93 points Robert Parker'sWine Advocate:
"The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino emerges from the glass with wild cherries, smoke, tar, underbrush, new leather, licorice and spices. This dark, inward, yet mid-weight Brunello shows excellent length on the palate and fine overall balance. With time in the glass the wine reveals notable depth in its fruit, along with layers of aromatic complexity that continue to add nuance and shape. The firm, resonating finish suggests a bright future. This is a beautiful wine from Collosorbo. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2026."

"This thick, masculine expression of Brunello offers loads of rich spice, vanilla, moist tobacco, smoked bacon, toasted coconut and black fruit. The oak element is present but also well integrated and gives extra dimension and personality overall." (04/11) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Rich, supple and laced with cherry, tobacco, iron and sanguine aromas and flavors, this Brunello offsets its sweet fruit element with a firm, muscular structure. Displays fine harmony, ending in a lacy berry and mineral aftertaste. Best from 2013 through 2026."
