The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is seductive, with its sweet spices and floral tones in a bouquet that gives way to dusty black cherry with grounding notes of worn leather and shaved cedar. Dark, ripe fruits, propelled by vibrant acids, and a mix of cooling minerals, savory spice, and fine tannins settle in. The finish is long and structured, with resonating acids, as ripe red fruits and sweet spices slowly fade under an air of pretty red florals. This is a gorgeous expression that can be enjoyed now but will also perform beautifully over the medium term in the cellar. A wonderful mix of ripeness and structure.

The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino opens to dark fruit and dried cherry and a very evident oak note of spice, clove and cinnamon. Those oak impressions are a little too strong and run too deep in my opinion, covering much of the beautiful Sangiovese purity that was so easily obtainable in this classic vintage. This wine remains open and accessible, making it best for near-term drinking with a sausage and cream pasta dish.
