Luminous medium-dark red. The captivating nose combines sour red cherry, violet, coconut, tobacco, minerals and a hint of white pepper. Densely packed and youthful but very fresh and lively; this already boasts a silky texture and considerable early appeal owing to its noteworthy sweetness of fruit. Subtle notes of red berries, herbs, graphite and flowers carry through into the rising, very long, vibrant finish. A knockout Brunello that further confirms winemaker Cecilia Leoneschi’s talent at making exceptionally good, very classic Brunellos. I can think of very few wines in all of Italy that have improved more than Castiglion del Bosco’s over the last decade. Well done.

The rose petal and cherry character really come through. Full body, layered and spicy. Orange peel. Flavorful finish. Shows structure and intensity. I love the texture. Drink in 2019.

Here's a Brunello that will surely see a solid ten-year evolution. The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino offers excellent balance and carefully delivered power. Both characteristics help to fuel the wine's smooth momentum over the palate. Dark fruit, plum and dried blackberry appear on the bouquet. Those fruity tones are followed by spice, leather and grilled herb. Some 90,000 bottles were produced.

Shows intense, ripe cherry flavors, bordering on jammy, yet stays fresh, courtesy of the bright acidity and dense tannins. Young yet well-proportioned, with a lingering aftertaste of earth, graphite and tobacco. Best from 2022 through 2036. 7,500 cases made.
