Description

Winemaker Notes

Intense ruby red with a garnet hue. The nose opens to notes of red and black berries, spices and herbs. The palate is full-bodied and fruity, with a consistent, dense and perfectly balanced tannin, followed by balsamic notes and a long, harmonious and gradual finish.

Critical Acclaim

RP93 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino offers a plump and cherry-rich bouquet that is youthful and vibrant at this young stage. You really get a sense of the tonic fruit that is achieved in this cooler vintage. Wild cherry aromas segue to violets, roses and medicinal herbs. You'll love all that special detailing. Yet the wine also shows a thick and firm texture that would benefit from another 3-5 years of cellar aging.
 
JS93 James Suckling
Huge fruitcake nose but there's nothing heavy or exaggerated about this. Massive and lush palate with serious tannins behind it. Very long and rather complex finish. With a touch less sweetness, this would rate even more highly. Drink in 2020.
 
WS93 Wine Spectator
An alluring expression of sweet cherry, strawberry, rose and mineral aromas and flavors is the hallmark of this red. Balanced and elegant, with a juicy feel and supporting structure, this lingers with tobacco, giving a mouthwatering impression. Best from 2020 through 2035. 700 cases made.
