97 Points from Wine Enthusiast

Delicate aromas of new leather, wild berry, chopped mint and a balsamic whiff of eucalyptus come together on this stunning wine. The palate is still youthfully restrained, but already offers juicy Marasca cherry, raspberry compote, star anise and a hint of truffle set against tightly wound, refined tannins. Bright acidity provides balance. It needs time to unwind and fully develop but promises to blossom into a stunner. Drink 2023–2038. Cellar Selection

 

93 Points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Tasted from barrel, the 2013 Brunello di Montalcino La Cerbaiola is a fine and delicate expression. The bouquet opens gracefully to show pressed violets, blanched almond, wild spice and crisp forest berry. Like most of Salvioni's wines, this newest release is all about those tiny details. All those miniature components come together to build volume and intensity as the wine settles firmly over the palate. This vintage is slightly more streamlined and thin, yet the polished intensity of the mouthfeel is satisfying and long regardless.

 

Winemaker Notes

The ruby red color of a young Brunello attenuates during its evolution leaving hints of light garnet which change as the wine ages. The structure is rich in dry extracts which reach up to 32-33gr/l. Tannins are present but soft with a long finish. Our Brunello is excellent with roasted red meats and skewers of wild game while the older vintages improve over time even as meditation wines.

Excellent with game, red meats and aged cheeses.
