A gorgeous wine showing a great deal of depth and purity. Sweet black fruit of dark cherries and blueberries with beautifully integrated tannins and a hint of white pepper and spice on the finish. Fresh and precise, this wine has lots of energy and is very impressive. It will be delicious in a few years but has plenty of ageing potential. Drink from 2021 - 2037.
The Wine Advocate - 94 points - "The single-vineyard 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Sugarille has a tighter core and a blacker heart compared to the Rennina. This wine is momentarily more difficult to penetrate and comprehend. It makes a more abrupt first impression but then relaxes and reveals more of its character only after it has spent extra time in your company. Then, it becomes suddenly exuberant and loud. This is a dynamic expression of Sangiovese with bold ripe fruit, spice and balsam notes to carry it forward during cellar aging. This vintage offers firmness and strength. Some 20,000 bottles were produced (of both Sugarille and Rennina, respectively)."
