"The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino presents a bouquet that leads with subtle cherry, strawberry, and hints of cedar, opening over time to show an alluring mix of sweet spice, dusty florals and air-dried meats. Soft textures contrast savory spice and woodland berries, yet the 2015 remains creamy, as red fruit coasts across the senses, guided by brisk acids and minerals. The finish is medium in length, with brisk acids tugging at the senses, and hints of tannin that resonate under a pretty display of lingering floral tones."

"Bright medium red. Curious nuances of red beets complement red cherry and licorice aromas and flavors. Closes long and clean, with hints of stony red cherry. Not a monster of concentration, but sleek and well balanced, actually quite good. Well done."

"This is a ripe, decadent Brunello with dried blackberries, ash and vanilla. Full-bodied and dense with extracted tannins and tarry accents. A plush style that will soften, given time. Drink from 2026."

"Concentrated and dense, delivering black cherry, blackberry, tar and iron flavors, backed by massive tannins that leave a dusty impression on the finish. Best from 2024 through 2038. 4,580 cases made, 1,600 cases imported. — BS"
100% Sangiovese Grosso grown in galestro soils at an altitude of 400 meters. All estate fruit! Fermentation takes place in stainless steel followed by aging in large Slavonian oak for one year. Wine is then transferred to large French oak casks for an additional two years before bottling. Aromas of raspberry and cherry, backed up by notes of mint, earthy spice, and chocolate. Medium-bodied on the palate with the perfect mix of sweet fruit notes and ripe tannins.
