87+/100 Punkte Robert Parker, Jan 31, 2017 Coming from a south-facing, 60-are vineyard on deep marl soils situated at 420 meters above sea level, the 2015 Pinot Blanc opens with ripe tropical fruit aromas intermixed with new oak and stirred yeast flavors. Fermented in stainless steel and oak vats, but aged in new and used barriques until the bottling in May, this is a full-bodied, round and very aromatic Pinot Blanc; it has a smooth acidity and an elegant texture. The 2015 is still made-up and lacks the purity and finessed freshness of a great wine, but the round and smooth-textured mouthfeel will be really pleasant for many consumers. The finish reveals a good grip and salinity, so the wine may improve with bottle age.
90/100 Punkte Robert Parker, Oct 31, 2018 The 2016 Tre is 80% Sangiovese with 10% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. The combination of those three grapes makes for a well-priced entry-level Tuscan red that would pair nicely with pasta or spicy sausage pizza. This is a soft and simple mid-weight wine with a bright bouquet that is colored with vibrant tones of dark fruit, spice and grilled herb. The quality of the fruit in this classic vintage is what pushes this value wine up to an exciting 90-point threshold.
88/100 Punkte Robert Parker Dec 30, 2016 The 2014 Dorando is a 100% Malcantone Chardonnay fermented in concrete eggs and wooden vats. The citrus-colored wine opens with a clear, fresh and pretty intense bouquet of ripe white fruit, melon, lime and kumquat flavors. Medium-bodied, round and fresh on the palate this is an elegant, well-structured and nicely salty food wine, with an excellent phenolic grip and tension. Ginger flavors in the good aftertaste. The 2014 is still young, but perfect with all kinds of fish and white meats.
90/100 Punkte Vinous Jan 2018 The 2015 Tre, Brancaia's Sangiovese-based red, is bold, racy and super-expressive. A rush of black cherry, smoke, tobacco and licorice infuse this open-knit, inviting wine before Sangiovese aromatics appear on the finish to add lift. Drink it over the next few years.
91/100 Punkte Falstaff, November 2017 Glänzendes Rubin mit hellem Rand. Duftige, ansprechende Nase mit ausgeprägten Noten nach saftiger Kirsche, Zwetschke und Brombeere. Saftig und geradlinig am Gaumen, zeigt schöne Kirschfrucht, herzhaft und mit guter Länge.
89/100 Punkte Robert Parker October 2017 The 2015 Chianti Classico Brolio is made with 80% Sangiovese that has been enhanced by 15% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine ages in barrique and tonneaux for up to nine months. This is a bright and fruit-forward wine that imparts aromas of plump cherry and cassis. With 730,000 bottles made, this is a good value option that should be relatively easy to locate at your nearest wine merchant.
90/100 Punkte Vinous Feb 2019 The 2016 Chianti Classico Brolio is a very pretty wine. Perfumed floral notes and silky tannins complement the bright, red-tone fruit nicely in this pretty, expressive mid-weight Chianti Classico. The freshness speaks to the personality of the year. This is very nicely done.
92/100 Punkte James Suckling, December 2016 A deep and beautiful nose of ripe strawberries and hints of dried flowers and soft spices. Medium-bodied with medium, juicy and soft tannins and a long, fresh and fruity finish. Drink now.
89/100 Punkte Wine Spectator Apr 30, 2016 Leather, smoke and black olive notes are layered with boysenberry coulis and cocoa powder flavors in this elegant red. Medium-bodied and silky in texture, with fine-grained tannins showing on the minerally finish. Gaglioppo, Magliocco Canino and others. Drink now through 2021.
90/100 Punkte Falstaff Aufregender Duft von Hopfen, Hefe, Grapefruit und Physalis. Vegetale Kräuternoten, Salbei, Sauerampfer und Bachminze klingen an. Klare, famos frische Riesling-Frucht und kühl-leitende Säureader. Salzig-steiniger Nachhall.
