This superstar super-Tuscan is a blockbuster! Rich, concentrated and muscular, yet wonderfully balanced with deep tiers of cherry, plums and wild berries, and nuances of spice and currants. A long flavorful aftertaste echoes with juicy fruit and mouthwatering tannins for minutes afterwards. Blend: 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc.

95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2015 Picconero Tenuta Montebello is a blend of 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc that pours out lots of dark fruit and plum. This is a very nice, juicy and balanced wine with good thickness, a great match for iron steak and blue cheese butter sauce. In general, I've found these wines from Tolini to be top notch, with succulent tones of ripe fruit and pretty intensity. This one is at the top of the pyramid, and I'm guessing 2016 in particular could be even better.
