Cerbaia Brunello di Montalcino

2015 / 750 ml.

Item #: 92520

JS9595 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Thursday, November 7, 2019
An opulent Brunello, suggesting glacé cherries, strawberry ice-cream, peppermint tea and dried cloves. Full-bodied and very structured, muscling sturdy layers of tannins and rolling sheets of dark fruit into ironclad balls of flavor and texture. Long and fruit-driven on the finish. Drink from 2024.
RP9393 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Jan 2020
This wine reveals a beautifully rich and saturated appearance as it pours from the bottle. The Cerbaia 2015 Brunello di Montalcino offers a pretty presentation of Sangiovese-driven aromas with small berries, underbrush, moist potting soil and blue flowers. All of these aromas are perfectly tied to the variety. In the mouth, Cerbaia’s interpretation is lean and crisp with medium weight and a long, silky mouthfeel. It does feel thin on the mid-palate and tapers out to a medium or short finish. Fruit comes from a 4.5-hectare vineyard with Galestro-rich soils. Some 18,000 bottles were released in January 2020.

Val di Suga Brunello di Montalcino

2015 / 750 ml.

Item #: 92764

JS9292 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Thursday, November 7, 2019
A dense and linear red with medium to full body, chewy tannins and a slightly extracted finish. Needs time to soften. Better after 2022.
VN9191 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2020
The 2015 Val di Suga Brunello di Montalcino is spicy and intense, leading off with dried cherries, cedar spice box, savory herbs and dusty rose. Silky, almost creamy textures flood the palate with ripe red and black fruits, contrasting saline minerals with cooling acids, as fine tannins slowly settle upon the senses. The finish is long and structured, mixing youthful tension with pretty inner florals, yet the best is yet to come with medium-term cellaring.
SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2020
Elegant, offering cherry, sanguine, iron, earth and tobacco flavors. Sleek and vibrant, with a lingering aftertaste of mineral and tobacco. Best from 2023 through 2038. 10,000 cases made, 1,000 cases imported. (Bruce Sanderson)

Perfumed, this red reveals rose, cherry, raspberry, juniper and sage aromas and flavors. Elegant and detailed, offers bright acidity and fine-grained tannins that add up to finesse and a lingering aftertaste. Best from 2023 through 2042. 2,500 cases made, 1,500 cases imported. (Bruce Sanderson)
VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2020
The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is seductive, with its sweet spices and floral tones in a bouquet that gives way to dusty black cherry with grounding notes of worn leather and shaved cedar. Dark, ripe fruits, propelled by vibrant acids, and a mix of cooling minerals, savory spice, and fine tannins settle in. The finish is long and structured, with resonating acids, as ripe red fruits and sweet spices slowly fade under an air of pretty red florals. This is a gorgeous expression that can be enjoyed now but will also perform beautifully over the medium term in the cellar. A wonderful mix of ripeness and structure.

VN9797 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2020
Fully saturated red. Captivating aromas of red cherry, strawberry nectar, roses, violet and sweet spices. Dense, juicy and extremely well-balanced, with vibrant flavors of red fruit, spices and minerals complicated by notes of sweet pipe tobacco and coffee. The finish is long, precise and very pure. One of the year’s best Brunellos.
SP9696 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2020
Bright cherry and juniper flavors are the main flavor themes, augmented by strawberry, wild thyme, stone and loam notes. Taut, elegant and well-structured, balanced and long. The finish reveals this wine’s potential. Best from 2023 through 2045. 525 cases made. (Bruce Sanderson)
VN9494 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2020
The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Piaggione shows an intense display of crushed raspberry and tart cherry, leaning to the darker and spicier spectrum, showing exotic brown spice, cedar, and shavings of baker’s chocolate. On the palate, soft textures give way to ripe black cherries with a rich, confectionery note, as brisk acids add energy, and saline-minerals slowly saturate. The finish is long, as residual acids sizzle upon the senses, tapering off to reveal pretty red berry fruits with a savory herbal twist. The 2015 Piaggione is already quite open, coming across as almost creamy on the palate, with vibrant primary fruit that nearly masks its structural core.

Voliero Brunello di Montalcino

2015 / 750 ml.

Item #: 93109

RP9494 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Jan 2020
Here’s a confident and genuine expression of Sangiovese that manages to be both accessible and complicated at the same time. Brunello is one of the few Italian wines to bridge the gap between those two extremes. The Voliero 2015 Brunello di Montalcino offers a steady stream of small berry fruit and cherry aromas. But there is width to this bouquet and deeper layers of spice, tar and licorice also play important roles. This Brunello ages in oak for 36 months in order to find harmony and balance. Some 7,866 bottles were made. Those bottles were filled in July 2019 and the wine hit the market in January 2020.
VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2020
Here I’m finding a spicy display of Sangiovese fruit, as dusty dried florals give way to mineral-laced bright cherry, with hints of cedar, leather and white smoke. On the palate, soft textures wash across the senses, ushering in pure red berry fruits, as brisk acids firm up the experience, leaving saline-minerals and fine tannin in their wake. The finish is medium in length and a bit angular, resonating on savory spice with licorice, dried black cherries, inner florals, and a lingering twang of acid. The Voliero needs time to fully come together, yet it is likely to always remain a spicy, acid-driven effort.
SP8989 pts. - Wine Spectator - May 7, 2020
Light-weight, exuding cherry, plum, leather, earth and saline flavors. The ripe fruit gives way to boisterous tannins, staying within bounds but leaving an astringent feel on the finish. Best from 2022 through 2036. 655 cases made, 150 cases imported. (Bruce Sanderson)

Carpineto Brunello di Montalcino

2015 / 750 ml.

Item #: 94172

SP9595 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2020
Silky and elegant, revealing cherry, plum, tobacco, earth and iron flavors. The vibrant structure keeps this red pulsing through the long, mineral-infused finish. Shows fine balance and complexity. Best from 2023 through 2042. 3,000 cases made, 1,250 cases imported. (Bruce Sanderson)
VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2020
Carpineto’s 2015 Brunello di Montalcino rises from the glass with an intense display of orange-tinged strawberry, cedar box, a dusting of spice, animal musk, and dark earth tones. On the palate, velvety textures are contrasted by vibrant acidity, giving lift to its tart red and black berry fruit, as a host of sweet and savory spice develop, and fine tannins slowly mount. It finishes firm yet refined, with cool-toned red berry lingering over saline-minerals and a coating of dry tannins.
RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 15th Oct 2020
Carpineto is a dynamic estate with property in Chianti Classico and Montepulciano in addition to Montalcino, where the fruit is grown on a dry-farmed outcropping at over 500 meters in elevation, sloping gently northward. It is one of the coolest climates in Montalcino, and in fact, it is one of the last vineyards to be picked. Their 2015 Brunello di Montalcino opens to fresh berry aromas with forest floor, wild cherry and cassis, with a good amount of the proverbial red fruit energy in this wine to keep it lively and vivid. Subtle layers of spice and smoke are intermingled at the back. It’s a nice Brunello for a sirloin and mushrooms. Some 30,000 bottles were made.
