Ruffino Brunello di Montalcino Greppone Mazzi 2013
*This item may have limited availability - please call ahead to have us check stock!*
Ruby red with garnet hues. Intense aromas of ripe plums, cassis, and maraschino cherry with notes of incense, cocoa, sweet tobacco, and spicy black pepper. The palate is full-bodied with an elegant and complex structure. The tannins are persistent and pronounced yet rich and smooth. Very well balanced with red fruit, chocolate, and sweet tobacco on the long finish. Greppone Mazzi Brunello di Montalcino is a rich, intensely flavored wine that begs for rich and hearty dishes such as rack of lamb, seared duck breast with grilled portobello mushrooms, or cinghiale (wild boar ragu) over pasta. It's also a perfect complement to cheeses such as pecorino toscano and taleggio.

Wine EnthusiastAromas of underbrush, tilled soil, iris, new leather and red-skinned berry take shape in the glass. It's full in body yet shows a weightless intensity, offering Marasca cherry, raspberry, star anise and tobacco set against a backbone of firm acidity and taut, polished tannins. Still tightly wound and reserved, it's a classic in the making, destined for a lengthy stay in the cellar. Drink 2028-2043.
Wine SpectatorAromas of cherry, leather, licorice, spice and tobacco are in harmony with the solid structure. Shows notes of sanguine and iron, ending with excellent length. Best from 2021 through 2034. 500 cases imported.
Wine AdvocateHere's a bold and concentrated expression of Sangiovese. The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Greppone Mazzi reveals ripe fruit tones with luscious cherry and blackberry on the front line. It delivers softer tones of oak spice and cinnamon at the back with some balsam herb and crushed granite as well. This is an immediate, mid-weight effort to drink in the near and medium term. Some 35,000 bottles were made.
