94pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Podere Brizio 2015 Brunello di Montalcino (an estate owned by Dievole) is a full and generous wine ready for a serving of veal and vegetables. This is an elegant and impactful expression of Sangiovese that impresses thanks to the purity and the fine nature of its aromas. Delicate fruit nuances of dried raspberry and cherry cede to dried spice, earth and crushed flowers. Those glorious floral aromas are nicely underlined with layers of lilac, violet and lavender. A touch of dusty mineral fits in smoothly on the finish.

Iris, woodland berry, new leather and wild mint aromas shape the nose on this fragrant red. The smooth, savory palate delivers juicy Morello cherry, crushed raspberry and licorice while velvety tannins lend polished support.
92pts Wine Spectator
This red is full of sweet, ripe cherry, raspberry and plum fruit, featuring flourishes of wild herbs, iron and tobacco. Complex and forthcoming, with beefy tannins compacting the finish, leaving a chunky feel in the end.
Ruby red with garnet highlights. Opulent and intense on the nose, with nuances of ripe red fruit and intriguing herbal notes. Well-balanced on the palate with a lively acidity that lends vitality and freshness to a very elegant and complex wine. A hint of black pepper accompanies the finish. The softest of tannins are a hallmark of the body of this fine wine.
Perfect when paired with cheeses, meat and game; excellent with pasta and cold cuts.
