Lisini Brunello di Montalcino 2013

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS WINE WILL NOT SHIP OUT UNTIL THE 1ST WEEK OF JULY

Wine Spectator 96pts:

Exuding cherry, strawberry and floral flavors tinged with iron, earth and spice notes, this ripe red is elegant in profile, tightly wound and deftly balanced, ending with a kick of fruit, spice and mineral elements.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 93pts:
Lisini's 2013 Brunello di Montalcino opens to a delightful appearance that sees shades of garnet and dark ruby blend into one. The bouquet is sprightly and buoyant, thanks to a pretty ensemble of wild berry, licorice and grilled herb aromas. Those are mixed with heavier background tones of spice and leather. There is also a noticeable floral note of wild rose and dried jasmine. This is a silky and smooth Brunello with a hint of fresh acidity on the close.
Vinous 93pts:
Bright medium red. Spicy, floral perfumes of red cherry, red currant, licorice and minty herbs. At once juicy and lively, but also dense and energetic; bright, harmonious acidity nicely frames the cool flavors of red currant, spicy plum and minty herbs. This refined Brunello boasts outstanding tension, midpalate energy and focus. Finishes with polished tannins and noteworthy floral lift.
From the importer:

One of the most classico of classic Brunello: Lisini was one of the original founders of the Consorzio of Brunello in the 1967 back before Brunello was BRUNELLO and Montalcino was MONTALCINO!

100% Sangiovese from the estate’s massal selection. Vineyards range in elevation from 300 to 350 meters above sea level. Vinification is traditional, in glass-lined cement tanks with skin contact for 20-26 days. The wine is then transferred to 20-52 hectoliter casks for 42 months, followed by 6 to 8 months of bottle age prior to release. 3,000 cases are produced on average each year.
