Robert Parker (94)

The Castiglion del Bosco 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Millecento 1100 is the aspirational wine in this portfolio. It aims high and showcases the carefully manicured approach of the winemaking team in both the vineyard and the winery. This is a grand vintage with firm structure, lots of fruit brightness, depth and freshness. You should expect balanced intensity at this price point, and you get it. My only concern, again, is the high 15% alcohol, which is evidently part of a wider trend that now characterizes this appellation. Production is 20,000 bottles.

James Suckling (97)

Blueberries and cherries with hints of cedar and spice, as well as plenty of mixed dried flowers, including violets. Some graphite and stone, too. Medium-to full-bodied with racy tannins and a long, long finish. It’s linear and complete, with lovely elegance and structure.

Winespectator (97)

This red reveals both power and finesse, with intense aromas of truffle, black currant, violet and iron leading off, backed by saturated dark berry fruit, floral, leather and tobacco flavors. Big, muscular tannins grab hold of the finish, with ample fruit in reserve.

Jancis Robinson (17.50)

Transparent ruby. Pale rim. You'll never be aware of the alcoholic strength. This is almost featherlight! So appetising with a hint of autumn leaves and wonderfully fresh fruit. Hint of prunes on the nose but the fruit is not dried – it's fresh. Long and layered. This is what Brunello can do. The 2015 was lovely too. Great intensity of flavour. Love the little bitter note on the finish after that very superior fruit.

Falstaff (97)

Leuchtendes Rubinrot. In der Nase nach reifen Kirschen, einem Hauch Marzipan, getrockneten Rosen, dann Erdbeeren im Nachhall, edle harzige Tone runden das Bukett ab. Am Gaumen mit toller Fruchtsüße und herzhaftem Verlauf, zeigt tänzelndes Spiel, baut sich in vielen Schichten auf, eigenständig und lange.
