"Dark skinned berry, forest floor, pipe tobacco, new leather and balsamic notes float out of the glass. On the elegantly structured palate, taut, polished tannins and vibrant acidity frame ripe red cherry, exotic spice and aromatic herb flavors. A lingering star anise note announces the close. Impeccably balanced and loaded with class, its still young and needs time to fully develop." 96/100 WineEnthusiast
"Charming and open, this red exudes cherry, strawberry and rose aromas and flavors. Remains elegant overall despite the firm, ripe tannins underneath. Approachable now, yet this should develop well over the next decade. Best from 2019 through 2032." 94/100 WineSpectator
"Aromas of dried berries, hints of dried mushrooms and spices follow through to a medium body, ultra-fine tannins and a lovely balance and depth of fruit. Finesse here. Drink now." 93/100 James Suckling
"Simonetta Valiani's Le Chiuse shows very nice results in this vintage. The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino opens relatively quickly after being poured into the glass. It opens to soft aromas of ripe cherry and dark fruit with leather, tobacco and spice at the back. The wine is shapely, supple and shows soft contours. This is an approachable Brunello that can easily be consumed in the near-term with local Tuscan dishes or oven-roasted pasta. You could wait to celar-age this wine, but why bother? It drinks very nicely just out of the gate. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027." 92/100 Robert Parker's: The WineAdvocate
