"A dusty Brunello with dried berries, walnuts, caramelized orange, felt-tip pen and dried tobacco. Full-bodied and warming on the palate, which reveals a sweet-and-sour character, created by the interplay of solid acidity and dried fruit."

Tre Stelle Oro - Veronelli Guide 2021
"The 2015 Voliero Brunello is a weighty, meaty effort but that doesn’t prevent it from expressing its high toned personality. Sourced from high altitude vineyards in the northern part of the Brunello zone, Voliero often benefits from cool evening temperatures. As a result, the aromatics so important to Sangiovese are replete in this wine.
In the glass, the wine’s color runs the full spectrum from violet, to purple and even displays a copper rim. After being open for about an hour, the wine displays aromas of crushed wild berry, fresh tobacco, red flowers, turned earth and chestnut. It is simply gorgeous. On the palate, that core of wild berry is juicy, sapid and mouth watering. Hints of licorice, coffee and cigar tobacco add complexity to this young wine. I was impressed with this at the Gala (linked above) and this didn’t disappoint. Decant now or let it sit 3 years before trying. 95 points and I think it will go higher."
