2013 Brunello di Montalcino, Fossacolle

This is a stunning Brunello from Fossacolle. It’s citrus and lifted, with incredibly fine tannins that build, hinting at the wine’s incredible aging potential. Notes of peach skin, fresh pepper and flowers support the core of elegant fruit. This such tension here, with cool energy and purity. Remarkable.

2013 Brunello di Montalcino, Fossacolle

TASTING NOTES

Fossacolle has produced an excellent set of new releases. At the top of the list is the 2013 Brunello di Montalcino, which exhibits a spectacular level of inner balance and positive energy. There is a level of aromatic happiness or brightness here that denotes carefully ripened Sangiovese grapes. In other words, you can taste that the fruit has not been stressed by adverse weather conditions. The 2013 vintage is indeed harmonious across the board, and this wine demonstrates that fact.
