"I love the way this wine has absorbed and reflects the sunny and warm personality of its maker, the brilliant Donatella Cinelli Colombini. The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Prime Donne has her spirit and her vision, and I recognize that as I taste through these samples. Her distinctive winemaking mark is achieved with botte and tonneaux aging, and her style is definitely fuller and more generous than most. It's a modern Brunello, if you care to categorize wines in this way. The vineyards are exposed to wider horizons that make for more light hours each day (from dawn to sunset) of the growing cycle. I'm on team Donatella." - ML
Deep ruby. Herbs, sweet spices and coffee complicate sexy plum and sweet spice flavors. Multilayered and well balanced, offering suave tannins and lively harmonious acidity, this features a rising, polished finish. Outstanding Brunello that really builds on you. - AG
Wine Spectator 90
Aromas of vanilla, resin and spice mark this ripe, supple style. Cherry, plum, earth and tobacco notes chime in as this winds down to a moderately long finish. Modern style.
