Castello Romitorio Brunello di Montalcino 2015
|Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino
The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is laced with spicy, dark red fruits, wild, sweet and spicy floral tones that give way to savory herbs, hints of animal musk and black earth. On the palate, it's soft, enveloping, almost creamy in texture and offset by a mix of savory spice, fine tannin and saturating mineral tones as black cherry and sage seem to hover on the senses. The finish is spicy and long, structured, but also with vibrant primary fruits holding on strong, as a twang of savory herbs lingers long.
Bright cherry and currant flavors signal this muscular red, shaded by mineral and underbrush accents. Compact and full of tension, this is long and commands attention on the finish. Best from 2023 through 2040. 392 cases imported. - BS
