About

Ratings:

92

"A ripe and rich red with dark berry and dried mushroom character. Full body, round and intense tannins and a fresh and energetic finish. Solid Brunello for the vintage."

91 Wine Enthusiast

"This opens with aromas suggesting leather, tobacco, underbrush and a balsamic note of camphor. The tightly wound palate offers dried black cherry, steeped prune, dried mint and licorice alongside grainy tannins that grip the finish. -KO"

90 Monica Larner - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Sassocheto opens to a lean garnet color with luminous ruby highlights. The bouquet is mild and dry with forest fruit, licorice, bramble and dried blueberry. Spice, cardamom and even a touch of exotic cumin appear at the back. This Brunello is delicate and balanced. It can be consumed straight out of the gate. Only 5,000 bottles were made."
