Wine Advocate

94 Points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Valdicava's 2013 Brunello di Montalcino is a beautifully saturated expression that opens to a dark garnet appearance and a soothing, velvety texture. The bouquet is packed tight with dark berry nuances, starting with ripe cherry and extending to black fruit tones of fresh prune and plum. The wine's strongest cards are its texture, structure and its power. This is a cool vintage that produced very fine and accessible wines. This expression, however, shows a very different personality with ample volume and long staying power. Vincenzo Abbruzzese's Valdicava is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. Production started with Vincenzo's grandfather Bramante Martini. Today, Vincenzo's son PierFilippo has joined the family business and is working at the winery." 2/18, #235

James Suckling

98 Points, James Suckling: "A juicy, young Brunello with berry, dried mushroom and flower character. Orange peel, too. Full body, firm and velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. So complex and beautiful. It goes on for minutes. I love the balance that makes it so enjoyable to try now but it will age for decades ahead. Try to leave it until 2021." 11/17
