About

95

Lots of blue fruit with black-cherry and black-truffle aromas that follow through to a full body with round and velvety tannins and lots of ripe fruit and creamy undertones. The tannins just melt into the wine. Drink in 2022, but already so delicious.

92 Monica Larner - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

This is a new, single-vineyard wine from Verbena. The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Le Pope is driven by dark, sultry fruit and sweet oak. Those two contrasting sides of the wine build a powerful fruit profile and determined momentum. The fruit is strong and well defined in this vintage; however, there is a lot of oak spice and toast added to the mix, calling for some smoked brisket. The wine sports a thick and darkly saturated appearance.
