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. 14 comes from the number of angels in the Catholic religion. 

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."
