Piancornello Brunello di Montalcino 2013

Wine Advocate: 93pts 

The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino offers a plump and cherry-rich bouquet that is youthful and vibrant at this young stage. You really get a sense of the tonic fruit that is achieved in this cooler vintage. Wild cherry aromas segue to violets, roses and medicinal herbs. You'll love all that special detailing. Yet the wine also shows a thick and firm texture that would benefit from another 3-5 years of cellar aging.

Deep red-ruby. Highly perfumed, mineral aromas of raspberry, red cherry, violet and iron. Wonderfully sappy but youthfully imploded in the mouth, this remarkably precise and well-delineated Brunello offers an extremely refined set of flinty red and black fruit herbal flavors. Finishes with a firm edge of tannins and very good floral and spicy lift. An outstanding, very pure and deep wine that really needs about a decade of patience. One of the Brunellos of the vintage.
