94 points, "Originally from Corsica, Pierre Jean Monnoyer farms his small 4.5-hectare estate organically in the Val d’Orcia. Only 3000 bottles were produced from the single hectare plot dedicated to Brunello. The 2015 Casa Raia Brunello di Montalcino is traditional and pleasantly rustic, with aromas of saddle leather, sour cherry fruit, lavender and Mediterranean herbs. The palate has generosity that speaks to the warmth of the vintage, with sun-kissed raspberry, tomato leaf, and clove. The wine has classic structure, though the acidity is tempered by the vintage. This lovely and charming red is a joy to drink now or over the next 10 years." - Jeb Dunnuck
