91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This vineyard-select Brunello is tight and bright with an attractive mineral component that rides behind overt aromas of cherry, cola and white chocolate. The mouthfeel is characterized by a smoky-mesquite note and the wine is very persistent in the mouth." (06/09)
90 points Wine Spectator: "Bright and fruity aromas of strawberries and raspberries follow through to a full body, with firm tannins and a racy, clean finish. Tight still. Give this racy wine time to develop more in the bottle. Best after 2011."
