Nice acid level, tannins resolved, some fruit. At Keens.

2017 vintage. Was dead set against picking up any 2017 vintage Brunello, regardless of producer. That aged well. Oops. Clearly evident concentration, length, balance and ripeness. Better luck saying “over my dead body” and actually meaning it tomorrow. 3.7.23. — 12 days ago

2015 Renieri Brunello Di Montalcino - This wine gives lots of richness and structure. Tannins are still not fully integrated, but improved from my last try a couple years ago. FWIW, James Suckling gave this wine 100pts. This was my second time with this one, and while I still don’t see the 100pts, I do see it as delicious and for me that matters more than points.
Winemaker notes says it best - this wine opens with earthy aromas of bark, sand, truffles, graphite, rust, terracotta and sandalwood. Fruitier orange zest and lemon. Ripe, incense and with dense forest of aromas. Rich to the center palate, the fruit is vivacious and elegant. Robust and generous tannins. The finish is long, the after effects of the acidity unworldly. — 15 days ago
