90 Points - "The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino lifts up with a classic display of wild strawberries and cherries complemented by cedar shavings and textbook Tuscan dust. This initially soothes with its silky textures and ripe red fruits, but tension quickly builds as brisk acids mingle with saturating mineral tones and grippy tannins toward the close. Savory spices, inner rose and violets linger through the long, structured finale. Give the 2013 another two to three years to soften a bit more." - Vinous
