The fourth and oft forgotten B in the triptex of prestigious appellations - Barolo, Burgundy, Bordeaux...Brunello? 2013 was a fantastic vintage for Brunello. Heady cigar notes, with plenty of dark florals, baking spices and fresh leather. It is medium bodied but quite heavily tannic, it will speak well for some years to come. Sour cherries, strawberries and a heavy dusting of white pepper. Length for days, months, years even.

Querce Bettina is a family owned and run vineyard on the southwest slopes of Montalcino at an altitude of around 440m above sea level. They farm organically and make wonderful, powerful, expressive wines.
