James Suckling 91 points - This wine is integrated and refined and beckons you to drink it. Character of lemon rind, spices, and chocolate with dried fruits. It’s long and delicious. Drink now.
Wine Spectator 91 points - A complex, savory red, with cherry, plum, cedar, leafy and tobacco notes. A tad dry on the finish, yet remains long and satisfying on the palate. Drink now through 2020. 2,600 cases made.-BS

Vinous 90 points - The 2008 Carmignano Riserva Trefiano is a little silkier and more accessible today than the Villa di Capezzana. Dark red fruits, licorice, flowers, earthiness, tobacco, menthol and new leather are all woven together in a relatively soft wine to drink over the next few years.
