There is structure here, with all the components integrated. Best from 2020 through 2035. From Italy.—B.S. collapse

That compact core is surrounded by many thick layers of dark fruit and spice that are expressive and expansive. Those outer layers give the wine softness and some immediate accessibility, even at this early stage in its life. All summed up, this is a very complete and characteristic Brunello that offers stunning quality for medium or long-term drinking. - Monica Larner collapse

Hints at black and red fruits on the delicate, refined nose, complicated by nuances of violet and flint. Then smooth and suave in the mouth, with outstanding breadth to the blueberry, sour red cherry, potpourri and floral flavors. Penetrating minerality contributes to the lasting impression of precision and verve. The noble, mouth-coating tannins provide backbone and noteworthy aging potential to this extremely elegant, pure, dense wine. One of the top eight or so Brunellos of the 2013 vintage. -- Ian D'Agata collapse

The home site is clay, rich in magnesium, iron and manganese, while Le Gode di Montosoli is distinguished as classic galestro. Gorgeously fresh and youthful, this has well-defined scents of pepper and fennel. The palate possesses similar vibrancy, where wild strawberry, mineral and balsamic notes build on the finish. Refined yet firm tannins give plenty of confidence for ageing. collapse

Forest floor, dark-skinned berry, iris and new leather aromas lead the nose. The full-bodied juicy palate offers ripe wild cherry, star anise and a hint of pipe tobacco alongside taut, fine-grained tannins.

Ripe berry and dried orange peel character follow through to a full body, round and velvety tannins and a juicy finish. A more fruit-forward style for this estate. Better in 2019.
