Quite understated for a 2015 Brunello, this shows heather, rose petals and tulips. Hints of bark, red licorice and cedar. Medium-to full-bodied with silky, sleek tannins and lots of mouthwatering acidity drive. Refined and elegant.
Tenuta di Sesta's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is a velvety and sultry wine that boasts classic lines and generous fruit aromas. Released five years after the harvest, this expression of Sangiovese shows aged and open-knit characteristics with dried currant, forest floor, earth and plenty of blue flower. The wine yields softly integrated tannins with a pretty, mid-weight approach to the finish. You might try a traditional Tuscan dish of pappardelle alla lepre for this one. An ample 35,000 bottles were made. ML
The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is firmly rooted in the earth, as black cherry and tea leaves give way to moist soil tones, smoky minerals, and a hint of animal musk. On the palate, fleshy textures usher in polished, ripe black fruits and offsetting savory herbs, with minerals and round tannins slowly saturating the senses. The finish is long and zesty, with citrus-infused tannins and minerals tugging at the cheeks, as dried red fruits and undeniably pretty floral tones slowly fade. This is wonderfully balanced and geared up for mid-term evolution in the cellar. Frankly, I think of it like a swiss army knife of Brunello, pleasing at first pour, but with the stuffing to go ten to fifteen years. Well done. (EG)
Underbrush, dark spice, new leather and menthol aromas lead the nose. Chewy and full bodied, the dense palate evokes fleshy Marasca cherry, licorice, espresso and tobacco accompanied by velvety tannins. (KO)
