94 points James Suckling: "This is a full-bodied red that opens with dried cherries, mushrooms and violets. Licorice notes too. Firm tannins and a minerally, tarry finish. Drink after 2024. (11/11/20)"
93 points Eric Guido (Vinous): "[$65 list] I’m finding a depth and richness in the 2016 Donatella Cinelli Colombini Brunello di Montalcino that I haven’t witnessed from this bottling in previous vintages. The bouquet sets the stage with a mix of crushed black cherries, plums, incense and exotic brown spices. It’s silky, almost creamy in texture, finding balance through juicy acids, as purple-tinged red and black fruits flesh out, leaving tactile mineral tones under an inner air of lavender and violets. This maintains perfect poise in spite of a larger-scaled feel, tapering off to a coating of fine tannins with hints of black tea and dark chocolate. Drink: 2024-2034. (Nov 2020)"
