About

96

"A wealth of ripe fruit with spice, tobacco, cedar and plum aromas that follow through to a full body, chewy and dense tannins and a ripe and delicious finish. A solid and stoic young red. Give it three or four years to soften. Made from organic grapes."

93 Ian Dagata - Vinous Media

"Deep red. Perfumed violet and black cherry aromas and flavors are complicated by chocolate and coffee. Very smooth and balanced, this lovely wine lingers long on the perfumed, precise aftertaste."

92 Monica Larner - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"La Rasina's 2013 Brunello di Montalcino is dark and thick, almost surprisingly so given the lighter wines generally produced in this vintage. This Brunello offers power and substance with a good sense of volume and lasting fruit flavors. Those flavors include black fruit, prune and dried blackberry. The mouthfeel closes in with tight fruit flavors with spice, tobacco and balsam herb. The mouthfeel is dry, polished and long (but not too rich)."
