"A captivating, brooding wine, the 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Riservas off with notes of moist soil and undergrowth, yet quickly opening in the glass to reveal masses of crushed strawberries, encased in a cloud of white smoke, minerals, and savory herbs with an unmistakable note of spiced-apple tea. It bristles with energy on the palate, as brisk acids carry its silky textures across the senses, delivering a gorgeous mix of cherry, strawberry, zesty spice, and salty minerals. The finish is long and structured, as hints of dried cherry, spice, and inner florals battle a mix of minerals and tannins for supremacy, yet ultimately take a back seat to the 2013’s youthfully austere state. Sangiovese purists take note; this is a pure, classically-balanced Brunello to lose in the cellar for five to ten years and then revel in for decades to come. Drinking window: 2022-2038. 95 points

Lisini is located in the warm, dry region of Sant’Angelo in Colle, and it continues to demonstrate that long-standing tradition, terroir and the purity of Sangiovese trumps all else in Montalcino. It’s here that they farm 20 hectares, all dedicated to Sangiovese, in calcareous soils with elevations ranging from 300 to 400 meters. The combination of elevation and drying winds, which funnel up from the Maremma, are responsible for the amazing balance of power and finesse that this family is able to achieve throughout their portfolio of Brunello. In the winery, fermentation takes place in glass-lined cement and stainless steel, followed by long macerations and aging entirely in large Slavonian oak.
