The vintage of 2013 has yielded excellent Brunelli, no doubt. Recall very little 2014 Brunello wlll be offered by producers from that very difficult vintage. So lay a bit away to bridge 'til the 2015s are released later on in 2020? A historic estate. An unbelievable price.


Wild berry, crushed violet, pipe tobacco and chopped herb aromas leap out of the glass. Smooth and savory, the full-bodied palate shows restraint and elegance, delivering red cherry, pomegranate, ground clove and black pepper alongside taut, fine-grained tannins and bright acidity.

96 points, Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast (May 2018)

A firm and silky red with plum and dried cherry and some orange peel character. Full body and solid with a flavorful finish. A linear line of acidity and firm tannins make this one of the most structured wines from here in a while. Better in 2020.

95 points, James Suckling (Nov 2017)
