Tasting Panel 95
"Fresh nose; smooth and elegant with earthy and articulate flavors of berries and spice. From a very good—not great—vintage, it’s still beautifully balanced and long."
James Suckling 94
"This is a beautiful Brunello that delivers juicy and delicious fruit with cherries and hints of spices. Full body, firm and silky tannins and a long, chewy finish. Gorgeous length."
Wine Spectator 93
"Enticing aromas and flavors of cherry, leather, iron and tobacco mark this structured red. Balanced and firm, with a long and tannic, yet fresh, finish."
Wine Advocate 91
"Tenute Silvio Nardi's 2013 Brunello di Montalcino is a balanced and complete wine. It opens to pretty color saturation and a mid-weight style that is perhaps a touch darker and more concentrated compared to some of the estate's neighbors in this beautiful appellation. Dark fruit flavors of dark cherry and plum segue to spice, campfire ash, cola and wild rose. The wine sees a long oak-aging period, with 12 months in smaller tonneaux followed by 18 months in botti grandi. This elaborate process bodes well for the future longevity of the wine. In fact, I would definitely recommend putting this bottle aside for a few more years before popping the cork."
Wine Enthusiast 91
"Aromas suggesting red woodland berry, crushed herb, blue flower and a whiff of exotic spice float from the glass. The tightly wound linear palate is ethereal and still primary, offering sour cherry and licorice alongside austere close-grained tannins that grip the finish."
