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."

Located in the prestigious Montalcino DOCG Appellation, Renieri is like a precious jewel in Marco Bacci's treasure chest. Renieri lies southeast of Montalcino, on the southern border of the production zone facing Monte Amiata. The estate extends over 128 hectares of which 30 are dedicated to vineyards. Immediately following the purchase of the property in 1997, the old vineyards were completely replanted with six clones of Sangiovese grafted onto rootstock, following careful analysis of the terrain. Planted at an altitude of nearly 1,320 feet above sea level, the vineyards will surely benefit from the volcanic and calcareous soils. The property is in a splendid position, and the recently renovated main estate villa, made in stone during the 1700s, looks out over the vineyards and the valley where five massive, centuries-old oak trees stand as sentinels marking the center of the whole estat
