''The 2016 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano shows elegantly etched aromas of dark fruit, plum, spice and bitter chocolate. The wine steps forward with mid- to full-weight intensity and medium length.'' 91 Points, Wine Advocate Magazine

''Fresh and bright Vino Nobile with black-cherry, orange-peel and citrus aromas and flavors. Medium body. Fine tannins..'' 91 Points, James Suckling

''This is soft, fruity and accessible, all of which make it a good choice for drinking now and over the next few years. Sweet floral and spice notes add nuance to red cherry/plum fruit in a lithe, gracious Vino Nobile with tons of immediacy and sheer appeal.'' 90 Points, Vinous Media 

A vivid ruby red in colour, the wine shows a fresh nose of violets, red currants, and blackberries, well fused with light notes of cinnamon. The palate is both sweetly fruited and mineral in character, and the notes of berry fruit first felt on the nose blend with a light spiciness of flavour. The wine is long and persistent on the finish and aftertaste.

'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
