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

(14% alcohol):  Dark, full red.  Rich red cherry, cinnamon and clove aromas on the enticing nose.  Large-scaled and almost fat on entry, then a bit more austere in the middle thanks to racy acidity and youthfully chewy tannins that keep the creamy red cherry and red licorice flavors under wraps.  The persistent, minerally finish shows a strong saline quality.  A very solid Brunello riserva but the less costly 2008 normale is almost as good right now.

Sangiovese

The trademark of wines from Tuscany, and especially those from the region of Chianti, was once the fiasco. This straw-colored flask may carry associations of lengthy rustic meals out on the portico of a villa in the Tuscan countryside, but this romantic reverie must be interrupted with a burst of reality...
