93 points James Suckling: "A racy, fine-tuned Chianti Classico with blackberry, black-cherry and wet-earth aromas. Medium-bodied with medium polished tannins and a long finish. Transparent. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold. (10/27/20)"

92 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2018 Chianti Classico is a gorgeous, mid-weight wine that captures the essence of the estate's high-altitude vineyards. Freshly cut flowers, sweet red berries, licorice, mint, pine and cedar are some of the many aromas and flavors that are woven throughout. The 2018 is gracious, inviting and impeccable in its balance. Drink: 2020-2030. (Sep 2020)"

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "[$25 list] Made with organic grapes, this has vinous aromas of freshly pressed grapes that mingle with whiffs of wild berry, moist earth and violet. It's bright and savory, offering Marasca cherry, blood orange and rusty nail alongside lithe tannins and vibrant acidity. Drink through 2025. Alcohol 14%. (Nov 2020)"
