Notes from the Winemaker:

A wonderful long maturing red wine, high expression of the tradition in Montalcino's wines productions. It has an intense ruby colour with burgundy hue and concentrated scent, enveloping, ethereal with hints of black cherry, wild berry and vanilla. The flavour is strong, quite tannic in youth, soft and persistent. Serve at 18°C in large glasses; it can be served with red and white roast meats, poultry, game and aged cheese.

  • Grapes:
    Sangiovese (Brunello) 100%
  • Maturing:
    60% of the mass: in Slavonian oak casks;
    40% of the mass: 12 months in French oak barriques.
    The mass is totally put in Slavonian oak casks for other 12 months; after that, there is a short stay in stainless steel drums and 18 months in bottle.

Ratings & Reviews

94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino is a beautiful wine and a protagonist of this vintage. I love the purity of the fruit and the direct manner in which it is delivered. This wine exhibits intensity and a careful sense of balance in which dark cherry fruit and blackberry are folded into spice, tar and licorice. The effect is seamless and elegant. This wine has the inner flexibility to drink in the near or the long term. The range is impressive."

93 Points - James Suckling:
"A more modern style with some fresher, spicy oak, notes of spiced creamy and tarry nuances and plenty of red- and dark-cherry flavors. Holds long and fresh. The concentration is good. Try from 2022."

92+ Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
Dark ruby-red. Strong notes of aromatic herbs, flint and licorice complicate red cherry and berry aromas and flavors. Very long, fresh and clean, offering serious but polished tannins, this classic Brunello ought to age and develop nicely.

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"Enticing aromas of iris, black-skinned berry and a whiff of new leather pave the way. The full-bodied, balanced palate offers juicy black cherry, tobacco, white pepper and licorice alongside polished fine-grained tannins. Drink 2022–2031."
