Eric Guido (VINOUS), on the 2016 Brunello vintage:
"If I had to think of one way to universally describe the majority of wines from the 2016 vintage, I would offer that they are like a well-muscled black stallion in its prime. They are dark yet radiant, expressive, nearly explosive at times, yet pure, poised and structured. These are wines that capture your imagination; and no matter how youthfully tense they are today, you simply can’t help but revisit a glass over and over again; because in many cases, the aromatics alone are intoxicating. I frankly cannot remember the last time I tasted young wines from Montalcino that possessed such symmetry from start to finish. The best part is that this success was widely spread throughout the region; and while there was a mix of the bad, the good and the otherworldly, finding a solidly performing bottle of 2016 Brunello di Montalcino won’t be difficult for any consumer.”
 
Susan Hulme, Master of Wine:
“So, where does 2016 sit, in particular in relation to what many critics feel was the vintage of the decade, the 2010? Like 2010, ’16 was relatively cool, with a longer ripening season, ensuring complete physiological ripeness. The wines from both vintages are beautifully balanced, with ripe fruit and a classically firm structure. But for me, the best 2016s embody an extra leap forward in quality with regards to the finesse and quality of the tannins, which have a special seamless quality, even in wines so young.”
