What a nose of dried meat, tar, tobacco, dried boysenberries, red licorice and baking spices. Hearty tannins surround the full-bodied palate from every side, wringing bursting acidity from a full-throttle core of ripe, chewy fruit. The power and intensity are undeniable, but as you seep in the rich dried spices and died meat on the finish, you catch a glimpse of crystalline acidity through the looking glass. Drink in 2025.
The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Vallocchio is dark and floral, leading off with exotic spices and white smoke, then giving way to crushed black cherry, hints of violet, crushed stone, and sweet balsamic notes. On the palate, I find velvety textures, complemented by ripe black cherry and sweet spice, as zesty acids pinch at the senses and red inner florals resonate throughout. The finish is long and youthfully angular, while fine-grained tannins saturate under a mix of tart red berry fruit and lingering acids. (EG)
