Vinous"Bright red with a pale rim. Knockout aromas and flavors of spicy red cherry, licorice, cedar and aromatic herbs. Clean, ripe and round, with saline nuances lingering nicely on the smooth but very lively finish. A classic Brunello from Voliero. -- Ian D'Agata"

James Suckling"Aromas of dried flowers and plums with hints of dust and tile. Orange peel, too. Full body, intense and powerful yet always reserved. Give it three or four years but this is already dynamic and fascinating. Publish Date: Monday, November 27, 2017"

Wine SpectatorAn alluring expression of soft cherry and raspberry fruit marks this sleek, focused red. Leather, earth and saline notes linger as this winds down, showing balance and length. Best from 2021 through 2033. 800 cases made.

Wine AdvocateSporting beautiful brightness and liveliness, the 2013 Brunello di Montalcino offers blackberry and cherry nuances enhanced by spice, leather and elegant balsam herb. These various characteristics reach a soothing sense of balance and delicate harmony that reflects the best assets of this undertone vintage.

Wine EnthusiastAromas of black-skinned fruit and baking spice emerge from the glass. The straightforward palate shows black plum, clove and pepper alongside round tannins. It's already hitting its ideal drinking window so enjoy soon.
