90 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"Pale bright yellow. Fresh aromas of mirabelle, nectarine, tangerine, minty herbs and crushed stone. Quite dry, juicy and elegant, featuring stone fruit and mineral flavors sexed up by a flinty nuance on the end. Still a bit youthfully tight, but this is a marvelous Gentil, the best I remember from Hugel in years. It’s a delicious, lovely, fresh wine that, though not the last word in complexity, is easygoing and full of early appeal. A very complex blend of Sylvaner, Riesling, Pinot Blanc/Auxerrois, and Pinot Gris, plus a little Gewürztraminer, Muscat Ottonel and Muscat d’Alsace; 40 years ago Gentil used to be at least 40% Sylvaner but in recent times the blend of Pinot Blanc and Auxerrois had taken over, to my mind one of the main reasons for Gentil’s downfall. What one wants from a Gentil is mineral florality and freshness, not heavy-handed, honeyed and spicy aromas and flavors." - Ian D'Agata (Apr 2018)

89 Points - Antonio Galloni:
"The 2013 Il Ghizzano is a soft, open-knit wine to enjoy in its youth, while the flavors remain fresh. Crushed flowers, cherries, licorice and menthol open up effortlessly. Hopefully the gracious, polished Ghizzano is a sign of things to come in the estate's flagship 2013s." - Antonio Galloni (July 2015)

90 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous Media:
"Extremely light pink. Fresh, mineral-accented aromas of raspberry, white peach and musky flowers on the perfumed nose. Juicy and focused on the palate; lively red berry, pit fruit and honeysuckle flavors show a lithe, mineral-driven personality. On the distinctly graceful side, finishing with repeating florality and stony persistence." - Josh Raynolds (May 2016)

91+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"I loved the textbook 2012 Señorío de P. Peciña Crianza, which has the usual house blend of Tempranillo with 3% Garnacha and 2% Graciano; it was fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and matured in used American oak barrels for some 24 months with hand racking every six months. It has a great balance between age and youth, modernity and tradition, fruit and spice, balsam and freshness. The palate feels polished, with resolved tannins and very god balance. A great improvement over previous vintages. 100,000 bottles produced." - Luis Gutiérrez (30th Aug 2016)

91 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous Media:
"Light gold. Fresh melon, pear nectar and Meyer lemon aromas are complemented by suggestions of honey and smoky lees. Silky and appealingly sweet on the palate, showing very good focus and cut to the juicy, spice-tinged citrus and orchard fruit flavors. A subtle touch of salty minerality comes up on the finish, which clings with strong tenacity and repeating pear and spice notes." - Josh Raynolds (Nov 2017)

91 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"(aged for four months in used French oak barriques): Bright violet color. Vibrant black raspberry and cherry-cola aromas, with suggestions of spicecake and candied violet adding complexity. Sappy, penetrating black and blue fruit flavors are enlivened by hints of cracked pepper and smoky minerals that build slowly on the back half. The incisive, gently sweet, very persistent finish leaves an appealing floral pastille note behind." - Josh Raynolds (Jan 2016)

Notes from the Winemaker:.
This is one domaine that takes great pride in its Rosso, treating it much like the Brunello. Pieri is the only producer ever to earn Gambero Rosso’s prestigious Tre Bicchieri score for a “mere” Rosso di Montalcino.
That wine, the 1995, caused a sensation with its amazing concentration and persistence—it easily outpaced most Brunellos and set a new benchmark for the appellation. And, always looking to push his wines further, Francesco has begun collaborating with Fabrizio Moltard for the 2002 vintage. Together, they aim to enhance the expressive sense of place that a unique vineyard, and unique appellation, can produce.
