95 Points - James Suckling:
"A rich Brunello with plenty of ripe-fruit, spice, porcini-mushroom and nutmeg character. Full body. Dense and flavorful. Ripe and polished tannins. Excellent structure and focus. Give this time to come together. Try after 2021." - (7 Sep, 2019)

91 Points - Vinous:
"Here I’m finding a withdrawn and coy expression, showing sour cherry and strawberry, before giving way to dried floral tones and dusty earth. , I find velvety textures, hosting masses of ripe, dark red fruits, along with sweet herbs, hints of mocha, and leather, as fine tannins mount toward the finale, clenching the senses with youthful grip."

90 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Cherry and plum fruit is underscored by dense, dusty tannins in this ripe, fluid red. Lively acidity keeps this well-defined, as iron, earth and sanguine accents emerge. Shows fine balance and length. Best from 2022 through 2038. 1,750 cases made, 900 cases imported." — BS (Jun 30, 2020)

Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Underbrush, camphor and new leather aromas mingle with a whiff of purple flower and tobacco. Reflecting the heat of the scorching vintage, the big broad palate is dominated by licorice and alcohol, with hints of stewed prune and vanilla in the background. While some may love the power, it's shy on fruit richness and freshness." - Kerin O’Keefe (7/1/2020)
