"Aromas of cherry, coffee and orange peel follow through to a medium to full body, round and velvety tannins and a juicy finish. A delicious wine already but needs a year or two to come together.~JS

Vinous 92
"Good deep ruby-red. Spicy aromas of blackberry, licorice and coffee. Ripe, lush and deep, showing lovely lift to the violet, licorice and dark berry flavors, this finishes firmly structured and long on the aftertaste. Seems a little clenched to me on the midpalate and need years in the cellar to expand fully."~ID

Wine Advocate 94
"Fossacolle has produced an excellent set of new releases. At the top of the list is the 2013 Brunello di Montalcino, which exhibits a spectacular level of inner balance and positive energy. There is a level of aromatic happiness or brightness here that denotes carefully ripened Sangiovese grapes. In other words, you can taste that the fruit has not been stressed by adverse weather conditions. The 2013 vintage is indeed harmonious across the board, and this wine demonstrates that fact."~ML

Wine & Spirits Magazine 94
"Sergio Marchetti and his family became owners of this small estate near Tavernelle, southwest of Montalcino, when the former owner gifted the land to him. Marchetti continues to manage the ten vineyard acres while his son-in-law, Adriano Bambagioni, makes the wines. The estate's 2013 Brunello is immensely appealing, plush with soft cherry fruit and tarragon notes wrapped in fine, firm tannins. The wine takes on the notes of damp earth and subtle spices as it sits in the glass, feeling cool and balanced."~SJ
