"Cerbaiona's 2012 Brunello di Montalcino is a nuanced and delicate wine that offers ample power, intensity and length. What the wine does best is paint a portrait of the grape in its most pure and naked state. It offers crisp outlines with loads of wild berry, blue flower and moist earth on the inside. That balanced ensemble of flavors adds to the long and polished persistence you feel in the mouth. Give this wine another 10 years of aging to best appreciate its slow evolution and budding complexity. Drink: 2020-2040. 95 points

I tasted this wine last year at the estate just before its commercial release. Estate Manager Matthew Fioretti asked me to refrain from publishing a review, and I respected his wish. However, I bought a bottle of the wine during my stay in Montalcino. I was curious to chart its evolution roughly one year later, and the results are phenomenal. I was unable to taste the 2013 vintage because it had not yet been released as we went to press."
