95pointsCastelgiocondo 2013 Ripe al Convento (Brunello di Montalcino)

Cellar Selection

Forest-floor, leather, menthol, black-skinned fruit and a whiff of French oak aromas shape the nose on this focused red. Savory and elegant, the taut palate delivers ripe Marasca cherry, cranberry, star anise and tobacco set against tightly knit fine-grained tannins that need a few more years to unwind. Fresh acidity shores up the finish. Drink 2022–2030. Kerin O’Keefe
