Thanks to the cool climate the 2013 White Label grapes ripened slowly and steadily, showing an intense ruby red color since harvest time. The bouquet is complex, with intense red fruit notes and hints of cherry and citrus. On the palate is fresh and elegant, while tannins are velvety, ripen and well integrated. Final is long, balanced, with a refreshing aftertaste. Very pleasant and drinkable despite the long ageing potential.

Wine AdvocateIt's that time of year: get your Neri on. This blockbuster Montalcino estate has released another fantastic collection of new wines, including the 2013 Brunello di Montalcino. Beautifully executed, the wine oozes forth from the glass with round, supple and velvety fruit. This Brunello Annata is luscious and deep, with millefoglie aromatic layering that peels back slowly and carefully. The mouthfeel is less elaborate compared to the estate's top expressions, but the bouquet does much to push this score into the low nineties. Some 80,000 bottles were produced.
