Wine Advocate

97 Points, Monica Larner, Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a tremendous wine that delivers a deep sense of inner gravity and balance. That, in a nutshell, is the secret of the top-end wines made at the exciting Canalicchio di Sopra estate. The wines made here always exhibit carefully measured balance in the classic vintages (like 2013) and in the difficult years as well. That extreme balance is exactly why you taste the vintage variation with such distinction. This expression from 2013 is remarkably smooth and silky with a steady succession of traditional Sangiovese aromas that span from wild berry, forest floor, wet earth, pressed flower and hints of tangy licorice or aniseed. This is a mid-weight Brunello that glides over the palate with precise, delicate and long lasting waves of intensity. Some 3,185 bottles, 174 magnums and 30 double magnums were made." 1/19

Wine Spectator

95 Points, Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator: "This is harmonious, featuring cherry, strawberry, plum, and earth flavors that mesh with the supple texture and firm structure. Elements of iron, leather and tobacco emerge as this red stretches out on the tangy finish. Best from 2021 through 2040." 3/19


97 Points, Michaela Morris, Decanter: "Francesco Ripaccioli only has 11 harvests under his belt but calls 2013 the most beautiful one so far. This is also the first year in which the estate's Riserva comes exclusively from the Montosoli cru. Planted in 1995, these are the oldest vines in their stable. Even more thrilling than the winery's 2012, the 2013 Riserva is a model of precision, exquisite balance and razor-sharp linearity. Dense without being heavy, this is buoyed by vivacious acidity and wrapped in commanding yet fine-grained tannins. It unfolds slowly, revealing notes of mineral, sweet dark earth, rosehip, violet and sage blossom - but it promises even more in the years ahead. Drinking Window 2022 - 2039" 2/19
