Falstaff Magazine (92)- "Luminous ruby red. Fragrant nose of fresh plums, juicy cherries and ripe raspberries, particularly inviting. Juicy and balanced with great freshness and concentrated fresh fruit, medium bodied, lots of drinking fun!"
Wine Advocate (90)- "This is a pure expression of Sangiovese from 15-year-old vines in the little-known Terre di Pisa appellation. The 2014 Terre di Pisa Sangiovese Il Nero offers aromas of pressed rose, wet earth and wild Mediterranean brush. The Tuscany signature here is very strong indeed. The wine offers a level of distinct structure and power that is not unlike a Brunello di Montalcino or a Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. It is aged in ten-year-old oak casks for further integration, definition and stability. Menthol-like freshness appears on the close."
Wine Spectator (90)- "Animal aromas give way to cherry, raspberry and white pepper flavors on the palate, backed by stiff tannins. The aftertaste is long, with firm grip. Decant. Drink now through 2024."
