91 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "The organic Francesco Cirelli 2020 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is inky rich with soft layers and heavy fruit weight. Despite its significant front-loaded density, this wine offers more than just ripe fruit character, although there is a lot of that as well, with baked plum and blackberry. I get pretty mineral detailing, spice and toasted espresso bean. Clay amphorae are used, and 13,000 bottles were released. Drink 2022-2027 (Jun 2023)."

90 points Eric Guido (Vinous): "Wild herbs, rose, lavender and sour cherry can all be found in the glass as the 2020 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Anfora slowly comes to life. This floods the palate with masses of mineral-tinged red fruits under a pretty violet floral air, while brisk acids create an almost-crunchy sensation. This wine is lightly structured with grippy tannins, yet the mouth is left watering for more as a hint of orange oil slowly fades. Nicely done. Drink: 2023-2026. (Oct 2022)"
