Another great Brunello from Lisini – the 2012 vintage was superb for richness and texture. Having said that, Lisini concentrate on a traditional style in which ripe red and dark fruit with florals and cured meat nuances wrap around a structure of fresh acid and ripe but sturdy tannins. This sense of body is helped by the iron richness in the sandy clay-silt soils, which lie at 300-350 metres of altitude. With a proper density and structure, but also heaps of natural finesse and unfolding complexity, this is a Brunello treasure and great value at this price.
95/100 International Wine Report, February 2017 (2012 Vintage)
"The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino is an excellent showing from Lisini in this vintage. This classicly styled Brunello slowly opens to beautiful aromas of fresh red cherries and plums, which are nuanced by pretty florals, spices and hints of leather notes all coming together beautifully. Medium to full-bodied, refined and well-structured with fine, silky tannins and a long, lingering finish of red fruits and spices make this completely compelling. While this is already displaying plenty of early appeal, it will require a bit more bottle age before it begins to hit its stride. Drink 2019 - 2030."
94/100 Wine Enthusiast (2012 Vintage)
"At once powerful and graceful, this delivers alluring aromas and flavours of ripe black cherry, raspberry compote, grilled herb, licorice and an intriguing tarry note. Fresh acidity and firm, velvety tannins provide balance and structure, while a hint of pipe tobacco closes the lingering finish. Drink 2020 - 2032."
94/100 Wine Spectator (2012 Vintage)
"This is round, exuding black cherry and blackberry flavours, allied to a pliable profile. The acidity and tannins emerge on the finish, where everything falls into place. Fine freshness, tobacco and mineral details emerge in the end. Drink 2020 - 2033."
91/100 Monica Larner, Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate (2012 Vintage)
"Lisini has created a very respectable expression of Sangiovese. The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino is rich and intense both in terms of appearance and bouquet. Aromas peel back with delicate layers of dark fruit, pressed rose petal, baking spice and grilled herb. The wine is not overtly rich or opulent. Yet, it delivers a steady approach in terms of mouthfeel and texture. Drink 2017 - 2028."
17/20 Walter Speller, JancisRobinson.com (2012 Vintage)
"Tasted blind. Healthy mid ruby. Fine, perfumed and focused nose with a little lift. Quite pure, concentrated and embryonic fruit on the palate. Great balance and style and with wonderful bite and length. Drink 2019 - 2028."
