About

98

" A juicy, young Brunello with berry, dried mushroom and flower character. Orange peel, too. Full body, firm and velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. So complex and beautiful. It goes on for minutes. I love the balance that makes it so enjoyable to try now but it will age for decades ahead. Try to leave it until 2021."

Product Description:

Vibrant, structured, and luminous, the ’13 Brunello from Valdicava is destined to become a hotly coveted vintage of this collector wine. Layering its pure red and blue fruits over a framework of telltale Montalcino terroir, this wine unfurls on the palate with silkiness, exquisite balance, and sheer sophistication--it’s a Brunello to buy by the case so that you can enjoy it for decades to come. Vincenzo Abbruzzese, owner and operator of Valdicava, works passionately, growing his grapes without pesticides, coaxing very high quality, very low yielding berries from his vines, which he then vinifies very traditionally with minimal use of barriques and almost entirely in large neutral oak.
