Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
The ’13 Brunello Sugarille evokes its standout year in its exquisite balance, racy profile, and luscious aromatics. Beautifully crisp red and blue fruits mingle with balsamic herbs, crushed stones, pressed violet petals, licorice and a dusting of peppery spices in this standout wine; fine-grained tannins stud the cheeks, while a nicely acidic core propels the wine to a complex, lingering finish. Muscular yet graceful, this Brunello moves like a dancer, showing surprising power and astonishing delicacy--it’s got the kind of structure to drink for decades. This cru Brunello comes from the historic 12-acre Sugarille vineyard site that dates back to 1541 and the hands of Italy's most recognized and controversial winemaker, Angelo Gaja. Deriving from the southwestern-facing Sugarille site rich in white clay, the grapes for this cru wine ferment for a month in temperature-controlled stainless steel, and the wine ages for a year each in barriques and in botti.
