2013 Pinino Brunello di Montalcino - 91 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"Bright red. Perfumed red berry, strawberry, violet and cinnamon on the enticing nose. Enters juicy and perfumed, then tight and increasingly austere as the high acidity and noteworthy tannic bite keep the fresh red fruit flavors under wraps. Finishes long and clean. This will undoubtedly improve with a little bottle age and will show best with food. It’s a lovely, perfumed Brunello, but I would have liked a touch more ripe fruit; still, this steely wine is very much in the style of the year. - Ian D'Agata"
