The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a powerful expression of Sangiovese. The wine offers a lot more density, heft and alcohol (recorded at 15%) than many of its peers from this slightly cooler vintage. The wine is fleshed out and rich with black cherry, plum, spice, tar and cola. You are also treated to a moment of cherry sweetness that adds texture and density to the finish. This pretty Riserva sports broad shoulders for easy pairings with grilled or baked meat dishes. Only 2,600 bottles were produced.
