95 Points - The Wine Advocate

"The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio alle Mura (with 10,000 bottles produced) pours from the bottle with lavish richness and a saturated, dark colour that is quintessential Brunello. This special selection of fruit from a single vineyard is fermented in both stainless steel and oak, but secondary fermentation happens in barrique. Most of the wine (90%) is aged in barrique for 30 months. In a cool vintage like 2013 that plays its best cards in terms of structure and acidity, this winemaking approach is not heavy handed. In fact, this beautiful wine is driven by a unique sense of momentum and forward thrust that should carry it through its long aging evolution." -  Monica Lancer
