95 pts Wine Spectator - Supple, laced with cherry, strawberry, floral and graphite flavors, this is elegant and harmonious, with a solid base of tannins for support. Still needs time to resolve itself, yet finds a nice balance in the end. Best from 2021 through 2036.
93 pts James Suckling - A subtle and refined Brunello on the nose with flower and raspberry character. Medium to full body, ultra-fine tannins and a long and caressing finish. All in finesse and beauty. Drink now.
93+ pts Vinous - Dark bright ruby-red. Black plums, chocolate, underbrush and tobacco on the intense nose. Then deep and very dense; a rich core of dark fruit is camouflaged by a strong tannic spine and repeating concentrated notes of dark chocolate. Finishes long, but with mounting, slightly tough tannins. This is a huge, massive wine that needs to develop a little more grace and refinement to become truly stellar. Forget about it in the cellar for the next eight years or so and see if it smoothens out. The 2012 Brunello Poggio Doria was spectacular, so this wine hopefully has the stuffing to digest all the oak it comes equipped with. 
92 pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - With only 3,000 bottles produced, the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigneto Poggio Doria is the top-shelf expression presented by the historic Tenute Silvio Nardi estate. This is a darkly concentrated and elaborate wine that displays some of the extra color and fleshiness that comes courtesy of the warmer growing conditions and dry summer of 2012. The aromas are broad, flat and powerful. More than nuanced complexity, the wine delivers a confident and direct dose of flavor intensity that is lasting and long.

Winemaker Notes

Ruby red color with garnet highlights. Ample and highly complex flavors at the nose develop then to mineral notes of graphite, fruity tones of red berries and spicy aromas of clove and vanilla. Long and balanced at the palate, smooth and persistent notes bring to to the elegant end characterized by present and velvety tannins.
