The Ignaccio reviewed on the Australian site Blackhearts & Sparrows

At least once, not the Il Marroneto Brunellos under the spotlight, but the Rosso di Montalcino Ignaccio, moreover a label that distinguishes itself within the category because of structure and ambition (not by chance it is released on the market one year later than the rules of the “disciplinare” consent).
