96 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "I had previously reviewed this blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc and 8% Merlot in a preview capacity. Now on the market, the 2018 Giusto di Notri comes together with seamless beauty. This is a rich and generous expression that delivers dark fruit intensity with blackberry and black currant, wrapped tightly together with ample oak notes of spice, tar and cured tobacco. The wine offers smooth transition and rich textural fiber, with soft angles and contours that frame the wine's full-bodied approach. Drink: 2022-2040. (Jan 2021)"

96 points James Suckling: "A rich, layered red with berries, chocolate and blueberries. Lightly smoky. It’s full-bodied and layered with ripe tannins. Balanced and focused. Just a baby now, but will deliver! Best after 2023. (6/22/20)"

95 points Susan Hulme, MW (Decanter): "This 2018 Giusto dei Notri seems delightfully Cabernet Franc-like, although that variety is usually the minor player in the blend. Intense cassis and leafy notes intertwine, while on the palate more concentrated blackcurrant, green herb, elegant cedar and sweet spice flavours mingle with iron and mineral notes. I love the slightly sappy Bordeaux-like notes here and there. A beautifully elegant and persistent wine. Drinking Window: 2021-2027. (Feb 2021)"

94 points Falstaff: "Dark shining, rich garnet. Expressive nose of ripe berry fruit, bright spice, very rich cherry, raspberry, slightly earthy undertone, complex. On the palate flattering red berry, opens promptly and clearly, still young, pleasantly spicy undertone, complex and with serious drinking appeal. (8/27/20)"
