    2013 is a wine of great balance that expresses both delicacy and balance, a stunning bouquet with the scents of small red berry fruits, forest floor flowers, trademark earthiness and aromatic herbs. On the palate there's a wonderful softness to this wine, red berry fruits again, black cherries and balsamic which compliments the freshness and structure and incredibly long finish. Without question one of Italy's great wines.

    Region

    Ancient towns perched atop hills with commanding views, sun-drenched days and hillsides dotted with vines and olive trees. The sunlight, the food and wine. Tuscany is a remarkable place. The white wines are crisp and savoury, Trebbiano is widely planted along with Malvasia, Vermentino and Vernaccia, the latter staring in the excellent Vernaccia di San Gimignano. Sangiovese is the undisputed king of the red grape varieties and is the base of such well known wines as Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. International grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot are also planted and in the DOC Bolgheri region, when blended with Sangiovese, the famous ‘Super Tuscan’ (now designated IGT) wines were born, the most famous examples being Sassicaia, Ornellaia and Tignanello. From sapid, racy whites through to savoury Chainti’s and bold IGT expressions, Tuscany offers much to the wine drinker and is firmly cemented as one of the world's great wine regions. Local Knowledge: It is possible to base yourself in Florence and venture out on day trips to tackle Tuscany’s famous wine towns but spend at least one night in a quintessential Tuscan town like Montepulciano.

    This is the year dottore Franco Biondi Santi would pass away, leaving the Brunello appellation orphaned because he was its most beloved and respected paternal figure. A wine shaped very much in his memory, the 2013 Brunello di Montalcino is a stunning edition, with a tight inner core of wild fruit and natural acidity surrounded by elegant tones of blue flower, wild cherry, cured tobacco, balsam herb and camphor ash. This vin- tage displays a beautiful garnet color that shines in the glass followed by mid-weight concentration and an especially fresh and vibrant finish that lasts for many long minutes. This wine should be held in the cellar for at least ten more years.

    Just mid ruby with orange tinges. Beautiful, fresh leafy cherry fruit and succulent cherry palate with great focus and fine, firm tannins. Austere and perfumed finish.
