• New ratings for our new vintages: James Suckling

    James Suckling has reviewed our Brunello di Montalcino 2016 ed our Brunello di Montalcino 2015 RIserva VIgna Paganelli, which will be released in 2021

    Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna Paganelli 2015 - 96 Points

    Blackberry and blueberry aromas with black truffle and lavender that follow through to a full body with a very fine, compact palate of ripe, refined tannins. It is a lovely wine to taste now, but will be even better in a year or two. Excellence here. Drink or hold.

    Brunello di Montalcino 2016 - 94 Points

    A red with blackberry, cherry, some walnut and chocolate, as well as mahogany. Tea, too. It’s full-bodied and firm-tannined with beautiful length and depth. Linear and very fine. Drink after 2024.
