"The single-vineyard 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna delle Raunate is a small-production wine with only 3,000 bottles produced. The bouquet is packed tight with black fruit nuances backed by exotic spice, tar, tobacco and even a touch of coarse black pepper. The wine wraps thickly over the palate with fresh acidity and firm texture." -Robert Parker
"There is a core of sweet, ripe cherry fruit shaded by spice, earth and tar flavors in this dense red, which is rich and vibrant, with a long, tension-filled aftertaste echoing fruit and spice. Best from 2022 through 2037."
"This opens with subdued aromas of dark fruit, baking spice and a hint of mocha. The firm no-frills palate offers clove, black currant jam and vanilla alongside assertive close-grained tannins. Drink after 2023." -Kerin O'keefe
