Agostina Pieri Brunello di Montalcino 2013

When Francesco Monaci established this winery, he had no idea of the frenzy his wines would inspire. In only a handful of vintages, his Brunello and Rossohave become some of Montalcinos most sought after wines. A nephew of consorzio president, and famed producer, Giancarlo Pacenti, Francesco found a steepSangiovese vineyard in Castelnuovo dellAbate where a seven-hectare vineyard is perfectly situated, with a full southern exposure. This allows for incredibleripeness even in the old, low-vigor Sangiovese clones he favors. Grapes are harvested by hand and then strictly sorted to eliminate sub-standard fruit.Only the finest lots are selected for Brunello.

Antonio Gallonis Vinous: "Bright pale red. Fresh aromas and flavors of red berries, dried herbs, licorice and tea. Clean, juicyand youthfully chewy, offering bright Sangiovese colors, aromas and flavors of tea leaf, licorice, and red berries that linger nicely on the long, violet-accented,savory, slightly peppery finish. One of the more interesting, fresher Brunellos from Agostina Pieri in years. Very well done. Drink 2024-2032." Apr 2018Robert Parker, Jr.s Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino is a smooth and silky interpretation of Sangiovese.It plays the elegance card very nicely and doles out a steady succession of forest berry, wild rose and balsam herb aromas. Despite that delicate touch,the wine leaves the palate clean and polished, thanks to the natural acidity and fruity brightness at its core. All it needs is a few more years of timeto flesh out further in the bottle. Drink 2020-2030." Feb 2018James Suckling: "This is a serious 2013 Brunello with deep dried fruits and a herbal nose, then massive, chocolatey tannins and a hintof caramel. Then the impressively long, dry finish kicks in. Drink or hold." Jan 2018 Bottle 750ml, cork Varietal 100 percent Sangiovese Grosso (sustainably farmed) Alcohol 14.0 percent Aging 30 months, then 12 months further refining in bottle Region Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy
