This shows wonderful precision and focus on the nose with dried flowers, crushed stones and dark-berry character. Full body, firm and chewy tannins and a long and intense finish. Some pine needles and drier spices on the finish. Needs time to soften. Try in 2021.

♦ Wine Advocate-Robert Parker 92 Points

The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Pinone delivers lots of Sangiovese typicity and is especially expressive of how the grape performs in a warm vintage. You get a hint of dried cherry and crème de cassis with bramble, toasted almond and fragrant rosemary twig. Yet there is substance, power and texture at the back that should contribute to the wine's smooth aging trajectory.

Deep red. Rather low-toned aromas of plum, mocha and herbs. A bit unforthcoming in the mouth, showing a restrained sweetness to the red fruit, herb and spice flavors. Finishes long with slightly dry-edged tannins. Fresh and compact, but doesn’t quite come alive today. (Ian D’Agata)

A refined and elegant Brunello with firm and silky tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Full and chewy. Exciting to taste. Drink in 2018.

The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Pinone is a delicious wine with a frank and upfront personality. This Brunello delivers lots of inner harmony and richness that is transmitted forward thanks to bright pulses of cherry fruit, toasted coffee bean, mocha and blackberry marmalade. The wine shows ample power, strength and elegance. The mouthfeel reveals a compact nature that is enhanced by impressive persistence.

The estate’s 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Pinone is dark, brooding in intense. Black cherry, plume, smoke, licorice, tobacco, game and dried herbs are front and center. This virile, brooding Brunello could use another year or two in bottle to soften, but it has enough pure depth to drink well for a number of years. Hints of orange peel and star anise add an exotic flair on the finish.

Tasted blind. Concentrated ruby with narrow orange rim. Reluctant nose hinting at round fruit. Elegant palate with fragrant strawberry fruit and layer of coating tannins. Classy, if tannic for the moment.

A sweet red cherry aroma is complicated by rose, marzipan and minerals. Bright, juicy and dense, with sharply delineated mineral, red cherry and berry flavours.Finishes clean and fresh, with echoing red berry and floral flavours of mesmerizing purity. A superb Brunello.

Leuchtendes, intensives Rubin-Granat. In der Nase von mittlerer Intensität, klar und frisch, nach reifen Kirschen, im Hintergrund Lakritze. Saftig im Ansatz, zeigt viel griffiges Tannin, ummantelt von süssem Schmelz, baut sich gut auf, im Finale salzig, guter Druck.

♦ Wine Enthusiast 2012 93 points

This wine offers loads of coffee and soft intensity, with ripe fruit, blackberry, rum cake and exotic spice. That extra roundness works well with this wine’s high adicity and tannic structure.

♦ Wine Advocate 04/2012 93 points

The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Pinone bursts from the glass with an exciting array of black cherries, tobacco, smoke, licorice and incense. Sweet notes of violets, mocha, licorice and spices are woven into the textured, expansive finish. This is an exotic, full-codied Brunello loaded with power and depth. I Loved it. The Riserva was aged for 36 months in Slavonian oak casks. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024

Blume nach Kräutern, nach Tabak, nach Zimt; im Mund saftig, die Gerbstoffe und die Säure gut eingebunden, endet lang auf Noten von Pflaumen und Holz. Solider Brunello, der perfekt ein Mahl begleitet. 2011 bis 2014.

♦ Wine Spectator 93 points

Aromas of crushed blackberry and mulberry lead to a full body, with soft, silky tannins and a fruity, spicy finish. Balanced and focused. A tiny producer to watch in the future. Best after 2012. 335 cases made. –JS
