Wine tasting notes

From one of the most important vintages of the century, great ageing potential is combined here with an already appealing drinkability, characteristic of the Tricerchi style.

Expert reviews

Vinous/Antonio Galloni (2016) - 93 pts

The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino mixes sour cherry with plums, cloves, spiced orange peels and sage in a display that really pulls you close to the glass. It’s cool-toned and silky, with energizing acidity and salty minerals that frame its tart wild berry fruits. There’s beautiful balance here, as it swings from savory to sweet, taking on a purple-tinged persona, as notes of licorice and violet florals linger on the longer and structured finish. This is really very nice and geared to a long and even evolution in collectors’ cellars. Eric Guido

From a vineyard at 290 m above sea level with a west-north-west exposure. Total skin maceration time of 30 days and aged in Slavonian oak casks of 15 and 20 hl for 30 months, followed by at least eight months in bottle. Mid ruby with the beginning of orange tinges. Attractive, full, perfumed nose of cherry and strawberry fruit with a peppery tingle and what looks like a hint of oak. Generous ripe red and cherry fruit with a shot of acidity and chewy tannins. Lots of juice and grip on the finish. (WS)


James Suckling (2016) - 92 pts

A pretty, medium-bodied style of Brunello with peppery spice on the nose, followed by lots of sour cherry and clove. Tar and tobacco leaf, too. Good acidity and fine tannins with a fresh finish. Drink after 2021.
