Tom Hyland, the well-known American wine critic and educator who writes for Forbes and Wine-Searcher, tasted a number of wines from Montalcino, including our 2016 Brunello di Montalcino and 2015 “P.56” Brunello di Montalcino Riserva.
In the Italian Wine Report, which he publishes for subscribers to his blog, http://learnitalianwines.wordpress.com he awarded 96 points to our 2015 Brunello Riserva, which revealed itself to be the best he tasted in this category, and 93 points to our Brunello di Montalcino 2016. This news makes us particularly happy and proud of all the hard work and care that we put into producing our wines, and adds to the list of excellent ratings they have obtained around the world.

Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2015 “Oliveto p. 56”

Deep ruby red; expressive aromas of balsamic, morel cherry, and currant. Medium-full with a beautifully defined mid-palate, good acidity, excellent persistence, and elegant, sleek tannins. Gorgeous varietal character, lengthy finish with precise harmony of fruit, tannins and acidity. While this could be enjoyed now with a bistecca fiorentina, this will improve with time, and should peak in 12-20 years. (96)

Brunello di Montalcino 2016

Deep ruby red; aromas of beautifully ripe morel cherry, a hint of date and cardamom. Medium-full with excellent concentration, big tannins, good acidity, and excellent persistence. Beautiful complexity, excellent richness in the mouth and in the finish as well as impressive typicity. This is young and displays notable harmony, but this needs
time; try again in 3-5 years, with peak in 12-15 years, perhaps longer. (93)
