The estate offers elegant yet profound wines epitomised by the 2016 vintage. It opens gradually with scents of violet, lilac, truffle and liquorice. Midweight and fluid, with finessed but firm tannins and brisk acidity, this finishes long with savoury tea notes. A magnificent reminder that Brunello doesn’t need to be a powerhouse to be ageworthy. Drinking Window 2024 - 2038

Full-bodied and very tight with super refined, polished tannins and a long, long finish. Love the berry, cherry and dried-flower undertones. Really classic style. Best ever. Drink after 2025.

It’s a model of purity, hosting soft textures over a feminine framework of brisk acids and salty minerals, with tart red fruits contrasted by sour citrus. Violet-tinged florals form along with a hint of plum and licorice, as fine tannins slowly dry out the expression. Readers in search of traditionally-styled yet wonderfully refined and age-worthy Brunello owe it to themselves to seek out the 2016 Padelletti. -- Eric Guido

The medium-bodied palate is both firm and elegant, featuring juicy red cherry, cranberry and licorice before finishing on a coffee note. Tight, fine-grained tannins and bright acidity keep it fresh and balanced. Drink 2024–2036. - Kerin O’Keefe

Wine Spectator, July 2021
Aromatic with cherry, plum and smoke notes, this supple red adds mineral and tobacco accents to the core of fruit flavors. Firm and lively, with iron and earth details lingering on the finish. Best from 2023 through 2040...   Aromatic with cherry, plum and smoke notes, this supple red adds mineral and tobacco accents to the core of fruit flavors.
