Altesino Brunello di Montalcino 2010
95 points James Suckling (Dec 2014): Wonderful decadent aromas of musk, orange peel and plum follow through to a full body, with soft tannins and a long and rich finish. Salty and savory. Layers of gorgeous fruit. Drink or hold.
93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Feb 2015): Altesino's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino stands proud among its peers. No other wine I tasted among the new releases in Montalcino achieves this unique level of aromatic finesse and distinction. The bouquet is almost purely floral in character with a strong emphasis on pressed rose petal, dried violets and potpourri. The fruit tones are less emphatic and include bright cherry and red currant. In the mouth, the wine's compressed texture is accented by fennel seed and licorice. the 2009 vintage had more power and heat, but this version shows elegant restraint. 93+ (ML)
93 points Wine Spectator (Jun 2015): Expressive aromas of eucalyptus, juniper and wild rosemary give way to sweet berry flavors, though the juniper, rosemary and emerging mint accents linger. This is like a walk in the woods, with a fresh, elegant frame. Best from 2017 through 2030.
Argiano Rosso di Montalcino 2013
紅桑果、野莓果香，香料及橡木香氣。有中等的丹寧及強勁的酸度，葡萄乾及成熟野莓果醬的味道，與大部分Sangiovese 一致，整體酸度高，適合配合意粉及薄餅等食物。 Rosso di Montalcino is deep ruby red in colour. It is medium bodied with a good concentration on the mid-palate. Elegant in the mouth, it is well balanced with tempting flavours of red berries, violets, menthol and earthiness.A generous wine with smooth, velvety tannins that will satisfy all Sangiovese lovers. The perfect companion at mealtimes, it is ideal paired with red meat, veal, bruschetta and all kinds of cheeses andpasta dishes
Biondi Santi Tenuta Greppo Annata Brunello di Montalcino 2011
93 Points Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous, February 2016:
The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Annata is silky, soft and open-knit, especially within the context of what has been the norm at Biondi Santi for the last few decades. Freshly cut flowers, red berries and mint all open up in the glass, but it is the wine's decidedly mid-weight structure that truly stands out. The 2011 is a very rare young Biondi Santi that will drink well pretty much upon release, as shocked as I myself am to write those words. The bright red cherry, raspberry and floral overtones have an almost Nebbiolo-sense of brightness. Drink 2017-2031
93 Points Monica Larner, Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate Feb 2016:
Jacopo Biondi Santi was already making wine at Il Greppo when the 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Annata was produced. His father, Franco Biondi Santi, would pass away in 2013 at the age of 91. The winemaking approach is unchanged despite the father to son transition. This wine shows extra richness and texture with focused fruit aromas that are graceful but also powerful. There are hints of ripe fruit with dried cherry and prune buried deep within the bouquet. In the mouth, this Brunello shows good structure and acidity with a slightly denser feel compared to past vintages.
CastelGiocondo Brunello di Montalcino 2009
94 points James Suckling - "Wonderful depth and richness to this wine for 2009. It's full-bodied, with a clean, polished tannin texture and a long, long finish. Last for minutes on the palate. A triumph for the vintage."
91 points Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "Ripe, juicy and explosive on the palate, the 2009 captures many of the best qualities of the year. Sweet red cherries, flowers, spices and tobacco burst from the glass. All the elements are in gorgeous balance in a soft, supple Brunello with tons of near and medium-term appeal. This is a strong showing from Frescobaldi."

Castiglion del Bosco Brunello di Montalcino 2009
WA 90 WS 94
時尚品牌Salvatore Ferragamo (飛甩雞毛)家族在2003年買下這座400多年歷史，在好幾世紀前便已聲名遠播，更以身為布尼魯蒙塔奇諾協會(Consorzio Brunello di Montalcino)的原始成員著名的酒莊。他們不僅花費大筆預算提升葡萄園的管理，更聘請頂尖的釀酒師，致力於出產托斯卡尼最令人驚豔的葡萄酒。這支特殊的布尼魯Brunello是釀自在Castiglion del Bosco園區內面向地中海的Capanna葡萄園, 24個月在法國小橡木桶中陳年，其中20%是新桶、80%是二手桶，之後再在瓶中陳年24個月。
Wine Spectator 90 points : "An aromatic red, offering cherry, floral and mushroom notes, with spice and savory licorice and tobacco flavors. On the lean, sinewy side, yet intense and persistent. Best from 2017 through 2026. 5,800 cases made."
Chianti Classico Giorgio Primo, Fattoria La Massa 2000
品種：85% Sangiovese, 15% Merlot
Medium-deep garnet colour. The nose here is wild and complex, with black and red cherries, tobacco, dried violets and truffle. The palate finds a wonderful balance between youthful cherries and mature cigar box notes. There are layers of juicy plums and undertones of flowers and smoke. The tannins give the wine structure, but at 15 years of age have softened into the wine, making this ready to drink. This is a delicious wine, which exhibits both regional typicity from Sangiovese and superb fleshiness from the Merlot. Tasted at June 2015.
92 Points James Suckling, Wine Spectator, October 2002:
Solid and powerful CC, offering loads of black fruit, gamy and vanilla character. Full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a long, balanced, dark chocolate-tinged finish. Lots of toasted oak and ripe fruit. Still needs to come together, yet such potential. Best after 2003. 4,900 cases made.
Ciacci piccolomini d'Aragona Brunello di Montalcino 2011
評分：94 points Vinous ：
The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is fabulous. In 2011, proprietor Paolo Bianchini bottled just one Brunello. That commitment to quality comes through loud and clear. Dark cherry, plum, smoke, tobacco and licorice all flesh out in an effortless, incredibly inviting wine. The warmth of the vintage and the natural generosity of these vineyards in Castelnuovo is evident, yet the 2011 possesses remarkable balance to match all of that intensity. I don't expect the 2011 to make old bones, but is gorgeous today. Readers should expect a flamboyant, decadently full-throttle wine built on voluptuousness and generous, racy fruit. Bianchini gave the 2011 three full years in cask. (AG) (2/2016)
93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate ：
The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is a very beautiful wine that shows a fraction of good things to come. Very fruit-driven at the moment, it should flesh out further with time. Evident fruit underlines the warm growing conditions of this vintage. You get dark cherry, raspberry, dried strawberry and plum. The bouquet doesn't feel overripe per se, but you definitely get a taste of the warm growing season. Delve deeper, and this Brunello begins to reveal spice, herb, cola, tar and black licorice. These elements form the base of the wine's budding complexity. As nice as this wine is to drink now, I look forward to trying it five years from now. (ML) (3/2016)

Crognolo Tenuta Sette Ponti 2013
品種：90% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot
95 Points James Suckling - "Lots of currants, blueberries, vanilla and floral character on the nose and palate. Full body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Edgy contrast of acidity, ripe fruit and wood. Stylish, savory and delicious. A blend of sangiovese and merlot. One of the best values amongst Super Tuscan reds. Drink in 2016."
Fuligni Brunello di Montalcino 2011
93 Points Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, February 2016:
The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is dark, pliant and super-expressive. Dark cherry, plum, blood orange and exotic spices all lift from the glass. Aromatically intriguing and generous, the 2011 will be ready to give all it's got pretty early. Although the 2011 is not especially complex, it is sensual, racing and inviting, all qualities that are accentuated by silky tannins that give the wine its succulent, open-knit personality. The 2011 spent two and half years in a combination of tonneau and cask.
93 Points Monica Larner, Wine Advocate (223), March 2016:
Fuligni's 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is a delightful wine that excels both in terms of its generosity and its approachability. It's easy to drink the whole bottle, glass after glass. The warmer vintage has shaped soft and rich fruit flavors that are enduring and enticing. Spice, leather and tangy tobacco fill in the rear adding dimension and aromatic substance. The mouthfeel shows great textural richness and a sudden spot of bright acidity. This is an honest, upfront and utterly enjoyable Brunello.
JS 93 WA 95
酒評: 細緻的乾漿果、黑櫻桃、皮革、香草等氣息， 以淡淡的煙草味收尾。中等至高酸度，單寧強而順滑，酒體飽滿，整體感覺複雜醇厚，開瓶透氣一小時後更佳。
This Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino has 100% Sangiovese from vines at least 20 years old. 3 years in 30-50 hectolitre French oak barrels, followed by a period of bottle aging.
2010 Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino 更獲得 2015年 Wines Spectators Top 10 第四名, 售價升到大約$400 (Source: Wine Searcher)
擁有將近 118 公頃的 Tenuta Il Poggione 葡萄園，主要分佈在 Montalcino 山丘南部的 Sant’Angelo in Colle 村週遭，平均海拔高於 400 公尺以上，有著更理想的地中海型氣候。由於海拔較高，清晨與傍晚的涼爽溫度，延長了葡萄的生長週期，讓葡萄有著更集中豐富的果味以及更多的層次，同時也保留充份的果酸。
Il Poggione 在19世紀中，與Biondi-Santi 和 Frescobaldi 三家酒莊率先開始釀造Brunello di Montalcino，讓 Brunello di Montalcino 在 1966 年成為最先獲得義大利官方 D.O.C. 認證的八個產區之一，之後在 1980 年最先成為最高的 D.O.C.G.。現在Tenuta Il Poggione已是Brunello di Montalcino裡最頂級明星酒莊。
La Magia Brunello di Montalcino 2012
產區：Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy
96 points James Suckling (Nov 2016) : Incredible purity of fruit to this red with plums, cherries and berries. Full body, ripe and silky tannins and a fantastically long finish. Love the bitter-orange undertone to this. Drink in 2020.
92 Points Wine Enthusiast: Truffle, leather, Mediterranean brush, chopped herb and black-skinned fruit aromas meld together with a balsamic note. The juicy, concentrated palate shows dried cherry, crushed raspberry, cinnamon and licorice while fine-grained tannins lend support. Give it time for the tannins to fully integrate. Drink 2020–2030.
La Palazzetta Brunello di Montalcino 2010
產區：Tuscany, Italy (DOCG)
The 18 hectare family run winery and vineyards are situated on the south-eastern edge of the Montalcino DOC in the tiny village of Castelnuovo dell’ Abate.
Flavio Fanti is a traditionalist – utilizing large Slovenian and French oak for his Brunello. However, he strongly believes that wine is a product of fruit and anytime fruit is consumed it must be ripe and mature.
Flavio's Brunello are a testament to the amazing zone of Castelnuovo dell’Abate. Flavio cultivates these vineyards organically with severe respect for the land and his beloved appellation. His Brunello are massive wines with structure, power and purity, without doubt, built for the long haul.
Le Volte dell' Ornellaia 2013
品種：50% Merlot, 30% Sangiovese, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon
92 Points James Suckling - "A young red with solid tannin power and plenty of ripe and flavorful fruit. Currants and ripe strawberries. Full body, and a fresh finish, although this is a little austere and hard now. Try in 2017 as tannins soften."
90 Points Wine Spectator - "Dark flavors of black cherry and blackberry pick up a pleasant leafy edge as this juicy red stretches out on the finish. Needs time to integrate, with a long aftertaste of fruit and mineral. Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2018 through 2026. "
Lisini Brunello di Montalcino 2008
93 points Wine Spectator (May 2013): The terrific aromas of strawberry, cherry and currant are accented by underbrush, spice and tobacco elements on the palate in this elegant and intense red, which builds to a persistent finish. Fruit and mineral accents echo on the aftertaste. Best from 2015 through 2030. (BS)
92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Jun 2013): Lisini’s 2008 Brunello di Montalcino is one of the few wines of the vintage that is going to require patience. A big, broad-shouldered wine, the 2008 fills out nicely over time with attractive black fruit, smoke, tar, game and savory herb notes. Although quite virile and imposing today, the 2008 also shows striking inner perfume and a level of sweetness that is likely to require some time to emerge, suggesting the wine has plenty of potential for improvement ahead. The 2008 spent 42 months in French oak, exceedingly long by today’s standards. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028. (AG)
Mastrojanni Brunello di Montalcino 2011
產區：Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy
93 Points The Wine Advocate - "Mastrojanni is on a roll. This extraordinary estate has been enjoying the spotlight lately and very much deserves the attention. I'm adding my name to a long list of their fans. The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is a classic expression of Sangiovese with soft lines and enduring flavors. You do feel some of the vintage heat, but the ripeness is contained thanks to the delicate and nuanced nature of its fruit. It also shows enormous grace in the mouth. The wine is silky and svelte with long, polished tannins. Mastrojanni's wines are linked by a common characteristic that is easy to identify in most vintages. That common denominator is excellent oak management."
93 Points James Suckling - "Round and rich with beautiful decadent fruit and richness. Orange peel. Full and juicy. Intense dried fruit and beauty. Sexy. Drink now."
92 Points Wine Enthusiast: Intense red berry, cake spice, new leather and sunbaked earth aromas meld together. The big, chewy palate delivers fleshy black cherry, toast, coffee, anise and grilled herb alongside solid, ripe tannins. You'll also get a nod of alcohol on the finish.
90 Points Wine Spectator: This is savory, boasting licorice, saline, soy and sweet berry flavors. Smooth and fleshy, with fine balance and a lingering savory aftertaste. Drink now through 2024.
Siro Pacanti Brunello di Montalcino Pelagrilli 2012
95 Points James Suckling: So much violet, licorice and berry character to this. Wonderful depth. Full body, dusty and chewy tannins and a persistent and intense finish. Layered mouthfeel. Drink in 2020.
92 Points Antonio Galloni: Deep red with ruby tinges. Delicately flinty and herbal notes complicate sour red cherry, redcurrant and underbrush aromas. Fresh and juicy but with an almost austere quality to the crisp red berry and minty plum flavors. Finishes long and clean with a mineral nuance. The herbal note disapperars with aeration, so it’s of paramount importance to give this wine plenty of air. Pacenti makes 20,000 bottles a year of this Brunello from 25 to 35 year old vines with roughly 75-80% of the grapes grown in the northern Pellagrilli estate vineyards and the rest from the Piancornello vineyards in the southern reaches Montalcino.
92 Points The Wine Advocate : Boasting contemporary lines and a generously extracted style, the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Pelagrilli delivers an approach that will appeal to a wider circle of consumers, far outside hardcore Brunello enthusiasts. The bouquet peels off slowly with rich intensity and dark fruit notes of black cherry, plum, soft spice, tobacco and licorice. You don't get any of the bitter or thorny acidity that can sometimes make Brunello difficult to love, especially in its youth. This wine is appropriate for near or medium-term drinking.
91 Points Wine Enthusiast: This opens with dry underbrush, sun-baked soil and French oak aromas. The palate is equally brooding, its dried black cherry and blackberry fruit brushed with licorice and espresso flavors. Assertive, close-grained tannins leave a firm finish. Drink 2020–2027.
Tenuta dei Pianali Coronato Bolgheri 2007
品種：40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Cabernet Franc, 25% Merlot, 2 % Petit Verdot
"...this is a beautiful wine from Lodovico Antinori..." Antonio Galloni Only 25,000 bottles produced. Deep ruby red. The nose is intense and complex with notes of cassis, chocolate and spicy vanilla oak. The palate is well structured with a nice acidity, reflecting the terroir. The wine has a long and well defined finish.
93 Points Wine Enthusiast - "This excellent vintage of Coronato (a hearty blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot) opens with inky, black concentration and aromas of chocolate fudge, espresso, black fruit and spice. The wine tastes velvety and rich and will age for 10 years or more."
Wine Spectator ,James Suckling, October 31, 2007 "One of the big developments is the release of two vintages of a new wine from Tenuta di Biserno. Biserno is the new family-owned winery of brothers Piero and Lodovico Antinori, located just outside the appellation of Bolgheri… I find the style of the property's wines already to be a fascinating combination of Ornellaia's and Sassicaia's, emphasizing the generosity of the former and the firmness and backbone of the latter."
TENUTA DI BISERNO IL Pino di Biserno 2009
品種：Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot,
Il Pino is the second wine of Tenuta di Biserno in Bibbona, in the hills just north of Bolgheri. The blend includes cabernets franc and sauvignon, merlot and petit verdot, and it’s luscious, gamey and distinctive, balancing the drive and freshness of franc with the richness of merlot. The balance feels complete, suited to short-term aging.
Robert Parker: 93
The 2009 Il Pino di Biserno already shows promising signs of a happy evolution. A blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, the wine is redolent of dried tobacco, black currant and rain-soaked earth. It delivers balanced power and concentration that drive a long, rich finish. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. Tenuta di Biserno is the pride and joy of Lodovico Antinori, a man with a gifted talent for selecting the best sites for growing vines along the rugged coast of Tuscany. After selling Tenuta della Ornellaia years ago, Lodovico invested much of his energy and passion here.
Wine Spectator: 90
This is suave, with polished tannins and a rich texture framing black cherry, plum and chocolate notes, showing good grip on the long finish. Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2018. 6,000 cases made.

Tenuta San Guido Bolgheri Sassicaia 2013
產區：Bolgheri ,Tuscany, Italy
品種：85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc
98 Points James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, February 2016:
Fabulous structure for a Sassicaia with powerful, polished, chewy tannins and ripe, subtle fruit. Aromas of blueberry, black currant, rosemary and lavender. Full body, bright acidity and a savory finish. Juicy and lively. Better to drink this beginning in 2020 but so impressive now.
97 Points Monica Larner, Wine Advocate (225), August 2016:
The 2013 Bolgheri Sassicaia is released 30 years after the death of Tenuta San Guido founder, Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, and in the same year that his son Nicolò celebrated his 80th birthday. This is a wine of excellent execution, beautiful balance and seamless intensity. The bouquet opens slowly to reveal delicate aromas of dark fruit and integrated spice that build in steady strength. That forward momentum, which is so specific to Sassicaia, is what ultimately brings us confidence in the wine's remarkable ageing potential. The mouthfeel delivers freshness and power, but in measured doses, with long and silky persistence. The 2013 vintage should be set aside for ten more years.
Valdicava Rosso di Montalcino 2013
90 Points Antonio Galloni - Antonio Galloni's Vinous, February 2015:
Valdicava's 2013 Rosso di Montalcino is full of floral and dark red/purplish stone fruit notes. The freshness of the year comes through in the wine's aromatic complexity and nuance. The finessed, long finish is particularly of note. I tasted the 2013 from steel just prior to bottling.
