91(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2013

(14% alcohol):  Dark red with an amber rim.  Intense peach, spicy red cherry and botanical herbs on the complex nose.  On the palate, medicinal herbs and red cherry flavors are complicated by minerals and supported by slightly peppery tannins and edgy acidity.  Finishes bright and aromatic, with hints of animal fur, leather and sexy oaky nuances.  Richer and deeper than most other 2008 Brunellos but needs a couple of years to settle down.  Right now it's not much better than the Brunello 2008 normale, but I have no doubt this will be the superior wine in ten years' time.
