Brunello di Montalcino 2013

Keep

Cool year with rain throughout. Most will be approachable soon after release, while the best demonstrate elegance, grace and perfume, with mid-term drinking potential of 10-15 years

The usual deluge of journalists from around the world descended on Tuscany’s charming hilltop town of Montalcino in mid-February for the 2018 edition of Benvenuto Brunello.

The event, organised by the producers’ representing consortium, is a comprehensive presentation of the newest releases. This year’s marathon tasting featured the 2013 vintage of Brunello di Montalcino, as well as the 2012 Riservas.

It commenced with additional fanfare as rock star Sting arrived in Montalcino to place the commemorative plaque awarding a four-star rating to the 2017 vintage.
