Castelgiocondo Brunello di Montalcino 2013
|Appellation||Brunello di Montalcino|
Wine EnthusiastWild berry, crushed violet, pipe tobacco and chopped herb aromas leap out of the glass. Smooth and savory, the full-bodied palate shows restraint and elegance, delivering red cherry, pomegranate, ground clove and black pepper alongside taut fine-grained tannins and bright acidity.
Wine SpectatorA combination of cherry, leather and tobacco aromas and flavors are the hallmarks of this rich, fresh red. This is as much about the vivid acidity as the dense tannins, which add structure and focus to the flavors on the broad, expansive finish. Best from 2023 through 2038. 23,300 cases made.
