"Revealing dark fruit and oak spice, the 2018 Brunello di Montalcino leans toward the bolder and bulkier side of the Brunello spectrum. The wine is open-knit and accessible and perhaps further along its evolution than one would like to see in a wine hitting the market now. However, this is a trend I see across the 2018 vintage. The finish reverts to a more gentle side with polished tannins."

"A juicy style for the vintage, boasting cherry, raspberry, floral, graphite and spice flavors. Balanced and lively, with bright acidity and refined tannins for support. Shows fine length. Best from 2025 through 2042."
Wine Spectator - 93

"Aromas of fresh raspberries, sour cherries, lemons, walnuts and vanilla beans. It’s succulent and flavorful with a medium body and creamy tannins. Tangy fruit turns to creamy chocolate. Lovely drinkability. Drink now or hold."
