Intense garnet red in color, this wine offers an intriguing nose with an initial mix of licorice and juniper berries, followed by underbrush berries and balsamic notes. On the palate, the wine is supple and velvety, sapid and enveloping. The finish is extremely pleasant, persistent and spicy.
"Alluring aromas of wild berry, crushed blue flower, dried herb and exotic spice lead the way. The elegant linear palate doles out juicy black cherry, raspberry preserve, licorice and a hint of tobacco. It's well balanced, with taut fine-grained tannins and bright acidity. Give this time to fully develop." 95 points, Wine Enthusiast
"The wines from this estate are distinguished by their overall elegance and fine nature. The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino shows its youth with tight aromas of forest fruit and wild cherry. This wine requires more bottle time before it starts to blossom. In the mouth, it delivers sultry and sophisticated notes of tobacco and campfire ash. The wine ages in Slavonian oak casks for 30 months." 93 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
