Vintage Notes by Wine Spectator 7/2021: "Montalcino has been on a hot streak in recent years. With the exception of the difficult 2014 vintage, a string of outstanding to exceptional harvests since 2010 is capped by the best of the decade so far--the dream vintage of 2016. Simply put, the '16s are the most compelling young examples from this Tuscan region since the 1990s."

    This suave and velvety red boasts cherry, leather, earth, tobacco and woodsy aromas and flavors. Verging on creamy, the texture showcases the ripe, macerated cherry fruit, ending with a dusting of tannins. Offers fine overall balance and length. Best from 2024 through 2045.
