96 points James Suckling: "A polished and reserved Castello with cherry, orange-peel and chocolate aromas and flavors. Tight and round-tannined, in a very subtle and curated way. The precision in this wine is impressive. Needs time to open. Try after 2025. (7/4/22)"
95 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "The Barone Ricasoli 2019 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Castello di Brolio represent a new chapter in the history of this popular wine. The wine is 100% Sangiovese selected from various parcels. There has been a shift to fruit from higher elevations and cooler growing conditions. The three main soil types—sandstone, schistous galestro and limestone alberese—are all faithfully represented here. This wine is streamlined and elegant, and its freshness is superb. That crisp and tart character of Gaiole comes through clearly, along with polished mineral, clover, spice and forest fruit. Drink: 2023-2040. (Feb 2023)"
95 points Bruce Sanderson (Wine Spectator): "[$70 list] Polished and balanced, this red offers cherry, plum, floral, iron and tobacco flavors, with a kiss of vanilla. Focused, with a dense line of tannins, yet this is balanced and complex. Youthful, so be patient. Best from 2025 through 2042. 1,800 cases made, 125 cases imported. (9/30/22)"
