Parker : 92 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino shows warm aromas of ripe fruit, savory spice, tobacco and grilled herb. The wine is generous and full. There is plenty of primary fruit at the back that glues all these various elements firmly in place. The fruit is subtle and delicate in this vintage. The wine ages in tonneaux for one year and in botte grande for 18 months. Given the nuanced and excellent quality of fruit in this vintage, this wine would have worked with even less oak in my opinion.
