  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. Fanti Brunello di Montalcino

    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#92715

    JS9595 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Thursday, November 7, 2019
    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.
    SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2020
    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.
    VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2020
    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.

  3. Collosorbo Brunello di Montalcino

    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#92496

    VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2020
    Dusty black cherries, cinnamon, sage, dried florals and savory spice lift effortlessly from the glass, forming a bouquet that keeps me coming back again and again. The palate is laced with silky textures, along with pure ripe cherry and plum, mineral underpinnings and subtle spice. Brisk acids and fine tannins mingle, presenting a wonderfully balanced experience. The finish is long and savory, with dried cherries and minerals resonating over a coating of refined tannins punctuated by lingering spice.
    SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2020
    Rich, boasting fleshy black cherry, plum, earth and graphite aromas and flavors. Chunky tannins provide support as this persists through the lingering finish. Fine balance. Best from 2023 through 2042. 5,000 cases made, 1,300 cases imported.
    RP9191 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Jan 2020
    The Collosorbo 2015 Brunello di Montalcino immediately makes its warm-vintage DNA clear and present. I tasted this wine right after the 2018 Rosso di Montalcino from the same producer, and the fruit profile of the two wines is completely different, thus illustrating the exuberant character of the 2015 vintage against the more reserved nature of 2018. This wine is plump and soft with robust notes of candied cherry, purple plum and tangy spice. The tannins are soft and velvety, and the role of the acidity is somewhat downplayed. The wine could use a touch more freshness. However, this Brunello ultimately comes across as an immediate and approachable expression to drink in the near and medium term. Some 60,000 bottles were made.

  4. La Colombina Brunello di Montalcino

    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#92497

    RP9393 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Jan 2020
    La Colombina’s 2015 Brunello di Montalcino takes a classic approach with a fine texture and a steady delivery of aromas that grow cautiously in intensity the longer the wine sits in the glass. This Brunello is stitched together carefully with wild and forest fruit aromas that segue to pressed blue flower, spice and light balsam herb. Released five years after the harvest, according to the Brunello appellation rules, this wine has had the time to integrate and smooth out. There are no hard edges here, and the mouthfeel is silky and polished. This is a classic expression of Brunello that ages in oak for 36 months. Some 17,000 bottles were released in January 2020.
    SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2020
    A supple, juicy version, revealing macerated cherry, sandalwood, tobacco and iron flavors. The bright acidity is matched to well-integrated tannins, giving this red a harmonious feel. Offers a fine, mouthwatering finish. Best from 2022 through 2040. 1,400 cases made, 300 cases imported.
    VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2020
    Bright light red. Very floral on the nose, with aromas of violet and peony complicated by red berries. Fresh and juicy in the mouth, with precise Sangiovese-accurate flavors of red currants, tea leaf, flint and blood orange. Closes long and fruity with very little in the way of herbal elements. Lovely wine.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino

    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#92246

    RP9797 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Jan 2020
    The Il Poggione 2015 Brunello di Montalcino shows a darker and more concentrated appearance than many of its peers. The wine is beautifully abundant and fragrant in the most exuberant and expressive manner. You will recognize aromas of moist soil, tobacco and smoke. Candied cherry hovers over the entire bouquet. Fruit is sourced from older vines (all over 25 years old). Il Poggione occupies a special spot within the Montalcino appellation, and the area always produces slightly more concentrated and powerful wines. I find that to be particularly true in this gorgeous 2015 vintage. I am also very attracted to that almost dusty note of crushed mineral that rides long on the full-bodied finish. Il Poggione’s Brunello is also distinguished by firm, youthful tannin that need a few more years to unwind. Luckily, there are quite a few bottles to go around, with some 200,000 made.
    JS9696 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Thursday, November 7, 2019
    So many sour cherries rise up from the glass, along with orange rind and lemon peel. The full-bodied palate has a very serious and concentrated core of florals and fruit, and the tannins have an iron-fisted, strapping build. Long, chewy and structured. One of the best in years from here. Drink from 2025.
    SP9595 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2020
    Wild herb and Mediterranean macchia notes mark this expressive red. Though well-endowed with tannins, this is on the sleek side, showing vibrant acidity. Cherry, strawberry, floral and tobacco flavors join the party as this cruises to a long finish. Best from 2023 through 2042. 9,000 cases made, 1,750 cases imported.

  8. 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.

  9. Fossacolle Brunello di Montalcino

    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#93239

    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.

    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#93571

    JS9797 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Sunday, September 20, 2020
    This understated Brunello delivers dried cherries, cumin, terracotta, rust and bark. The full-bodied palate presents an intricately detailed tapestry of finely interwoven tannins, interspersed with compressed, vibrant cherries and gilded in colorful, gleaming acidity. The finish is vivacious and polished and very long. Drink from 2024.
    RP9595 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Jan 2020
    Poggio Antico brings us a classic expression of Sangiovese in its 2015 Brunello di Montalcino. The warm vintage has shaped more density and volume in the fruit, but fundamentally this wine holds tight to the bright and fresh taste profile that is characteristic of Brunello. The key is the acidity that remains an integral and important element in the fundamental architecture of this wine. That natural crispness serves to underline lively fruit flavors of wild cherry and pressed violets. Background tones of earth and black licorice also appear. The team at Poggio Antico, located at one of the highest altitudes in the appellation (from 500 to 550 meters above sea level), has worked well to preserve the cool climate characteristics in this very warm and sunny vintage. Some 36,000 bottles were made. This wine went into bottle in August 2018 and hit the market in January 2020.
    VN94+94+ pts. - Vinous - Apr 2020
    Bright red with a pale rim. Captivating aromas of ripe red fruits, blueberry nectar, marzipan and Oriental spices. Boasts outstanding inner-mouth perfume and precise flavors of ripe red cherry, redcurrant jelly, potpourri and minerals. Finishes long and seamless. This is one of the best non-single vineyard Brunellos of the vintage and one of the better wines from Poggio Antico in some time.
    SP9494 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2020
    Cherry, plum, earth, wild scrub and salty flavors are the hallmarks of this dense, hefty red. An iron note becomes more prominent as this evolves on the palate. Well-balanced, with the ripe fruit and saline elements lingering on the finish. Best from 2023 through 2043. 3,000 cases made, 1,200 cases imported.
    WE9292 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 7/1/2020
    Forest floor, mature red berry, dried tobacco leaf and balsamic whiffs of camphor come together on this. It’s firm and concentrated, delivering dried black cherry, licorice and coffee bean framed in velvety tannins. Drink 2022–2027.

  11. 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.

  12. Gianni Brunelli Brunello di Montalcino

    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#92499

    RP9696 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Jan 2020
    The Gianni Brunelli Le Chiuse di Sotto team is on a roll, and these last few vintages have really hit it out of the ballpark. Their latest release, the charming 2015 Brunello di Montalcino, is one of the stars of the vintage. This wine exudes the warmth and sheer exuberance of the growing season, which was beautifully warm and sunny. Yet it also stays true to the promise of Montalcino that strives for elegance, poise and longevity. This is a classic interpretation that offers a very precise and pure window onto the Sangiovese grape, with its tight aromas of wild cherry, medical herb and pressed blue flowers. The wine is a blend of fruit from both sides of Montalcino, the north side and the southeast. Between the two sites you get a mix of schist, sand, clay, tufo and Galestro soil. That’s pretty much the whole rainbow from the appellation. Some 16,846 bottles were made (not including large-format bottles), and the wine was released in January 2020.
    VN9696 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2020
    The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino opens with a bouquet that is dark and captivating, reminding me of picking ripe strawberries right off the vine, as its pretty, dark red fruits mingle with earth tones and hints of floral stems, then spiced orange and sweet minerality slowly develope in the glass. On the palate, it floods the senses with textures like fine velvet, yet not heavy in any way, instead guided by brisk acids and minerals, carrying fleshy dark red fruits with hints of savory herbs and spice. As the textural experience comes to a close, it reveals a coating of round tannins, with sweet red fruits, spices and pretty floral tones lingering on and on. What a gorgeous expression of vintage character complemented by this house’s classic style. Even in its youth, the 2015 Gianni Brunelli will have a lot of fans, but it should also do well over the next ten to fifteen years in the cellar.
    SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2020
    This elegant red delivers cherry, iron, leather and tobacco flavors, backed by a vibrant structure. Balanced, with firm, well-proportioned tannins and a long, mouthwatering finish. Best from 2022 through 2040. 650 cases made, 200 cases imported.

    Extremely perfumed and pretty with plum and black-cherry aromas, as well has just hints of cedar. Full body, chewy tannins and lots of fruit. Yet, it’s always reserved and beautiful. Needs three or four years to come together. Drink after 2022.
    SP9494 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2020
    This alluring red combines bright strawberry and cherry fruit with salty, savory notes of mineral, loamy earth, tobacco and wild herbs. Solidly built, exhibiting dense tannins and fresh appeal, this remains balanced and long. Best from 2022 through 2040. 6,000 cases made, 2,000 cases imported.

    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

    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.
