    JAMES SUCKLING 97 POINTS - "This is all about finesse and beauty with such great length and polish. It literally melts in your mouth. Full-bodied yet agile and vivid. So many undertones of cedar, berries, cream and light toffee. Fabulous. Contender for the wine of the vintage."

    WINE ADVOCATE 94 POINTS - "Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona is one of the headline estates of Montalcino and the Pianrosso single vineyard is known for its consistency and the steady grace of its performance. The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna di Pianrosso does not quite reach the heights of the outstanding 2010 vintage. This release comes near in terms of power and purity, although it bears some of the weight of the hot vintage. The darkness of fruit is more pronounced and the tannins are a bit softer. Make no mistake, the thick soils of the Pianrosso site have helped to achieve impressive balance. The long finish offers tobacco, balsam herb and dried fruit." This is the star for Ciacci Piccolomini, year in and year out—this Brunello is highly traditional in style. The wine is fermented in glass-lined cement and stainless steel tanks then aged in Slavonian oak barrels for 36 months. “Pianrosso” is absolutely gorgeous and rich brunello, with complex aromas of red fruits, flowers, licorice and spice, that only gets better with age.

    WINE ADVOCATE 94 POINTS - "Valdicava represents its own school within the greater Brunello philosophy. This estate (under proprietor Vincenzo Abbruzzese) crafts contemporary and modern wines with noticeable density and ever-present aromatic intensity. The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino reveals a dark and inky appearance with bright ruby highlights that break through the background darkness with brilliance. The nose is generous and robust with dark cherry fruit, plum, Indian spice, mocha and espresso bean. These elements are stitched together with seamless transitions. Despite that grand approach, Sangiovese's prickly and often nervous personality shines through nonetheless. The variety adds delicate berry nuances and bright acidity that give this wine profound depth. This is a very well-made wine that promises a long aging future."

    JAMES SUCKLING 93 POINTS - "Aromas of ripe strawberries and spicy tea follow through to a full body, chewy and polished tannins and a succulent finish. Balanced and pretty."

    WINE ADVOCATE 92 POINTS - "The Frescobaldi family is becoming an ever more important force in the Montalcino territory thanks to recent land and winery investments. The Castelgiocondo 2012 Brunello di Montalcino is a soft and supple expression of Sangiovese. This oak-driven wine offers a generous bouquet that is based in part on dark cherry and primary fruit, and in part on spicy tones of toast and smoke. That said, this estate has very much redefined its use of oak and the results show much more balance and purity compared to wines made one decade ago. The brightness of the acidity also comes as a surprise given the warm vintage. That freshness is essential to the wine's aging potential."

    JAMES SUCKLING 92 POINTS - "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."

    ROBERT PARKER 91 POINTS - "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 team that evidently found 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."

    The Antinori family of Florence is one of the world's oldest and most distinguished wine producers and has lived in Tuscany since the 14th century.

    WINE SPECTATOR 94 POINTS - "The sweet cherry and raspberry flavors set the pace for this supple, charming Brunello. Leather, tobacco, earth and iron accents add complexity as this cruises to a terrific finish. Feels more open, yet this should develop well. Best from 2020 through 2033."

    WINE ADVOCATE 94 POINTS - "Canalicchio di Sopra is high on my shortlist of favorite producers in Montalcino. The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino is a sumptuous wine made according to carefully considered criteria. Every step of the winemaking process represents a selection of sorts, culminating in an expression of extremes. The precision, the focus and the pristine nature of the aromas cannot be exaggerated. It is such a pleasure to taste a wine of this caliber and distinction. Aromas of dark fruit and savory spice find seamless integration. Background tones of balsam herb, cola and licorice add a superior level of complexity. In the mouth, the wine is polished, fine and silky. The mouthfeel is thinner compared to 2011 and 2010. Otherwise, this is a fabulously elegant Brunello."

    WINE SPECTATOR 95 POINTS - "Loads of balsamic aromas and flavors--juniper, rosemary, thyme, olive--along with cherry, sanguine and tobacco notes are the hallmarks of this intense red. Well-integrated and complex, building to a long aftertaste. Best from 2021 through 2035. 3,400 cases made."

    JAMES SUCKLING 94 POINTS - "Wow. I love the texture and beauty of this young Brunello. Medium to full body with a dense and tightly compacted palate. Dried cherry light cedar and chocolate. It goes on for minutes. Gorgeous now. Excellent acid fruit balance, but will improve with age."

    WINE ADVOCATE 93 POINTS - "The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino is a beautifully finessed and elegant wine. It offers a very pleasing sense of balance in which no one characteristic overpowers the next. A dark ruby appearance gives the wine an open and inviting personality. The bouquet produces a subtle medley of wild berry, blueberry, underbrush and toasted almond aromas. The mouthfeel is lean, but it also shows polished and silky persistence. If you don't have the patience to wait, it tastes great even at this early stage."

    WINE SPECTATOR 96 POINTS - "Cherry, leather and iron notes mark this suave, elegant red. A bit reticent now, but the fruit is fresh and long on the finish. The dense tannins leave a mouthcoating impression, but this opens up beautifully over a few hours. Best from 2021 through 2035."

    WINE ADVOCATE 96 POINTS - "I am always such a big fan of Andrea Cortonesi's work. Like his previous releases, the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino shows an uncanny sense of continuity and consistency with past releases. This steady stylistic focus is one of the best reasons to buy Uccelliera Brunello. The wine is dark and rich in appearance. Fruit from this vintage was smaller than usual and Andrea jokes that during the 2012 growing season you could hardly call it "Sangiovese Grosso," the name of the Sangiovese clone used in Montalcino. It is normally characterized by larger berry size, but not in this warm and dry vintage. Fruit was concentrated and smaller instead. The wine's explosive flavor profile demonstrates this fact. Blackberry and dark fruit segues to spice, tobacco and balsam herb."

    JAMES SUCKLING 95 POINTS - "Aromas of walnuts and ripe fruit such as mature plums in combination with undertones of cedar. Full body, chewy tannins and spicy finish. Intense dried lemons. Burning spices. So much going on here. Such a complete and complex wine. Drink in 2019."

    Gianni Brunelli – Le Chiuse di Sotto – Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2012 This Brunello is made from the vineyards standing in the two properties of the estate, Canalicchio and Podernovone. The vineyards of Canalicchio have a north-east exposure, the altitude is 200 meters above sea level and the vines were planted in 1989. The vineyards of Podernovone stand at 350 meters above sea level with a south-west exposure and the vines were planted in 1997. The following is what Laura Brunelli, owner of the estate, wrote to us: Report on the 2012 production. An initial powerful and vigorous vegetative development, due to the plentiful rains in the springtime and to the temperature which was quite mild, required us to carry out practices to contain and select the buds. We also carried out “soft” deleafing at the base of the canopy, where the clusters grow. The climate then changed, the temperature got higher and the rain was scarce starting at the end of the springtime and during the whole productive cycle of the vines. Therefore, we had to maintain the little water supply by working the soil so to contain the evapotranspiration as much as possible. The management of the health of the vines and of the grapes was extremely easy. We then started harvesting a few days early, so not to make the sugar-alcohol content rise too much and so to maintain a good acidity and pH, following the results of the analyses that were carried out. Consequently, we can assert that the production of our Sangiovese 2012 has been very good. The management of the phases of vinification, extraction of the anthocyanins and maceration of the tannins was very harmonic and simple, the techniques were obviously adequate to the vintage. In the following maturation phase in wood we did our best to maintain the excellent integrity of the wine and to preserve the good fruity aromatic component of a ripe Sangiovese. Laura Brunelli and the Staff Laura Brunelli, who also manages “Osteria Le Logge”, one of the best restaurants in Siena, suggests to match this wine with a leg of lamb, with a succulent beefsteak, with beef cooked at a low temperature, game such as wild boar or hare, but also with roast duck or with pork. The production was 14,000 bottles

    JAMES SUCKLING 96 POINTS - "Fantastically complex aromas of spices, dried flowers and plums follow through to a full body, integrated and polished tannins and a superb finish. This is a 2012 Brunello with it all. Drink in 2018.#5 of the Top 25 Brunellos of 2012"

    WINE ADVOCATE 94+ POINTS - "The Argiano 2012 Brunello di Montalcino does a great job of interpreting the vintage and of showcasing its special microclimate on the southern flank of the Montalcino appellation. Both these elements point to warm-climate Sangiovese. and Argiano accepts that challenge with creativity and expertise. This is a proud expression of the grape with thick texture, determination and a succulent approach. Aromas of dark cherry, moist earth, tobacco and grilled herb lift from the bouquet. Bright acidity marks the close. The wine still carries its baby fat and needs a few more years of cellar aging in order to fully express itself."

    JAMES SUCKLING 93 POINTS - "Bright and freshly fruity with plum, cherry and walnut undertones. Medium to full body and firm and silky tannins. Really beautiful and bright. One of the best wines in years from here. Drink or hold."

    ANTONIO GALLONI; VINOUS 91 POINTS - "Good bright red. Very pure nose offers raspberry, pomegranate, and licorice. Fresh and vinous, with scented yet silky flavors of redcurrant, raspberry, flowers and spices perked up by firm acidity and a solid mineral spine. The finish is penetrating and long and long. This is a lovely example of the typical 2012."

    WINE ADVOCATE 90 POINTS - "The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino offers an authentic interpretation of this celebrated appellation in southern Tuscany. The bouquet is rich and sophisticated with candied cherry, dried currant and spice. I tasted this wine very soon after its commercial release and it took a little while open. It showed a point of reduction well. Give the glass a few vigorous swirls and the wine begins to peel back. Varietal aromas of moist earth, button mushroom, grilled herb and blue flower ultimately add to the wine's timid complexity. Give this wine two or three years to flesh out."

    La Colombina borders on both the Ciacci and Uccelliera estates in the township of Castelnuovo dell’Abate. The superior location of the estate is immediately evident in the ripe, powerful fruit on the nose, with an underlying intensity and weight that is typical of Castelnuovo dell’Abate, making wines that, similar to Ciacci and Uccelliera, are compelling and long-lived. Close in quality to their better-known neighbors, Colombina’s wines remain a great value.

    WINE SPECTATOR 94 POINTS - "This red combines power and elegance, with bright acidity and dense tannins. Cherry and plum fruit are accented by leather, tobacco and mineral. Best from 2020 through 2035."
