93pts James Suckling
Aromas of new leather, grilled meat, fresh berries and fresh spices with rich red plums, as well as raspberries and cherries. The palate has sinewy and quite juicy texture with fresh cassis and plum flavors filling out a gently grippy but ripe finish. Drink or hold.

Sanguine and iron notes are the major themes in this taut red, with hints of cherry, plum, tobacco and earth, backed by a firm, lively structure and echoing the iron and earth elements on the finish. Best from 2021 through 2035.

The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (with 20,000 bottles made) offers broad and far-reaching aromas of bold cherry, black currant, spice and tobacco. This Riserva is fermented in stainless steel and aged in large oak casks for 36 months. Thanks to that traditional winemaking approach and the qualities of this cool and classic vintage, this wine offers all the major Brunello characteristics at a more reasonable price point. It shows lingering ripeness and power.
A ruby red color with light garnet reflection.Ample, complex, intense, with wild berries on the palate.Full-bodied and persistent, light tannins, soft, harmonic and structured.
