95 Points James Suckling - Intense aromas of flowers and dark cherries. Perfumed and bright for the vintage. Full-bodied and firm with chewy yet polished tannins and a succulent and fruity finish that is in line and framed.

94 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - The Valdicava 2017 Brunello di Montalcino shows a soft level of vintage ripeness that translates into dried strawberry or cooked cherry. These nuances are delicate and fine, however, and they are mitigated by the wine's acidity and the general clarity of the bouquet. Compared to past vintages, this 2017 is more accessible, but Valdicava has never been short on elegance or pedigree. Even that accessibility I mention is relative, because these wines have an excellent track record for longevity despite vintage variation.

91 Points Wine Spectator - Plum and cherry compote flavors are shaded by hints of green olive and sage in this dense red, which is backed by firm, dusty tannins, ending with lingering notes of iron and tobacco. Best from 2024 through 2038.
