93 points Falstaff Guide: "Bright ruby colour. Inviting nose of rosehip, pomegranate, wild strawberry and delicate spice. Precise on the palate, with vivid fruit, spreading across the tongue juicily with a touch of saltiness. Long and vigorous finish. (Feb 2021)"
92 points Wine Spectator: "There is an inherent sweetness to this red, thanks to the ripe plum and black cherry fruit, with leather, tobacco and licorice notes playing supporting roles. This is solidly built, lingering nicely on the finish, where a saline element emerges. Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2021 through 2033. (Oct 2020)"
92 points James Suckling: "A fresh, firm 2017 with blackberry, blueberry and dark-chocolate character. It’s medium-to full-bodied with chewy tannins and a fresh, tangy finish. Like the light bitter lemon at the finish. Drink now. (10/27/20)"
91 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "Packaged with a black label to show its Riserva status, this beautiful wine shows classic lines and good harmony. From a hot and dry vintage that threw many challenges at vintners across Tuscany, the Barone Ricasoli 2017 Chianti Classico Riserva Brolio reveals the expertise and know-how of the Ricasoli winemaking team. It opens to dark cherry and blackberry with earthy background aromas and plenty of smoke and crushed mineral. This is the kind of wine you'll want next to a wood-fired lasagna. Drink: 2021-2027. (Apr 2021)"
