"Bright cherry and berry flavors are allied to a firm backbone in this elegant red. Floral, earth and tobacco accents add detail. Ends on a savory, salty note. Best from 2022 through 2038. 3,000 cases made, 1,200 cases imported. -BS" (WS)

"The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino reveals an elegant bouquet with bright aromas of wild berry, blue flower and soft spice. These elements are carefully balanced to build the intensity and subtle but enduring power of the wine. There is firm structure at the back, and the wine is defined by its attractive but integrated acidity. You have all the essentials here for a pairing of hearty cheese ravioli topped with black truffle shavings." (WA)

"The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino shows a mix of ripe strawberry and plum, giving way to notes of brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger and worn leather, lifted by dusty red floral tones. On the palate, I find silky textures, showcasing ripe red and blue berry fruits, with sweet spices and slow mounting tannin, as pretty inner florals develop. The finish is long, showing the wine's youthful, clenching wood tannins, yet also kept fresh through brisk acids, as notes of dried red berries and spice slowly fade." (VM)

"There’s a beautiful interplay between bright, primary florals, such as rose petals and tulips and dust, hay bale and dried raspberries. The palate suggests a ripe, powerful persona with chewy, juicy tannins and a fine line of pretty acidity. Best ever. Drink from 2022." (JS)

"Botanical herb, underbrush, new leather and menthol aromas lead the nose. Full bodied and concentrated, the meaty palate features black-cherry extract, tobacco and licorice set against chewy tannins. Drink after 2022. -Kerin O’Keefe" (WE)
