A wealth of fruit yet remains and vivid with blueberry and black cherry character. Some bark and dried earth. Full body, integrated tannins and a flavorful finish.
Better than 2012.
Drink or hold.
A rich, opulent version, boasting plum, cherry, spice and warm stone flavors. Ripe and balanced, with a coterie of well-integrated tannins guarding the finish. Best from 2021 through 2035. 6,000 cases made..—Bruce SandersonRead less
The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino exhibits impressive balance and integrity. It contrasts the delicate sweetness of the fruit very nicely against the more ethereal and licorice-like aromas that come so naturally to Sangiovese grown in the spectacular Montalcino appellation. This is a fine wine from Camigliano, an estate that absolutely excels in classic and slightly cooler vintages like 2013. The winemaking is also impeccable, with balanced intensity and integrated tannins. There is a playful note of cherry sweetness on the close that I very much identify with the distinctive Camigliano wine identity. Some 150,000 bottles were produced. Congratulations on a wine well made.
La bella azienda di Gualtiero e Laura Ghezzi adesso coadiuvati dalla figlia Isabella si trova in una delle zone più belle di Montalcino. Il loro Brunello ’13 convince appieno sin dal primo approccio olfattivo tra note di viola mammola, erbe mediterranee e frutti rossi maturi, elegante il sorso in buon equilibrio tra frutto ed aciditàRead less
