Gaja Pieve Santa Restituta, Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2013, Italy

  • PRESS: Vinous - 92 points. "Full ruby-red. Aromas of red cherry, blackberry, licorice and minerals. Juicy and tightly wound but pliant, offering smooth black and red fruit flavors complicated by licorice and fresh herbs. Classically dry and long, finishing with supple but firm tannins and a bright floral element. It’s hard to argue with this entry-level Brunello’s quality. I find it to be slightly underrated in many vintages, as all the attention is focused on Gaja’s two top Brunellos, the Rennina and the Sugarille. But this non-cru Brunello offers lots of high-quality wine for the price."

    Winemaker Notes:

    The 2013 Brunello shows complex and fresh fruity aromas: red currant, sour cherry, quince. The nose displays notes of juniper and laurel leaves. The palate expresses a peculiar sweetness, with notes of granular fruit, such as white pear. The texture is smooth and juicy with round tannins and bright freshness. The wine is persistent and elegant.
