This 2015 Brunello is one that is a sure standout. La Fornace is a great example of a vintage that overall was considered challenging and difficult for vintners but those who weathered through nailed it. The fruit launches into an abundance of red plums, figs, spice and everything nice. Lovely cherry wood, cedar wood and subtle vanilla bean. In the mid there is leather and a fine earthiness but integrated. The mouthfeel has great grape skin tannin and a firm finish. This is a very drinkable now Brunello but also a very age-able Brunello. With food I would enjoy this with rustic lasagna of wild boar.
