| 91 points, James Suckling: "Soft cherry, citrus peal, allspice and olive. Light styling with tender tannins. Juicy, savory and so delicious. Drink now."
90 points, Wine Spectator: "Cherry, raspberry and tobacco notes are matched to an elegant yet tight frame. Tense and defined, with very good length. Sangiovese, Canaiolo and Colorino. Best from 2016 through 2024." -BS (31-July-2015)
