2013 Val di Suga "Vigna del Lago" Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1523693 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna del Lago (with 5,000 bottles made) sees fruit sourced from a vineyard site located in the northern part of the appellation. Unlike the Poggio al Granchio expression that is aged in new 300-liter French barrique, this wine is instead aged in large 30- and 50-hectoliter Slavonian oak casks. In theory, this wine sees less oak-exposed surface area and follows a classic or traditional approach to Tuscan winemaking. Stylistically speaking, this Brunello is sharper and glossier with fragrant tones of wild berry and rose hip. The acidity is more pronounced, giving this wine beautifully contoured edges. (ML) 93+ Inner quote mark (2/2019)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Quite reductive at first but opens up quickly with air to reveal orange peel, dried red cherries, cedar and paprika. Medium to full body, fine and silky tannins, beautiful acidity and a medium-chewy finish. A stylish Brunello. Inner quote mark (7/2018)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Aromas of fragrant blue flower, mature plum, leather and tobacco emerge from the glass. The full-bodied palate offers crushed black raspberry, ripe Marasca cherry, orange zest and baking spice set against a tannic backbone. You'll also feel the warmth of alcohol on the midpalate, but the fruit richness supports it. (KO) Inner quote mark (6/2019)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Macerated cherry, plum, licorice, tar and tobacco flavors are the highlights. Taut and linear in profile, with a dense finish. Stays vibrant, revealing echoes of tar and tobacco. (BS) Inner quote mark (6/2019)
