Reviews & Scores

Aromas of ripe fruit such as sweet strawberries and hints of orange peel and chocolate. Medium to full body, soft and velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. Riper style. Drink or hold.
95 Points, James Suckling

The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Vecchie Vigne boasts a beautifully saturated ruby color that appears healthy and bright. The aromas are presented with precision and balance. A wine like this offers irrefutable evidence that old vines are the best remedy in a hot and dry vintage. The wine's various elements are intact and focused. Dark cherry, candied plum, exotic spice, tar and licorice form a united front. I prefer this vintage to 2011.
94+ Points, Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

Dark red with an amber tinge. Ripe red cherry, sweet spices, grilled beef and blood orange, plus hints of cedar and new oak. Enters sweet and broad, then tighter and structured, but...
with refined tannins providing support to the sweetly spicy red fruit flavors. The finish is long and very pure. There’s a depth to this wine that the classico bottling does not have, a dpeth of flavor that derives from the old vines; spent 24 montsh in 70-80% new oak.

TASTING NOTES

A very elegant wine with dark cherry aromas intermingled with dried summer fruits and wild herbs. The vibrant palate has intense bright cherry fruit flavours balanced by seamless tannins and mineral freshness. Complex and refined this wine will be delicious to drink over the next few years but will age well for at least a decade. Drink from 2019.Armit Wines
