''The Castello Romitorio Brunello di Montalcino 2016 is a classic expression of the vintage, showing lots of ripe fruit, crushed mineral, herbal nuances and varietal-driven purity. This wine nails that sweet spot between elegance and power that is not easily achieved. It offers an expanded array of Sangiovese flavors with wild cherry, forest floor, crushed clove and medicinal herb, but it also shows plump density and a velvety texture.'' 95 Points, Monica Larner, Wine Advocate Magazine

''This takes its time opening up in the glass, yet patience is rewarded, as a mix of blackberry and cherry further blossoms, adding crushed stone minerality with hints of sage, lavender and violets. It’s silky and textural upon entry, yet it firms up quickly through a mix of vibrant acids and saturating fine tannin. However, there’s plenty of density to its primary fruits, feeling almost weighty in this youthful state yet perfectly balanced all the same. Savory herbs and spice linger along with tart red berries on the long, structured and dramatic finish.'' 95 Points, Eric Guido, Vinous Media

''This expression of Brunello di Montalcino is very pleasant in the main profile that is sweetly presented in the notes of pomegranate, rhubarb, bergamot and chamomile in bloom. Full body, velvety fine-grained tannins and a finish perfectly in line with the beauty of the fresh and Mediterranean vintage.'' 95 Points, International Wine Report

''Highlighted by notes of ripe cherries and rich blackberries, some light-coloured leather and fine spices in the aftertaste. Enters with a nice density on the palate, filling and elegant, with a fine melt and hearty red fruit, lies softly over the tongue, clingy and long.'' 93 Points, Falstaff Magazine, Brunello Trophy 2021

''There is something intoxicating and invigorating about this wine: a high nose of oak and fruit with accents of cherries, violets and pomegranates. There are also hints of earth and, with aging, shades of sage and soy. The tannins are deeply intertwined in the body, firm but fine, and give this wine an exceptional structure, a skeleton from which fruit, oak and aromas can fully express themselves. The wine unfolds slowly in the glass, becomes more sinuous and sensual in contact with the air, the light astringent of the tannins invites you to take other sips. Aging in the bottle brings pleasant tertiary notes of leather and herbs, persistence and aroma are lasting. This wine leaves its mark as soon as it is released, but becomes even more true to itself as it ages'' Anne Krebiehl, MW

''As good (or better) as the 2015s are, the 2016s have the potential to surpass them. A balanced growing season with no shock events produced a set of truly exceptional, highly promising wines. The 2016s are distinguished by their superb aromatic presence, silky tannins, layered fruit and fabulous sense of harmony.'' Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

''Tuscany remains the strongest beacon for the great wines of Italy around the world, and as a symbol for outstanding quality wines, it is only going to get stronger with the 2016 vintage.''James Suckling
