95 Points, Jeb Dunnuck

The 2016 Brunello was aged for 30 months in Slavonian and French oak barrels. Perfumed and lifted with fresh raspberry fruit, roses, sweet herbs, and dusty earth, with a delicate concentration of color, the palate is medium-bodied, with refined tannin’s and notes of fresh red cherry, orange zest, and clove. This is a beautifully elegant expression and lovely work by Andrea Cortonesi that I look forward to revisiting over the next 15 years.

Aromas of flowers, plums, cedar and violets follow through to a full body with firm, silky tannins that show plush fruit that’s pure and focused. Hints of orange peel, too. Fresh. Persistent at the end. Drink after 2023.

94 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

The Voliero 2016 Brunello di Montalcino opens to rich, fruity fiber with aromas of dark fruit, blackberry preserves, red brick and scorched earth. This is a saturated and accessible expression from Montalcino to enjoy in the near or medium-term with a nice steak and grilled porcino mushrooms. The grapes are fermented in steel with indigenous yeasts and aged in Slavonian oak.

This opens with intense aromas of rose, crushed mint and forest floor. Vibrant and full bodied, the palate shows sour cherry, cranberry and roasted coffee bean set against fine-grained, drying tannins. It closes on a salty note while fresh acidity keeps it and balanced. Drink 2023–2028.
