| 98 points, James Suckling: "This is the same quality or better than the legendary 2006. Lovely aromas of berries, chocolate and walnuts follow through to a full body with loads of fruit, and chewy tannins that are polished and velvety.... One of Tuscany's true cult wines, Testamatta, it's pure Sangiovese that has the race and breed of a grand cru burgundy. Think of DRC La Tache. Needs at least four to five years of bottle age still...Try in 2017" (April 2010)
93 points, Wine Spectator: "Starts out supple and fruity, boasting black cherry, raspberry, earth and spice flavors. The firm tannins flex their muscles as this firms up on the chewy, intense and lingering finish. Sangiovese. Best from 2016 through 2024."
Ageing potential: 2024
