Wine Spectator 93
"A firm, elegant and well-defined style, boasting cherry, currant, licorice, leather and spice flavors. Concentrated and long, with a robust, dense finish. Best from 2020 through 2033. 12,500 cases made" ~ BS
James Suckling 92
"A ripe red with plum and lemon-peel undertones. Very perfumed. Medium to full body, silky tannins and a polished finish. Very fine. Drink now." ~JS

The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino is an interesting wine that seems to break ties with the darker and riper style we've seen in past vintages from Camigliano. The fact that this nuanced and elegant style has been achieved in a warm vintage is as impressive as it is unlikely. You got to hand it to the hard working vineyard that the right elements(like harvest times and yields) to reach a more profound sense of harmony. The mouthfeel is streamlined and tight. Like many of its peers, this wine is best for near and medium-term consumption. Yet, the wine remains softly balanced and soothing on the senses nonetheless." ~ML

"Leafy underbrush, truffle, new leather and dark berry aromas slowly take shape in the glass. The taut palate offers dried black cherry, clove, star anise and espresso notes, with tightly-wound, fine grained tannins that leave a firm finish." ~KOK
easy to love - I'm in awe of critics who can accurately describe the taste of wine and I don't posses an expansive tasters descriptive vocabulary. However this is a delicious wine. It has fruit, mild tannins and a delicious finish. Great with a pate', guacamole, dishes with a red sauce and probably any red meat. I do love this moderately priced Brunello Di Montalcino!

Excellent - 2010 vintage. Nice sweet dark cherry. Great smooth tannins. A lovely brunello with excellent layers. I wish we decanted it longer.
