cases made."
