Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Brunello di Montalcino lives up to the impeccable reputation garnered by this estate over the years. This is a profound and beautifully rendered Sangiovese that delivers bold and luscious fruit quality with black cherry and spicy plum at the start. The bouquet follows through with mild oak notes of smoke, tar and toasted nut. There is another aromatic component that includes crushed stone and dried herb or mint. This Brunello shows elegant evolution in the glass and promises a very long aging future ahead. Some 200,000 bottles were made, so it should be easy to locate this excellent wine.

Wine EnthusiastTobacco, underbrush and new leather aromas come together on the nose. The full-bodied palate offers dried black cherry, star anise, clove and a hint of espresso alongside taut, fine-grained tannins. Drink after 2023.
