98 points James Suckling: "There’s something ethereal in the nose with flowers, cherries, strawberries and shitake mushrooms. Full body. This grows on the palate with super tannin and fruit structure. So much berry flavor and round, caressing tannins that fill your mouth. Tight at the end. This needs four to five years to show its true greatness. Try after 2023. (9/15/19)"

98 points International Wine Report: "The 2015 Livio Sassetti Brunello di Montalcino is incredible and one of the top wines from the vintage. Displaying a gorgeous color, with powerful and well-structured nature, it releases notes of red flowers, currants, hibiscus flowers and ripe strawberries that comes together with hints of cola and an earthy character. Displaying extraordinary quality, this young Brunello possesses a medium-to full-bodied, soft tannins, remarkable precision leading up to the stunning finish. Elegant in its subtle concentration with beautiful balance on the palate which makes it accessible even at the early stage. This is striking today but should also have an incredible future ahead, one of the finest wines from the vintage. Drink: 2022-2042. (Mar 2020)"
