94 points Wine Spectator: "A serious, brooding red, with ripe cherry and strawberry flavors offsetting the beefy tannins. Loam, iron and almond notes chime in. Balanced and long overall. Best from 2023 through 2042."
96 points Decanter: "The 2015 is beautifully fragrant, almost exotic in character. Plump red fruit and sweet summer herbs fill the mouth but rather than being heavy, this is poised and transparent. Ample powdery tannins are fine and lead to a tangy marine finish."

Baby Brunello alert! From the outstanding 2016 vintage, a mind-bending deal in Montalcino Sangiovese, from the same vineyards that produce Lisini's Brunello and Rosso. What it lacks in sophistication (hardly a thing) it more, way more, than makes up for in value. It is drinking fantastically well right now, too.
