Red with good depth and intensity. Rim, denoting ageing, tends to terracotta in colour, then garnet. Very intense fragrances, expanded by a reducing ageing process which amplifies the hints of tobacco and lavender, typical of a prime Sangiovese. Soft and rich at the start with very good structure, generous and lingering, very persistent finish. Aromas are also fully expressed in the mouth with the presence of balanced wood exalting the aromatics of the variety.

Wine EnthusiastThis opens with aromas of dark berry, underbrush and chewing tobacco. The structured savory palate offers Morello cherry, star anise and a note of white pepper alongside fine-grained tannins. Drink 2022-2029.

Wine AdvocateFrom producer Collelceto di Palazzesi Elia, the 2013 Brunello di Montalcino is a steady and streamlined wine. There are some herbal edges to the bouquet that may indicate some minor ripening irregularities in what was a difficult vintage, especially toward the end of the growing season (when rains hit right before harvest). Wild berry and red currant are followed by grilled rosemary and Mediterranean herb. On the close, the wine delivers sour cherry and cranberry. Some 10,000 bottles were made.
