2013 Brunello A.D. 1441

Case of 6 bottles 

Varietals: 100% Sangiovese Grosso

Vinification/Ageing: Natural fermentation with indigenous yeast. Long maceration on the skins in steel vat for 65 days. 40 months ageing in large Slovenian oak casks with an additional 9 month minimum in bottle before release.

Alcohol: 14%

Description: Deep ruby with a complex and intense nose of red fruit and black pepper. Full bodied with great tannic structure and acidity, on a long mineral finish. Only for the best vintages does the estate decide to release the Anno Domini 1441 instead of the Brunello di Montalcino Riserva.

94 Points, James Suckling: "This offers assertive oak on the nose with cedary aromas and dried berries, as well as licorice and wild herbs. The palate has a really succulent core of quite ripe and fresh red-plum and berry flavor and holds long. Drink or hold."

92 Points, Wine Enthusiast: "Rose, forest floor, tilled soil and wild berry are just some of the aromas you'll discover on this elegant red. Linear and graceful, the firm, medium-bodied palate is still youthfully austere, delivering juicy red cherry, orange zest, licorice and botanical herb framed in tight-knit refined tannins. It's balanced, with bright acidity. Drink 2023–2033."
