San Filippo Brunello di Montalcino Le Lucére Riserva 2013
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
A lush, velvety texture signals this fruity red, featuring compelling cherry, strawberry and violet flavors. Lively and fresh, with dusty tannins melding with the vivid acidity and rich fruit on the lingering aftertaste. Very pure and alluring, this is enjoyable now with decanting. Drink now through 2038.
This is a beautiful wine that is endowed with an impressive sense of depth and solid inner power or momentum. The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva le Lucére takes a few minutes longer to open in the glass, but once it does it puts on quite a display. This is a darkly saturated expression with a full-bodied approach that displays both rich textural fiber and integrated tannic structure. Aromas include black cherry, plum, spice and tar. There is a point of fruity sweetness in the mouth that only adds to an overall impression of volume and power.
