Wine SpectatorRipe and juicy, boasting cherry, strawberry, floral and spice aromas and flavors. Good underlying structure keeps this balanced and the overall impression is one of harmony. Firm but not aggressive tannins add grip. Best from 2021 through 2035. 350 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastEarthy aromas of underbrush, leather, scorched earth and balsamic notes lead the way on this powerfully built red. The firmly structured, chewy palate doles out dried black cherry, blackberry extract, licorice and tobacco alongside tightly packed noble tannins. Drink 2022-2032.

Wine AdvocateSpicy tobacco and black plum or dried prune emerge from the bouquet of the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva AdAlberto. This is a muscular and robust Brunello from a hot vintage that presents all that firm opulence with unabashed flair. There is a point of tannic astringency or tightness that needs a few more years of bottle aging before it integrates and softens.
