93 Points from Wine Spectator
"Packed with ripe cherry, strawberry, floral and mineral aromas and flavors, this red is charming and harmonious. Already approachable, with refined tannins that should be absorbed in the short term. Fine length. Best from 2022 through 2038." 04/20 B.S.

"Bright dark red. Faded flowers, sweet spices and red cherry aromas dominate the inviting nose. Enters clean, light on its feet and fresh, then chunkier in the middle with similar flavors to the aromas. The long finish features a strong balsamic note. A lovely wine." 4/20 I.D.
Brunello di Montalcino from Le Macioche is a singular wine. Produced from 100% organically managed mature Sangiovese vines planted in the early 1980's, Le Macioche Brunello is fermented by indigenous yeasts in stainless steel tanks. The wine undergoes malolactic conversion and ageing in 30HL Slavonian oak casks before being bottled unfiltered. With a brilliant ruby core, and exceptional elegance complementing its ample power, this is as close to a Burgundian expression as Montalcino gets." "Tasting Notes Brunello di Montalcino from Le Macioche is ripe and supple. Aromas of dried berries, plum, and sour cherry mix with hints of oak, sweet spice, and leather. This powerful red wine is held in perfect harmony by an undercurrent of brilliant acidity and a structure of firm yet ripe tannins paired against. A substantial wine without ever feeling heavy. The finish is long, balanced, and complex. Food Pairing Brunello di Montalcino is a wine that may be best enjoyed on its own as an object of contemplation and pleasure. Of course, it will also pair exceptionally well with a variety of hearty main course dishes ranging from the rustic to the refined. Meat is not mandatory, but wild game and fowl are traditional."
