91 points Wine Spectator: "This big, blockbuster style of Brunello has loads of fruit and vanilla character. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long finish. A big juicy wine that needs time. Best after 2009." K&L's notes - Mario Bollag, the former owner of Il Palazzone, has created a tremendous new property in the southeastern corner of Montalcino near Castelnuovo dell'Abate. He has selected a tremendous new terroir bathed in a glorious sunny southern exposure. The 2001 vintage is spectacular and will prove to be one of the best vintages in the last decade, yes even better than the 1997 in my opinion. Only 3000 bottles will be available in the US for this vintage. (Greg St.Clair, K&L's Italian buyer) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Jul/Aug 06 "Deep, full red. Sexy aromas of plum, spices, tobacco, chocolate, mocha and graphite. Sweet, fresh and juicy in the mouth, with bright acids giving shape and grip to the complex flavors of berry preserves, plum and tobacco. Finishes firm and persistent, with suave tannins."
