97 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2014 Cepparello bristles with all the energy and tension that make the best wines of this year so compelling. The purity of the flavors is remarkable. Translucent, bright and crystalline, the 2014 has so much to offer. Readers will have to be patient with the 2014. It is a superb wine in the making. Drink: 2022-2039. (Feb 2019)"

95 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "The 2014 Cepparello is truly beautiful, and it absolutely transcends the expectation of the vintage. This beautiful Sangiovese is full and generous on all levels. It offers an upfront presentation with opulent fruit, deep layering and fine elegance. This is a special kind of magic. The wine opens to an inky dark appearance followed by generous flavors of dark cherry, black currant, red rose and cured tobacco. I just love the way this wine integrates with the palate, becoming one in soul and substance. This is a wine to put in your cellar. Drink: 2019-2035. (Oct 2017)"

94 points and 'Cellar Selection,' Wine Enthusiast: "[$85 list] Blue flower, perfumed berry, cake spice and a whiff of French oak are just some of the aromas that swirl out of the glass. Racy and refined, the savory palate doles out juicy wild cherry, crushed raspberry and oak-driven spice alongside bright acidity and well-integrated tannins. It's still young, with plenty of verve but it's also balanced. Give this plenty of time to fully develop. Drink 2022–2034. (May 2018)"
