95 points Susan Hulme MW (The Wine Independent): "This 2018 Val di Suga Brunello di Montalcino has a softly sweet and fragrant nose with a little flowers and very enticing, ripe strawberries and crunchy strawberries that are just on the point of ripeness. There is a gentle sweet spice of oak enveloping the wine but it is subtle and understated. On the palate it is smooth, medium-full bodied with a lovely texture and weight and a gentle twist of chalky, tannins on the finish. The finish is lingering and beautifully handled in this vintage. For this producer and all three of the wines that I have tasted from them in 2018 it feels like they have taken some giant steps forward for this year and that they have done a great job in this 2018 vintage. Drink: 2023-2037. (Feb 2023)"

95 points Audrey Frick (JebDunnuck.com): "The 2018 Brunello Di Montalcino is gorgeous and distinctive in its style, with a smoky perfume of incense, rose petal, tarragon, and vibrant red cherry or red raspberry. On the palate, it is medium-bodied, with refined tannins, fresh acidity, and a saline, stony mouthfeel. A lovely wine just full of graceful elegance and polish, its notes of cedar, orange zest, and fresh soil all come together seamlessly. This is an absolutely gorgeous wine for readers seeking a Burgundian aesthetic. Drink: 2025-2040. (Mar 2023)"
