96 points James Suckling: "A rich, intense syrah with aromas and flavors of green tobacco, dried meat and rich fruit. It’s full-bodied, yet tight and polished. Delicious at the end. Serious. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold. (7/7/20)"

93 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "This is a fascinating expression of Syrah that does not fit into our preconceived expectations of the grape, whether from the Old World or the New. The Fontodi 2017 Syrah Case Via opens to a rich, inky dark appearance. I got a sweet note of butterscotch or caramel at the start, but that subsided quickly to make room for black fruit, toasted wood, campfire ash and ripe plum. The wine is not exactly varietally pure, especially if you identify with the toasty Shiraz camp of Australia or the meaty, white peppercorn camp of the Rhône. Instead, this wine has a vaguely carbonic level of energy, zest and ripe primary fruit. The fruit is dark, bold, rich and Tuscan, with a direct and sunny personality. Drink: 2020-2030. (Aug 2020)"

93 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2017 Syrah Case Via is dark, ample and enveloping. Blackberry, chocolate, leather, licorice and spice infuse the 2017 with striking intensity to match its plush, textured feel. The Fontodi Syrah is done in a style that emphasizes fruit and overall richness more than savoriness or minerality. Drink: 2020-2030. (Sep 2020)"
