James Suckling 98 "Spectacular aromas of dark fruits such as cherries with undertones of peaches and orange peel and some floral character, too. Full body, layered and rich. Lightly chewy tannins. Incredibly long and flavorful. Makes you want to drink it now but it will age beautifully."
Wine Spectator 93 "A rich version, with plum, cherry and saline, minerally flavors. Tobacco, grass and underbrush accents add depth as this finishes firm and crisp. Best from 2022 through 2035."
Wine Advocate 92 "The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino reveals dark color intensity with bold aromas of black cherry and plum that taste grounded and integrated within the thick texture of the wine. That core of dark fruit is surrounded by spicy trimmings of pipe tobacco. This is a centered and balanced effort that delivers the power and the firm structure of the vintage. The wine should drink well over the next ten years."
