Castiglion del Bosco Brunello di Montalcino 2013 - 3 Litre Bottle

Product description
Complexity, superb structure, and an inviting, mouth-filling palate are the hallmarks of this Sangiovese grown in the 42-hectare Capanna vineyard facing towards the Mediterranean sea. A garnet-flecked ruby red, it releases generous, emphatic fragrances classic to Sangiovese, developing a near-endless progression notable for its beautiful balance.

94 Points - James Suckling
The rose petal and cherry characters really come through. Full body, layered and spicy. Orange peel. Flavourful finish. Shows structure and intensity. Drink now.

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.

92 Points - Wine Spectator
Shows intense, ripe cherry flavours, 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.
