Wine Spectator 92 points This red shows fine clarity to the cherry, strawberry and rose aromas and flavors, with hints of tobacco and earth. Displays a firm backbone and an elegant profile overall. Fine length.

Wine Advocate 90 points  Brunello Il Marroneto offers a touch of ripeness in the form of cherry fruit, vanilla cream, cinnamon and caramel. Sharp acidity in the backdrop definitely puts all that soft roundness into perspective. The wine is etched, austere and firmly structured.

Vinous 92 points Il Marroneto's 2008 Brunello di Montalcino is distinguished by its silky tannins. Gracious and impeccably balanced, the 2008 floats across the palate with exquisite dark fruit, licorice, tobacco, spices and new leather. This medium-bodied Brunello is pure harmony and class. In other words, another terrific showing from Il Marroneto. Floral notes add lift on the finish.
