91 Points & #52 Top 100 Wines of 2016 - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"A thick texture carries plum tart, orange peel, toasted vanilla and anise flavors in this ripe version, balanced by juicy acidity. The spicy, berry-scented finish is long and pure. Drink now through 2023. 10,800 cases imported." — TM (Dec. 31, 2016)

96 Points & #16 of Top 100 of 2016 - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Unctuous and ripe, showing mouthfilling flavors of almond cream, ginger, heather honey and apricot, this will need time to unwind fully, but when it does, expect more pineapple, maple and singed orange notes, as this has some depth and power in reserve, as well as more than enough cut for balance. A beauty in the making. Best from 2018 through 2038. 2,833 cases made." - JM (Mar 31, 2016)

93 Points - Antonio Galloni:
"Monsanto's 2012 Chianti Classico Riserva 50 Vendemmie is one of the most pedigreed wines of the year. Deep and resonant in the glass, but not at all heavy, the 2012 possesses magnificent complexity to match what I can only describe as a regal expression of Sangiovese. There is a level of purity and nuance to the 2012 that is hard to describe with words but that is very much front and center. Moreover, I can't think of too many wines from any region anywhere in the world that offer this level of quality for the money. Readers will not want to miss this stellar Riserva from Monsanto. Can the 2012 Il Poggio be better? We'll know in two years' time." - Antonio Galloni (July 2015)

"Finely crafted, with touches of elegance and plenty of freshness to the plum, cherry tart and boysenberry flavors, accented by forest floor notes. Mineral and spice details fill the lively finish. Drink now through 2019. 7,500 cases made." - KM (Sep 30, 2015)

92 Points - Stephen Tanzer:
"(fermented in a combination of French oak barrels and stainless steel tanks, then aged in French oak for ten months before bottling): Bright violet color. Heady, exotically perfumed bouquet of ripe red and dark berries, incense and candied flowers, with a smoky mineral overtone and a hint of Asian spices. Intense, deeply pitched raspberry liqueur and cherry-cola flavors stain the palate while displaying a distinctly vibrant quality. Blends power, depth and finesse in a way that's uncommon at anywhere near this price point. Closes sweet, supple and very long, with velvety tannins coming in late to add shape and gentle grip. These bush vines date back to the early 1920s and yield less than two tons of fruit per acre." - Josh Raynolds (September 2015)

"Pear, peach and quince flavors mingle in this expressive white, while notes of mineral, tangerine and ginger add complexity. Shows depth and focus, with a clean, juicy finish. Drink now. 1,800 cases imported." — TM (Dec. 31, 2016)

90 Points & #91 Top 100 Wines of 2016 - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"An elegant version, with Asian five-spice powder and cherry blossom notes wafting through flavors of black raspberry preserves, bresaola and cured tobacco. Long and supple, presenting a mineral-tinged finish. Carignano, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Drink now through 2021. 12,500 cases made." — AN

91 Points - Stephen Tanzer:
"Deep ruby. Enticing aromas of flint, underbrush, wild herbs and red cherry on the spicy nose. Then rich, deep and dense with polished tannins and a multilayered and surprisingly complex personality for this wine. Finishes with outstanding length and noteworthy grip, while featuring a leafy echo that adds further complexity. One of the most refined versions of Montessu I’ve ever had. This is a complex blend of Carignano, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah." - Ian D'Agata (August 2016)

96 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine (2013 Vintage):
"Dark and brooding, this has a deep well of black currant, fig and bitter plum fruit in reserve, shrouded for now in smoldering charcoal, bay leaf and alder notes. Tapenade and tar details hang in the background. Offers a steel beam of a finish. Tuck this away in the back corner of your cellar. Best from 2020 through 2035. 1,438 cases made." - JM (Web Only - 2016)

90 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (2010 Vintage):
"Light gold, with a hint of onion skin. High-pitched aromas of lemon, fresh fig and green apple are complemented by a deeper hint of floral honey. Dry, focused and refreshingly bitter, with suave nectarine and candied citrus flavors lifted by zesty acidity. Finishes clean and nervy, with echoing spiciness and very good persistence." - Josh Raynolds (Nov '11)
