Description

Wine Enthusiast 96 Points 
Delicious and full-bodied, this offers aromas of pine forest, spiced plum, leather and fragrant purple flowers. On the enveloping palate, noble tannins support ripe Morello cherry, raspberry jam and baking spice before a licorice close. Drink 2027–2032.

Decanter 94 Points
Located in the southern reaches of the Montalcino zone, near Sant’Angelo in Colle, Lisini is one of the last in the area to harvest. The wines are full-figured, sumptuous and densely packed yet remain wondrously light on their feet. The 2017, which was harvested between the end of September and beginning of October, is no exception. Dripping with ripe cherries and plums, it is a seductive, rather fruit-driven wine shored up by luscious acidity. Clayey tannins wrap around the palate with an iron grip and just a hint of dryness is absorbed by plush, pulpy fruit. This is hard to resist now. Drinking Window 2023 - 2030

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 92 Points
The Lisini 2017 Brunello di Montalcino (with 30,000 bottles made) has some of the baked blackberry aromas and cherry liqueur that are characteristics of this dry and hot growing season. The wine opens to a darkly saturated appearance, and it follows up with tarry smoke, licorice root, crushed stone and potting soil. The wine's personality reflects autumnal flavors of forest floor and balsam herb.

Wine Spectator 92 Points
A rich version, this red reveals cherry, raspberry, rose, mineral and wild herb aromas and flavors, backed by a solid matrix of tannins. Firms up on the finish, yet remains fresh and long, echoing the red fruit and wild herb notes. Best from 2024 through 2042.
