Riserva Bramante Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2013

Lyle Fass
9.2

Nose jumps out of the glass. Ripe red cherries, plum and lots of spice. Slightly roasted as well. But not dominant and might blow off. Palate is just a massive blockbuster of a Brunello. Big and bruising with luscious, high acid cherry fruit. Complex but also a clipped finish and big tannins. But this is balanced. Just needs air. Fruit is sweet and massive. There is nothing subtle here. Really fresh and energetic. For what it is it’s very nice but it’s something I’m not sure I want to drink beyond once a year. Very long. Maybe my score goes up with air.

Narrator: my score went down with air. Became more tannic and nose got more roasted. 9.4 to 9.2.

Another great brunello. More red fruit forward but really approachable at a young age. #salvioni — 4 days ago

Had this on my radar for a while and it didn’t let us down. What a wine! Rustic nose (in a positive way), and integrated taste, silky and round. Nice! — 9 days ago

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2017

Buongiorno from Roma and the first bottle of the trip, an excellent brunello from Carpineto. Lots of licorice, tons of fruit and great body - this is built for aging and will likely be tremendous in 10-15 years — 8 days ago
