Castiglion del Bosco Brunello di Montalcino, Toscana, Italy, 2013

$50.15

James Suckling 94/00:The rose petal and cherry character really come through. Full body, layered and spicy. Orange peel. Flavorful finish. Shows structure and intensity. I love the texture.
Wine Advocate 92/00:Here’s a Brunello that will surely see a solid ten-year evolution. The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino offers excellent balance and carefully delivered power. Both characteristics help to fuel the wine’s smooth momentum over the palate. Dark fruit, plum and dried blackberry appear on the bouquet. Those fruity tones are followed by spice, leather and grilled herb. Some 90,000 bottles were produced.
 
Wine Spectator 92/00:Shows intense, ripe cherry flavors, bordering on jammy, yet stays fresh, courtesy of the bright acidity and dense tannins. Young yet well-proportioned, with a lingering aftertaste of earth, graphite and tobacco. Best from 2022 through 2036.

Description

Brunello di Montalcino red wine from Tuscany, Italy, is recognized as one of the best wines. Brunello di Montalcino red wine is actually a Sangiovese Clone that responds amazingly well in the area around the Montalcino hilltop. Brunello di Montalcino red wine also has a younger sibling, called Rosso di Montalcino that is aged a shorter period of time and is more approachable when younger.

About: The estate of Castiglion del Bosco grows only Sangiovese, and its entire line of wines is an expression of the two local denominations: three different interpretations of Brunello and the Rosso di Montalcino. But winemaking rigor and Sangiovese are not the only voices of Castiglion del Bosco, since the winery speaks with an international voice as well. Prima Pietra, the second vineyard property of Massimo Ferragamo, lies in Riparbella, on the Tuscan coast, with its 11 hectares (27 acres) of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
