This wine reaches into the deep end of the Brunello intensity spectrum. The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Pian delle Vigne Vignaferrovia is a compact and robust expression of Sangiovese that presents a thick core of dark fruit followed by savory tones of tobacco, spice and cured leather. You might mistakenly conclude that this vintage offers a more international interpretation of Montalcino (with 30 months of oak aging), but I don't necessarily believe this to be the case. The wine is instead accurately reflective of Sangiovese with more textural richness, sunshine and structure locked within. This Riserva embodies a sense of place more than it does winemaking style. Some 13,200 bottles were made. Monica Larner, Robert Parker Wine Advocate

Bright, deep red. Musky aromas and flavors of raspberry, red cherry, licorice, herbs and mocha. Silky-sweet and deep, with terrific herbal and sweet spice lift contributing to the wine's superb inner-mouth tension and focus. Finishes with firm acid and tannic spine for long aging but doesn’t taste hard at all. The wine's fruit and perfume expand nicely on the long aftertaste. A serious Brunello that will reward cellaring, though it’s very enjoyable right out of the gate. Antonio Galloni, Vinous
