The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino is elegant, balanced and bright. The pretty luminosity of the wine's appearance helps to underline this positive impression. The bouquet is nuanced and layered with dried fruit aromas that segue to spice, tar and balsam herb. You get sassy aromas of licorice, tar and cola on the close.

This opens with intriguing aromas of smoke, grilled herb, pressed violet and a whiff of strawberry compote. The luminous, savory palate doles out crushed raspberry, juicy Marasca cherry, clove and licorice alongside bright acidity and taut, ultrarefined tannins. A saline note lingers on the close. It's ethereally elegant and will age well for years. Drink 2021-2033.

Camphor and eucalyptus aromas and flavors mingle with cherry, vanilla, earth and milk chocolate notes in this dense, beefy red. Muscular tannins line the finish. Stays fresh and long. Best from 2021 through 2033.
