James Suckling
Very intense aromas of ripe dark fruit with plums and cherries, intermingled with aged meat, warm stones and sweet, dried-wood nuances. The concentrated palate has a suave and plush core with tannins building in impressive layers to hold a long, flavorful finish. Drink or hold, flavorful finish.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Initially closed and shy, the 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva needs a little extra time in the glass before it starts to shine. The wine is made according to a very classic blueprint that prizes delicate primary fruit freshness, fully integrated tannins (nudged forward by Slavonian oak casks) and bright acidity. Fruit for this wine is sourced from 20-year-old vines that deliver the added extract and concentration worthy of a Riserva expression. This wine is impeccably balanced and radiant. It drinks beautifully straight out of the gate, however, it has the natural DNA to assure a graceful aging future.

Wine Spectator
A dense, muscular version, this red boasts cherry, currant, tobacco, iron and wild herb aromas and flavors. Bright and juicy, with fine balance and a refreshing finish. Best from 2022 through 2040.

Decanter
Pristine and fresh, with driving acidity: the Fuligni style expresses elegance above all, reflecting its cool-sited vineyards in the north of the region. This Riserva has understated but finely delineated aromas of flowers, raspberries and fresh hay, and is fragrant, light and dancing on the palate too, with fine-milled tannins.
