93 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "Le Filigare's 2016 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Lorenzo opens to rich fruit weight and lots of dark cherry and blackberry. There is a hint of spice or even crushed white pepper that gives the wine an extra boost of vitality or lift. Indeed, that brightness is a common thread found in the wines of the newly envisioned San Donato sub zone. I love the textural grip and power supplied by this Gran Selezione and am thinking of a pairing with a classic Tuscan pappardelle al cinghiale. Drink: 2021-2028. (Apr 2021)"

93 points James Suckling: "A fruity, juicy red with berry, chocolate and vanilla character. Medium to full body, round tannins and a flavorful finish. From organically grown grapes. Another year or two of bottle age will help. Try after 2021. (7/14/21)"

93 points Luca Maroni (7/1/20)

90 points Kerin O'Keefe (Wine Enthusiast): "Made with organically farmed Sangiovese, this offers aromas of black-skinned berry, espresso and tilled soil. The concentrated palate shows ripe black plum, star anise and mocha alongside firm, fine-grained tannins. Drink: 2021–2027. (Dec 2020)"
