The Exceptional 2013 Brunello Vintage
One Of Brunello’s Great Wines
2013 Brunello’s are a key vintage release this year. The vintage is being
compared to the great 2006 Vintage for its clarity and intensity.
Robinson on the vintage: “A picture-perfect July, August and September saved
the year, one that resulted in elegant, fresh wines. A promising vintage on the
whole, with the wines of Montalcino expected to be exceptional.”
Suckling: “The top 2013s are reminiscent of outstanding 2006s, which can
also possess similarly clear, vivid fruit coupled with depth…”
one of the all-time great Brunello’s made to today is Pertimali.
Parker, “If I had only one Brunello to drink, it would be Pertimali.”
2013 Livio Sasseti Pertimali Brunello
is the essence of great Brunello. The wine is absolute textbook traditional
Brunello. The perfect balance of power and finesse. A mindblowing sensory
experience. Set on Montosoli hill, arguably the finest of Montalcino's crus,
the Pertimali estate has been owned and operated by the Sassetti family for
over a century. The wine is a huge favorite of critics and collectors alike.
ThIs is a pinnacle wine, pretty much as good as Brunello gets. The wine got a
huge 98pts by Suckling and we will sell out very quickly.
is intense and complex yet subtle with fantastic aromas of rose petal, plum,
clove and fresh mushroom. Hints of stems. Full body, focused and polished with
a linear line of tannins and fabulous length. A beauty." -- James Suckling
