Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
"Bright ruby. Subtly perfumed aromas of red cherry, dark plum, violet, mint and sweet spices. Smooth, sexy and sweet on the palate, with harmonious acidity giving a light touch to the ripe red fruit, mineral and mocha flavors. Perhaps best today on the very long aftertaste, which features serious but ripe tannins and lingering rich, ripe red and black fruit flavors. This is one of the stars of the vintage and is much better than the Brunello normale; it's everything you could ask of a Brunello in 2008. "

Robert Parker The Wine Advocate
"The estate's top selection, the 2008 Brunello di Montalcino Madonna delle Grazie is plush, rich and authoritative. At the same time, though, it isn't materially better or more complex than the straight bottling, but rather a darker wine with bolder, bigger texture. Rose petals, licorice, sweet red berries and game linger on the powerful, incisive finish. Anticipated maturity: 20152028."

Wine Spectator
"Exhibits fine purity and definition, with cherry, raspberry and floral flavors. Tightens up on the finish, revealing plenty of sweet fruit and a metallic element on the long aftertaste. Best from 2016 through 2035. 100 cases imported."

Wine Enthusiast
"This Brunello Selezione epitomizes the clean, polished and easygoing style of the 2008 vintage. The wine shows a savory side with aromas of cured meat and dried herb, as well as a bold fruit side with plush cherry and blackberry. The acidity is high, but is also balanced out by its natural density and rich texture."
