94 Points from Wine & Spirits Magazine: "A cool mineral tone runs through this wine like a silver streak, energizing the vivid red- and black-cherry flavors and trailing notes of licorice, tarragon and subtle black spice. Despite the warm and dry 2017 vintage, the wine’s aromatics are precise and lifted, revealing scents of rose petal and violet with exposure to air. The flavors gain energy over several days while maintaining that firm minerality that makes this wine so appealing." (04/22)

93 points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A rigid, tightly-wound version, this red features a core of cherry, raspberry, black currant, almond and iron aromas and flavors. Needs time, yet everything feels like they are in the right proportions. Finishes fresh, spicy and long. Best from 2025 through 2042. 10,000 cases made, 3,000 cases imported." (6/31/2022)

92 points Vinous: "The 2017 Brunello di Montalcino is incredibly exotic in both spice and floral tones, and an intense wave of cherry and raspberry preserves mixes with hints of tangerine and cocoa that pull you close. This is so deep and fleshy yet energetic in feel, boasting a core of bright acidity that enlivens the experience and motivates the tart wild berries, zesty citrus and inner rose tones. Light tannins linger, yet the 2017 remains juicy and fun, delivering gobs of immediate pleasure though lasting notes of red currant, licorice and clove. Sadly, there will be no Vigna del Suolo from 2017, as all of that juice was added to bolster the Brunello. Even so, production was down by 35%." (11/2021)

92 Points from Wine Spectator: "A rigid, tightly-wound version, this red features a core of cherry, raspberry, black currant, almond and iron aromas and flavors. Needs time, yet everything feels like they are in the right proportions. Finishes fresh, spicy and long. Best from 2025 through 2042. 10,000 cases made, 3,000 cases imported." (6/30/2022)

92 Points from Wine Enthusiast Magazine: "Scents of crushed mint, woodland berries and new leather come to the forefront along with a whiff of violet. The full-bodied palate features cherry marinated in spirits, licorice and a hint of coffee bean alongside firm, refined tannins. Drink 2024–2029." (4/1/2022)
