  • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2010 ♣ ♣ ♣ ♣ (XXL)

  • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2010 90
    This full-bodied red features aromas of underbrush, tilled soil, dark berry, new leather and a whiff of game. The concentrated palate offers ripe black cherry, licorice, mocha and a note of pipe tobacco alongside firm, velvety tannins. It’s already ripe and accessible but will also age well for the next decade at least. Drink 2016– 2025.   K.O.  (5/1/2015)
  • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2007 RISERVA 92

    Generous, with tertiary aromas of cured meat, leather and tobacco, this is a spicy and savory Brunello riserva that offers more in terms of black pepper, crushed mineral, licorice and prune than it does fresh berry fruit. But that’s not a problem whatsoever because those beautifully aged flavors give the wine a sophisticated twist.  M.L.  (5/1/2013)


  • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2008 88
    This Brunello presents mature aromas of cured meat and old spice behind a pulpy berry profile. The acidity is biting and sharp and presents a strange juxtaposition against the roundness of the cherry fruit flavors.  M.L.  (5/1/2013)
  • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2007 89
    A classic Brunello with a savory, aged quality that exudes sophistication and elegance. Dried fruit, cassis, spice, old leather and rum cake form the bouquet. The wine is finely textured, sharp and clean in the mouth. Seems aged, savory and austere.  M.L.  (5/1/2012)
  • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2006 RISERVA 91
    This Brunello has a warm, earthy personality embodied by its wild mushroom, leather, tobacco and ripe fruit notes. There’s crème de cassis and cherry liqueur as well. The wine’s mouthfeel is bright and crisp. M.L. (5/1/2012)
  • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2004 RISERVA 91
    Austere and elegant with ethereal tones of Spanish cedar, cherry cola, eucalyptus and licorice, this Brunello represents some of vintage 2004’s best qualities. The wine is elegant and tempered yet determined and enduring in the mouth. Pair it with pork rolled with prunes.  M.L.  (10/1/2010)

  • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2010 91
    The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino sees a classic winemaking formula of 12 months in stainless steel, 36 months in large Slavonian oak casks and 12 months in bottle. It is that steady care, executed over five years, that gives this wine its smooth and tempered personality. The Brunello shows power and muscle with red fruit aromas, spice, dark smoke and cured meat. This is a wine with wide shoulders and a large frame. It offers moderate complexity but presents a united aromatic front. Drink this Brunello after 2017. Roberto Terzuoli's eight hectare estate is located in the northeastern part of the Brunello appellation and has south facing vines planted at 300 meters above sea level. The family uses large oak cask for making classic Brunello.

  • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2009 89 pt.
    Sweet dark cherries, plums, menthol, tobacco, violets and dried flowers are some of the notes that take shape in the 2009 Brunello di Montalcino 2009. The 2009 stands out for its persistence and solid overall balance.  2014 - 2017
  • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2008 Riserva 89 pt.
    SassodiSole’s 2008 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is juicy, open and resonant. Dark red plums, French oak, menthol and spices melt together in an expressive, juicy Brunello with good immediacy. Today the French oak is a bit pronounced, and it don’t see the oak integrating in a meaningful way during what is likely to be a relatively short drinking window for this 2008 Riserva.  2014 - 2019

    Forward but structured, it delivers underbrush, leather and dark fruit aromas punctuated with hints of orange rind and spice. The palate offers fleshy black raspberry and red cherry sprinkled with white pepper, licorice and a note of mocha alongside firm but round tannins. Drink now–2017. K.O.

  • THE WINE ADVOCATE (Robert Parker) 2014

  • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2007 Riserva 91 pt.
    SassodiSole pulls its winemaking prowess seamlessly together with the 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva. Although its drinking window may not be as wide as other wines from this classic vintage, this specific wine is already starting to come into its prime. Its appearance is dark and austere and there’s plenty of ripe fruit and dried spice to keep your attention. The wine also shows a pretty evolution in the glass, spanning from dried cherry to root beer to black licorice. Don’t wait too long to enjoy this upfront wine. Drink: 2015-2020
  • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2009 89 pt.
    The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino reveals evolved aromas of cured meat and dried berry backed by tobacco leaf and grilled herb. The mouth feel is mild, both in terms of impact and acidity (this can be said of many wines from the 2009 vintage), but those pretty balsam notes of cola and rosemary oil give the bouquet a sense of lift and buoyancy. Drink: 2016-2020.
  • Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2011 88+ pt.
    The 2011 Rosso di Montalcino is a fine Rosso with a surprising level of sophistication and charm for a base level wine from this storied appellation. The wine reveals lovely layers of dried cherry and sweet spice that give it an immediate and approachable style. Pair it with pasta and your favorite homemade sauce. Drink: 2014-2017.
  • SassodiSole is a 45-hectare estate located in the less-explored Torrenieri quadrant of the appellation in the far northeast corner. Vineyards are planted between 280 and 320 meters above sea level with south-facing exposures and limestone soils. It is farmed by Roberto Terzuoli and his family.

  • Rosso Di Montalcino DOC 2011 87 pt.
    Bright red with a garnet rim. Smoked beef and peppery herbs on the nose, with redcurrant and violet notes emerging with aeration. More bacon and grilled pork belly notes on the palate, complementing ripe but delicate flavors of red cherry and flowers. Finishes clean, with bright acidity, polished tannins and repeating floral and redcurrant notes. I find this too oaky: the strong smoky, saline aromas and flavors are not for me.
  • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2008 90+ pt.
    Good, full ruby-red. Red Cherry, strawberry, spicecake and licorice on the inviting nose. Supple and sweet, with sneaky intensity to the red fruit and sweet spice flavor. In a rather suave, creamy style for 2008, but nicely integrated acidity gives it shape. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and subtle persistence. This strikes me as one of the best young wines I have ever tried from this estate.
  • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2007 Riserva 89+ pt.
    Bright ruby-red. Aromas of cassis, spicecake and coffee, with a strong component of nutty oak and a loamy nuance. Lush, full and sweet, with black fruit, underbrush and inky flavors dominating. The persistent finish features broad, mouthdusting tannins. A very serious wine, but I prefer the fruit and the easy drinking charm of the ’08.
  • THE WINE ADVOCATE (Robert Parker) 2013

  • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2008 89 pt.
    A blast of dark fruit hits the palate as the 2008 Brunello di Montalcino from Sassodisole opens up in the glass. Tar, smoke, licorice, savory herbs and game appear later, contributing to the wine’s dark, brooding personality. Another year or two in bottle should help the tannins soften, even if the 2008 is likely to remain a rather monolithic, rustic wine. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2023. Robert Parker
  • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2007 Riserva 88 pt.
    The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is an immediate wine with good depth and solid overall balance. Crushed flowers, sweet red cherries, licorice and tobacco all meld together in an attractive Brunello best suited for drinking over the next handful of years. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2017. Robert Parker

  • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2008 92 pt.
    This up-and-coming producer has only been bottling its own wines since 2001, but it’s a good example of the strides that are being made in the north-east of the DOCG, possibly thanks to climate change. This is a very fresh, minerally Brunello, with active mid-palate sweetness. Drink: 2024-20.
  • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2007 Riserva 91 pt.
    Typically focused, elegant winemaking, even in 2007, showing crunchy, northern acidity, firmish tannins and plenty of bright red cherry, raspberry and redcurrant fruit the slight firmness will soften in bottle. Drink: 2016-24.

    Come il precedente non ama buttarsi nella mischia, però ha spessore di tutto rispetto (più di Poggio San Paolo), belle capacità di allungo e credo anche discrete prospettive aromatiche. Meglio quindi attendere.
  • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2007 Riserva 89 F pt.
    Mostra fin da subito il suo lato più catramoso e agrumato ma nel farlo ci mette le giusta misura, esaltando il carattere e sfumando le asperità. Un vino dunque espressivo, di giusta forsa e allo stesso tempo godibile.

  • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2006 4 stars - 16pts/20
    Pretty incense and underbrush aromas. Succulent black and red fruit flavors with aggressive teeth-coating tannins that need some time to time.. Drin
  • “Montalcino: time to get in the zone. Dense, compact clay in the northeast can yield excruciatingly tannic wines and once deterred the widespread Sangiovese planting that has recently taken root around Torrenieri. Growers must carefully choose rootstocks and select clones to combat the hostile conditions. The best wines hail from a limited section of hilltop vineyards with better soil, like those made by SassodiSole.”


  • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2006 Riserva 14.6
    Drink 2012-2016. Concentrated ruby with orange rim. Sweetly perfumed with hints of exotic, dry spice. Slightly bitter tannin. Lacks complexity and freshness. (WS)014-2021.

  • Una bella realtà quella guidata da Roberto Terzuoli a Torrenieri a 300 metri di altezza. Le vinificazioni sono classiche, abbastanza lunghe, e maturazione affidata a botti in rovere slavo da 35 ettolitri. BUONISSIMO IL BRUNELLO 2006, dal naso intenso, floreale e fruttato, e dai tannini levigati, con finale persistente.


  • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2006 90 pt
    "Soft and fruity with a decadent and fruity character. Medium to full body, with soft tannins and fruity finish. Should be better in two or three years."

  • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2006 89 pt.
    Drying, sharp tannins bring up the rear and indicate the wine needs time to soften. Aromas include black fruit and cured meat.

    "The 2005 Brunello di Montalcino from SassodiSole is a soft, mid-weight wine with delicate aromatics and a feminine expression of dark cherries and violets.

  • La morbidezza è perno centrale della qualità analitica e sensoriale d'ogni vino. E' bastato così divenir più morbidi ai vini SassodiSole,per farsi assai più piacevolmente apprezzare. Suadenza che è delicata nel Rosso di Montalcino 2007, più carnosamente polposa nell'Orcia 2007, di gran balsamicità e di potenza maestosa nel Brunello di Montalcino 2004. Vino di assai alto valore, focoso al palato, glicerinoso, distillato dall'alcol nella polpa di frutto concentrato e maturo che porge. Ottima la souplesse, ottima la fragranza ossidativa residua nonostante l'evoluzione e la connotazione sul controllato passito del frutto. Dominato da una prugna d'inaudita potenza, è campione di tostata e lunghissima persistenza.


  • L'Orcia Rosso 2007 2 Stelle (vino ottimo)
    L'Orcia Rosso 2007 ha assai ben figurato in degustazione. Grazie ad un affinamento di un anno in botti in rovere di Slavonia, l'Orcia Rosso 2007 offre al naso garbate note speziate e aromi di frutti rossi; al palato è succoso, con tannini dolci.

    WINE ENTHUSIAST - June '09

  • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2004 Score 88
    Here's a cheerful Brunello with offbeat aromas of candid fruit, cherry liqueur and white licorice. It's a ripe and chewy wine (but not exaggeratedly so) with mature aromas of blackberry and sticky Indian spice. Fresh acidity makes the wine pop in the mouth, while releasing bursting berry overtones. - M.L.

    Il miglior vino: ORCIA ROSSO DOC 2006 (Consistenza 31 – Equilibrio 26 – Integrità 26)

    Sensazioni: di ottima dolcezza olfattiva, accoglie con la tepida e cremosa solvenza della sua prugna balsamicamente mentosa. Un vino di gran rango cromatico ed estrattivo, porosamente ramoso al suo denso ed opulento contatto. Lo si vede opaco, lo si sente fitto, lungo, lo si ode persistere potentemente carnoso, mentosamente cioccolatoso. Forza della natura ma anche capacità tecniche di gestione e sviluppo. E la natura sì, con prugna e mora, i suadente, intensa espressione sensitiva.
  • Commento conclusivo: Continua a progredire in valore il bicchiere SassodiSole. La consistenza media rilevata è quella dei vini di caratura superiore e se si svilupperà ancora la morbidezza e il turgore di questi vini, la loro maestosa complessione si rivelerà con effetti sensoriali ancor più virtuosamente intensi e potenzialmente longevi. Fra i migliori del millesimo quanto a scadenza del gusto il Rosso di Montalcino 2006, di gran glicerinosità maestosa il balsamico Brunello di Montalcino 2003. Il migliore è l’Orcia Rosso 2006: qui morbidezza e integrità enologica d’esecuzione si affiancano nette alla sua massa di frutto imponente, alla sua favolosa persistenza speziata espressiva.

The wine's open aromatics and attractive, up-front personality offer much appeal, even if the intensity drops off a bit on the mid-palate. With slightly more polish to the tannins this Brunello might have merited a higher score. Anticipated maturity: 2009 - 2018."
