Wine Spectator, April 2018
A ripe, macerated version, displaying plum, cherry, tobacco, earth and spice flavors. A beam of lively acidity in the middle elevates this. Ends with elegance, supporting tannins and fine length. Best from 2022... A ripe, macerated version, displaying plum, cherry, tobacco, earth and spice flavors. A beam of lively acidity in the middle elevates this. Ends with elegance, supporting tannins and fine length. Best from 2022 through 2036. From Italy. — B.S.

The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a beautifully saturated expression, with gorgeous density and presence. The bouquet is carefully considered in terms of its power and intensity (remember, this was a hot and dry vintage, and ripening was accelerated as a result). It shows lots of varietal character and definition without ever going overboard or feeling too soft or ripe. In fact, this Riserva is surprisingly tonic and firm deep down. It sweeps over the palate with sweet, plush and softly velvety waves of fruity flavors. - Monica Larner

Classically styled wine with a spicy and cedary nose as well as dried flowers and a little orange zest. The palate has a very smoothly rendered tannin bed and bright, succulent flavors of dried dark cherries. Pretty... Classically styled wine with a spicy and cedary nose as well as dried flowers and a little orange zest. The palate has a very smoothly rendered tannin bed and bright, succulent flavors of dried dark cherries. Pretty structure and depth. Try from 2022.

94+ Good full red. Clean, focused aromas and ripe flavors of strawberry, blood orange, peppery spices and underbrush. Dense, ripe and savory but virtually weightless, delivering outstanding energy, depth and inner-mouth... 94+ Good full red. Clean, focused aromas and ripe flavors of strawberry, blood orange, peppery spices and underbrush. Dense, ripe and savory but virtually weightless, delivering outstanding energy, depth and inner-mouth perfume. There's a lovely core of sweetness here, but the wine stands out today for its savoriness and youthful firmness. Finishes subtle and very long, displaying polished, suave tannins. This is yet another noteworthy 2012 Brunello Riserva. -- Ian D'Agata
