Wine Spectator: 90 points

Very pretty blueberry and light vanilla aromas, with hints of ripe dark fruits. Full-bodied, with round, velvety tannins that turn chewy, yet this is well-polished and the tannins are attractive, with a long finish. Best after 2012. 19,165 cases made. -JS

James Suckling: 90 points

This is very floral and fruity with raspberry and plum skin undertones. Full-bodied with slightly chewy tannins and a mouth-puckering finish. Perhaps lacking somewhat in the center palate, but is should fill in with time.

From the historic Frescobaldi family that has been making wine since the 1300s, this concentrated and rich Brunello delivers a modern touch to a territory steeped in tradition. Aromas here include plump cherry, blackberry and cassis and all that fruit is supported by spice and light toast. Drink after 2012.
