Beautiful Sangiovese, long burn, sweet tannins but also right level of acidity, salinity and minerality. Full bodied, spice, leather, tobacco. Color is very evolved for its young age, would love a bit more clarity, this bottle has a brown hue but tastes 100 pct right, strange. Will be at its peak in 5 to 6 years but tastes great now.

The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Vecchie Vigne presents an extroverted mix of both red and blue berry fruits, complemented by notes of sweet spice, milk chocolate and plum. On the palate, silky textures play host to ripe red and black fruits, laced with savory herbs, hints of olive, and saline-minerals. The finish is long and structured, resonating on zesty acids and spice, as notes of dried cherry and dark inner florals slowly fade. To be honest, I didn’t expect such a brilliant and balanced showing on the palate, and I believe that once the Vecchie Vigne sheds some of its sweet fruit on the nose, it will show beautifully from start to finish.

This was 100pts and James Suckling #1 wine in 2019 it was great and still young. Benefits from 1 hour of air, like most brunelli. Incredibly balanced and wonderful umami, tea leaf, leather, kirsch and just yum. Fabu wine that I’ll cellar at least a 6pk of to enjoy Over the years to come.
