Wine Spectator 95 points Supple, laced with cherry, strawberry, floral and graphite flavors, this is elegant and harmonious, with a solid base of tannins for support. Still needs time to resolve itself, yet finds a nice balance in the end. Best from 2021 through 2036.Wine Advocate 92 points With only 3,000 bottles produced, the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigneto Poggio Doria is the top-shelf expression presented by the historic Tenute Silvio Nardi estate. This is a darkly concentrated and elaborate wine that displays some of the extra color and fleshiness that comes courtesy of the warmer growing conditions and dry summer of 2012. The aromas are broad, flat and powerful. More than nuanced complexity, the wine delivers a confident and direct dose of flavor intensity that is lasting and long.Decanter 96 points Still quite closed on the nose, but fresh and precise. It has a firm vertical palate with very fine tannins, a subtle mix of herbs and spices and lots of dark fruit waiting to come out. Long and concentrated finish. An elegant expression of the terroir.James Suckling 93 points A subtle and refined Brunello on the nose with flower and raspberry character. Medium to full body, ultra-fine tannins and a long and caressing finish. All in finesse and beauty. Drink now.
