''The 2016 is full bodied and luxurious in texture with the grapes natural acidity and tannins playing a subtle role keeping things vivid and fresh, lifting the dark and rich flavors up and provides a solid base structure in this Tuscan classic. It is opulently layered in the mouth with black cherry, strawberry, plum and mulberry fruits along with grilled fennel, sandalwood, dried lavender, delicate mineral tones and cedary wood. There is a lot to love here and it is a really good value for what you get, in fact this Rosso really compares well with many higher end true Brunello(s), it stands out and delivers a very worthy performance.'' 92 Points, (USA)

''Donatella Cinelli Colombini, one the star producers of Montalcino makes an engaging Rosso. The 2016 is particularly appealing because it delivers dark cherry-like fruitiness and spice in a readily accessible form. It has good depth and length.'' 91 Points, Michael Apstein

''Shows more richness on the nose than most with dried red plums, candied strawberries and nutmeg. Full body, a fine line of acidity and a medium-long finish.'' 91 Points, James Suckling

'As good (or better) as the 2015s are, the 2016s have the potential to surpass them. A balanced growing season with no shock events produced a set of truly exceptional, highly promising wines. The 2016s are distinguished by their superb aromatic presence, silky tannins, layered fruit and fabulous sense of harmony.'' Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

''Tuscany remains the strongest beacon for the great wines of Italy around the world, and as a symbol for outstanding quality wines, it is only going to get stronger with the 2016 vintage.''James Suckling
