"Very fresh and layered, sporting dried cherry, tobacco, leather and black tea aromas and flavors. There's sweetness and firm tannins, with a sense of elegance and a long, tobacco-tinged aftertaste. Best from 2012 through 2022. 525 cases made. " (WS)

"Good deep red. Aromatic nose offers cherry, rose petal, marzipan, licorice and a whiff of forest floor. Sweet and silky, but the flavors of red raspberry, cherry and licorice are firmed by an edge of acidity. Finishes fragrant, with slightly drying tannins and a light tartness." (IWC)

"Opulent and rich with a modern twist of espresso and vanilla, Lazzeretti has produced a succulent, soft wine that will age many long years ahead. This expression of Brunello lasts long on the palate thanks to its tones of sweet spice, black cherry, cola and creamy milk chocolate. " (WE)

"Wonderful aromas of dried berries, plums, prunes and dark truffles. Full body, with chewy tannins and plenty of toasted oak and berries. Coffee bean and spices too. Lots of tannins. This will soften and come right in three to four years." (JS)
