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.

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.

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.

From an estate in Castelnuovo Abate, in Montalcino’s southern sector, this deeply colored cherry-flavored wine is loaded with tones of menthol and sage. It feels cool and lively, light enough to serve with poultry dishes.
