Wine Advocate-Parker : Dievole (based in Chianti Classico) owns Podere Brizio. The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino opens to a medium garnet appearance with dark ruby highlights. The nose is beautifully balanced and elegant, with delicate berry nuances that are successfully contrasted against spice, tar and licorice. It closes with a polished feel and lingering tones of dried mint and licorice. Overall, the wine is lightweight and streamlined, but it also delivers impressive elegance.
