We are very much looking forward to showing our new 2013 Brunello release as well as our Rosso del Palazzone Lot 1/17, Lorenzo & Isabelle 2013 and 2012 Brunello next week in NYC & Chicago. At the Benvenuto Brunello Tasting Events, several notable Montalcino wineries will be showcasing their current Rosso and Brunello releases. Other notable producers such as Le Chiuse, Il Poggione, Ucceliera, and many more will also be in attendance next week. It is a wonderful and rare opportunity to taste through this many Montalcino wines all at once. It is truly the next best thing to being in Montalcino and enjoying these wines at the wineries and restaurants first hand…which is of course the ideal, however this opportunity should only cost you a mere taxi ride and/or train fare if you are based in or close to Manhattan or Chicago.

Here are just a few preliminary comments on the 2013 vintage from noteworthy reviewers-

“As good as the 2012s are, the 2013s are shaping up to be even better. Stylistically, the 2013s are mid-weight, floral wines built on salivating acidity, perfumed aromatics, chiseled fruit and mid-weight structure.”—Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

“the best [wines] show delectable finesse and balance.” – Stephen Brook, Decanter

“[2013 was] a promising vintage on the whole, with the wines of Montalcino expected to be exceptional.” – Jancis Robinson

Benvenuto Brunello will be  held in NYC next Monday 1/29 at Gotham Hall from 1-6pm and Chicago on Wednesday 1/31 at the Drake Hotel from 1-6pm.  To RSVP, please email benvenutobrunello@colangelopr.com IMG_0382
