James Suckling 98 Points: “Ripe, decadent aromas of blackberries, black truffles and black cherries with hints of violets. Dark, wet earth, too. Full-bodied with a solid core of beautiful, pure fruit and creamy, round and fine tannins. Tight and reserved but showing wonderful potential. Try after 2025.”
Falstaff 97 Points: “Kraftvolles Rubin mit feinem Granatrand. Sehr kompakte Nase mit einladenden Noten nach reifen, dunklen Kirschen, Brombeeren, feine Würze im Hintergrund. Saftig und rund in Ansatz und Verlauf, zeigt viel präsente Frucht, feinmaschiges Tannin in vielen Schichten, im Finale fester Druck, kompakt.’’
Wine Spectator 96 Points: “Pure black cherry, blackberry and black currant flavors abound in this rich red, supported by graphite, earth, wild rosemary and anise notes. Balanced and almost approachable now, yet the refined tannins and bright acidity should allow this to develop for decades. Best from 2024 through 2047. 200 cases imported. — BS”
Decanter 95 Points: “Lighter in colour than the Luce, higher acidity even on the aromatics, gorgeously sculpted and nuanced, with kick and backbone. A savoury edge to the fruit, and strong spices, we are here at almost five years since harvest and you feel the softened tannins with tobacco and olive paste alongside still bright cherry fruits. This is sliding towards being ready to drink, although a few more years will really open things up. Aged in Croatian oak for 24 months. Drinking Window 2024 – 2040”
Robert Parker 94 Points: “From the Frescobaldi family of Florence, the Luce della Vite (or Tenuta Luce) 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Luce is a wine of depth and intensity. This 2016 vintage goes further and offers more substance than most of the recent vintages we've seen. It reveals a dark color and appearance with cocktail cherry, balsam spice and a touch of white chocolate. The tannins are dry, but the wine compensates with a good dose of that concentrated fruit richness that defines this classic vintage. This is a 30,000-bottle release.”
Jeb Dunnuck 92 Points: “The 2016 Brunello is ripe with aromas of blackberry compote, tobacco, sage, and sunbaked earth. The palate has lasting black cherry fruit, coffee, and licorice, with rich texture and firm tannins with significant hold. This will certainly be a wine to cellar for 4-6 years and drink 2026-2036.”
