At first sight, the wine looks clear, brilliant, burgundy with ruby light. It gives out a persisting, strong smell with nuances from the underwood, aromatic wood, soft fruit, vanilla and preserve. At first taste, the wine is round and full-bodied, dry with an aromatic persistence.
91 Points - James Suckling Aromas of blackberry and oyster shell follow through to a medium to full body, silky tannins and a bright finish. Not the most complex wine but delicious. Drink now.
91 Points - Decanter Perfumed nose with cherry, chocolate, vanilla and some oak. Chewy texture packed with layers of flavour with a dry, firm finish. A sturdy yet elegant wine.
90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate The Il Valentiano 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Campo di Marzo is a densely enriched expression of Sangiovese. The bouquet opens to dark fruit, plum and dried fig. There is barbecue spice and sweet tobacco as well. Three years in oak has shaped the volume and the rich texture of the wine. The wine is a bit edgy on the palate with moments of firmness and density that are less common in this delicate and streamlined vintage.
