Monica Larner of Robert Parker's Wine Advocate also rated the wine at 94 points, offering a detailed analysis on December 15, 2023. She notes the wine's technical qualifications for Rosso di Montalcino but emphasizes its aspirations to a higher status, proudly wearing its IGT Toscana appellation. Larner explains that the grapes come from eight-year-old vines and that the wine is aged in amphorae and oak, resulting in "terrific volume" and "lots of bright primary fruit with cherry, fresh cranberry, incense, and spice." The wine benefits from the cooling forests surrounding the eastern part of the appellation, giving it a "freshness of Sangiovese along with elegant, powdery tannins."
