James Suckling - 100 Points

“The purity of fruit on the nose is perfection with cherries, crushed raspberries, mineral, pumice, and citrus fruit. Dust, too. Full body. Powerful, chewy tannins. So long and muscular, yet polished and formed. Most structured Brunello I have ever had from here. A wine for decades. Try after 2022.”
