95pts, James Suckling
The rose-petal and dark-berry aromas are very beautiful with some cedar and sandalwood undertones. Full body, very chewy tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Shows lots of tannin structure. Needs to soften with bottle age. Try in 2021.

91pts, Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a dark, rich and plump expression of Sangiovese. It walks with a heavy footprint across the palate. This Riserva is aged first in botte grande and is then transferred to smaller 300-liter barrique to finish off its evolution. This wine shows thick concentration and determined layering with black fruit, smoke and spice. There's a touch of Sangiovese sourness on the close. - Monica Larner

The 2012 vintage is a celebrated one amongst fine wine consumers. Richard Baudains of Decanter says, "It is certainly a powerful vintage…the best have the prerequisites for long-term ageing.” Ian D’Agata of Vinous shares, "The 2012 Brunellos are characterized by impeccable balance, vibrant acidity and fine-grained tannins. They are not especially luscious or fleshy, but they are blessed with precise aromas and flavors of mainly red fruits, blood orange and minerals, and will prove very ageworthy.”

Lucky for you, this wine has been chillin’ like a villain and developing some lovely bottle age where a lot of the power and tannin noted in the vintage when opened a few years ago has started to subside. Don’t get it twisted though, there’s still a lot of life left in this wine to last for another decade or so.

Classic Sangiovese acidity and notes of sour cherries are met with voluptuous blackberries and black cherries with notes of cedar, wood smoke and warm baking spices. Full with tons of body and a pleasant, lingering finish. In other words, it’s flippin’ delicious!

THE STORY TO KNOW

Pecci Celestino farmhouse inherits its name from the owner who, following his passion for farming despite the "project" planned for him by their parents, acquired two farmhouses and a 99 acre piece of land. It was the 1968 when the Pecci Celestino farmhouse history begun, a history full of difficulties and sacrifices but in the end the family persevered and is now producing some of our very favorite, long lived Brunello in the region.
