Critical Acclaim

James Suckling
This shows pure and fresh fruit that many others don't have. Also, there are plenty of linear tannins. Precise and beautiful. Medium to full body. Persistent finish. Better in 2019.
Wine Spectator
A bright, cherry-laced red, accented by iron, earth, tar and tobacco notes. Though lean and tight on the finish, this is lively, with a lingering aftertaste of cherry, tobacco and mineral. Best from 2019 through 2032.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Castiglion del Bosco 2012 Brunello di Montalcino exhibits classic lines and aromas that are faithfully characteristic of Tuscany's Sangiovese grape. There's a wild or untamed element with forest berry, underbrush, wild mushroom, lavender, tar and licorice. Balsam herbs also appear with cola and grilled rosemary. There's a lot to keep your attention. The mouthfeel is more streamlined and slightly shorter compared to previous vintages. This seems to be a common trait in 2012 Brunello but it does not make too much of a difference in this case.
Tightly-knit and still youthful, with enticing violet-suffused cherry aromas unfolding onto a tense yet free-flowing palate bristling with pronounced acidity and chalky, dry-edged tannins. Well-done.
Wine Enthusiast
French oak, tobacco and exotic spice aromas emerge in the glass. The firm, full-bodied palate delivers dried black cherry, raspberry compote, vanilla and licorice flavors, framed by assertive but fine-grained tannins. Drink 2020–2027.
