93 points from Decanter Magazine: "Bibbiano’s seven-hectare Capannino vineyard is planted with Sangiovese Grosso clones from Montalcino. It enjoys a warm southwest exposure on blue clay with Alberese schist. Dusty, dark and brooding on the nose, the 2018 hints at liquorice, leather and black cherry. The palate is sweeter and friendlier, with macerated berries and cinnamon enveloped in plush, layered tannins. Easygoing yet lively acidity gives a boost. Ageing is in a combination of concrete vats, French oak barrels, and Slavonian oak casks." (3/26/2021)

92 Points from Wine Spectator: "Harmony and grace are the hallmarks of this red, whose cherry, currant, tobacco, iron, sanguine and underbrush flavors are nicely integrated with the firm structure. Ends on a savory note, with an undercurrent of ripe fruit. Best from 2023 through 2032. 1,000 cases made, 300 cases imported." (10/115/2021)

91 Points Vinous: "The 2018 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna del Capannino is bright and expressive, with plenty of energy, and fine overall balance. Ripe red cherry, leather, spice, tobacco, incense and dried flowers all meld together effortlessly. The 2018 has quite a bit to offer." (9/2021)
