The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino is a brilliant bottle of wine and is another ripe, sexy, ready to go 2013 Brunello. This was a sunny, warm vintage that suffered from rain at harvest, yet the wines have loads of charm and accessibility, and they certainly don't lack for ripeness. This beauty boasts a medium ruby color as well as a fabulous bouquet of spiced red cherries, balsamic, incense, and licorice. It's medium to full-bodied, layered, ripe, and seamless on the palate, with nicely concealed oak and rock-solid underlying density and ripe tannins. It's a beautiful wine that has plenty of upfront appeal as well as upwards of two decades of longevity. Bravo!

The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino lives up to the impeccable reputation garnered by this estate over the years. This is a profound and beautifully rendered Sangiovese that delivers bold and luscious fruit quality with black cherry and spicy plum at the start. The bouquet follows through with mild oak notes of smoke, tar and toasted nut. There is another aromatic component that includes crushed stone and dried herb or mint. This Brunello shows elegant evolution in the glass and promises a very long aging future ahead. Some 200,000 bottles were made, so it should be easy to locate this excellent wine.

Bright red. Pure, refined red cherry and wild strawberry aromas and flavors complicated by sweet spices and aromatic herbs. Deep and multilayered, the wine boasts polished tannins and a harmonious acid spine that lifts and extends the red fruit on the long, suave finish. An essence of Sant'Angelo in Colle with bigger body and palate weight than, for example, the Brunellos of Montosoli, but still sleek and refined as the best wines of Sant'Angelo in Colle can be. The cool-climate-styled 2013 vintage is precisely the type of year in which Il Poggione excels: this lovely, focused wine is the best classico Brunello from Il Poggione in years. Superb.

This red strikes a nice balance between plum and cherry fruit and beefy tannins, featuring elements of leather, tobacco, earth and iron. Balanced and long, with a gripping finish. Best from 2022 through 2035. 16,666 cases made, 8,333 cases imported.

Tobacco, underbrush and new leather aromas come together on the nose. The full-bodied palate offers dried black cherry, star anise, clove and a hint of espresso alongside taut, fine-grained tannins. Drink after 2023.
