  1. Poggio Il Castellare Brunello di Montalcino

    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#92944

    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.

  2. 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.

  3. Capanna Brunello di Montalcino

    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#93041

    VN9595 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2020
    Bright deep red. Musky, bracing aromas and flavors of red cherry and orange peel, tarragon and violet. Full and tactile, with racy acidity giving the wine’s deep flavors real cut and grip. Finishes with lingering saline nuances on the clean, refined back end. A rather uncompromising style of Brunello, but very true to type; this will also age extremely well. Capanna has always made excellent solid, traditional Brunellos, but it strikes me as being an estate on a real roll of late.
    SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2020
    Though backed by stiff tannins, the cherry and strawberry flavors at the core are pure and defined. Earth, iron and woodsy elements accent the fruit. Rights itself in the end, showing fine equilibrium. Best from 2023 through 2042. 3,250 cases made, 1,000 cases imported.

  4. Altesino Brunello di Montalcino

    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#92493

    RP9595 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Jan 2020
    The Altesino 2015 Brunello di Montalcino shows beautiful depth and latitude, with broad fruit aromas of dark cherry and cassis that recall the warmth and golden sunlight of the vintage. The wine is deceivingly streamlined in terms of mouthfeel, but that slim and buttoned-down backbone supports a broad range of flavors and sensations, from lavender essence and camphor ash to moist soil and toasted spice. All of these elements are delivered with impressive harmony and unity, and I expect that this wine will continue on a slow, steady and satisfying aging trajectory over the next 10 years or more. Fruit is sourced from across 21 hectares of vines with tufaceous limestone soils and Alberese rock, which contributes to the freshness and balanced structure of the wine. The wine was bottled in June 2019 (with 150,000 bottles made), and this wine was released in January 2020.
    SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2020
    Juicy, featuring licorice, wild herb and earth notes that complement the macerated cherry and strawberry fruit flavors. Balanced, with light tannins leaving a dusty feel on the finish. Best from 2023 through 2038. 12,500 cases made, 3,000 cases imported.

  5. Campogiovanni Brunello di Montalcino

    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#93040

    JS9494 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Wednesday, July 1, 2020
    Lots of ripe berries, plums and cherries with hints of toffee and chocolate on the nose. It’s full-bodied with round, juicy tannins and a flavorful finish. Lots of ripe tannins. A rich, structured Brunello. Needs time to soften. Better after 2023.
    VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2020
    Good deep, lively red. Expressive, complex nose offers blueberry, strawberry, cinnamon, sassafras, old rare leather and iron. Then similarly complex on the supple palate, but with good energy and focus for such an easygoing, broad wine. The notes of red fruit and sweet spices linger nicely on the savory finish.
    SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2020
    The core of cherry and plum flavors is shaded by tobacco, spice and woodsy notes in this firm, dry red. Exhibits a Mediterranean feel, with wild herb and sun-baked loam accents on the finish. Best from 2023 through 2042. 7,000 cases made, 1,500 cases imported.

  6. Molino del Piano Brunello di Montalcino

    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#94012

    VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2020
    The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Molino del Piano bristles with earthy minerals, savory herbs, and animal tones, with sour cherry and hints of dried strawberries in the background. On the palate, soft textures give way to a zesty expression, as brisk acids energize a mix of spiced cherry, and inner florals, with earthy mineral tones forming toward the finale. The finish is long and spicy, resonating on floral-laced red fruits and a buzz of lingering acids. The 2015 Molino del Piano is a bit beastly, like an unruly teenager, but I must admit that I like it quite a bit.
    JS9393 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Sunday, September 20, 2020
    I like the cherry and peach character to this with a hint of raw meat. Medium to full body, creamy tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink or hold.

  7. 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.
    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.

  8. Celestino Pecci Brunello di Montalcino

    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#93373

    JS9797 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, December 21, 2020
    This is an extremely refined, focused young Brunello with subtle, enticing aromas of flowers and black cherries that follow through to a medium to full body, ultra-fine tannins and a finish that lasts for minutes. Best I have ever had from here. A young Brunello that already shows so much class now, but better in two or three years. Better after 2022 and beyond.
    WE9191 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 5/1/2020
    This offers aromas of ripe black-skinned berry, scorched earth and leather. The dense palate presents ripe black cherry, tobacco and star anise alongside firm chewy tannins. Drink 2022–2030.
    VN9090 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2020
    The 2015 Celestino Pecci Brunello di Montalcino shows the warmth of the vintage through its first wave of dark, ripe black cherry, yet balances it well with more time in the glass, adding savory herbs, stone dust and dried roses. On the palate, velvety textures usher in a mix of red berries, minerals and savory spice, supported by juicy acids, as pretty inner florals amass toward the close. The finish is long and surprisingly structured, as grippy tannins clench the senses, yet there’s plenty of primary fruit to maintain balance.

  9. 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.

  10. Fossacolle Brunello di Montalcino

    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#93239

    JS9797 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Sunday, September 20, 2020
    Excellent ripeness of fruit here with glazed strawberries, blood oranges, red licorice and dried spices. Superb density and focus to the centre palate, which is layered, ornate, plush but balanced. The finish goes on and on with nutmeg, tar and saffron. Wonderful length and intensity. Drink from 2024.
    RP9393 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Jan 2020
    The Fossacolle 2015 Brunello di Montalcino shows a prominent mineral note of crushed stone and talc powder. It becomes a fitting segue to more typical aromas of wild berry fruit and balsam herbs. There is some firmness or tannic bite on the close that suggests extra cellar aging is required. Even just a few years should be enough to shave it off. This wine is tightly coiled and inward-looking at this early stage in the game. The finish is structured and angular, but it just needs to open. Fruit comes from a 2.5-hectare vineyard with full southwest-facing exposures. Some 17,000 bottles will be released in February 2020.
    VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2020
    Good full red. Inviting aromas of ripe plum, red cherry nectar, leather and underbrush. Plump but graceful, with flavors of red fruit, leather and potpourri that are supported by polished tannins tapering nicely on the long, saline finish. In keeping with the warm year, this showy wine is round and creamy but slightly less well delineated than some past vintages of Fossacolle.

    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#93056

    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.
    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.

    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.
