Please note: this is a review of the Costello, Romitorio Brunello di Montalcino￼ *Reserva*, vintage 2015. I’m pretty sure this is a different wine than listed in the Delectable￼ app.
2015 opened October 2023. Raw leather and raspberries on the nose. Pomegranate fruit on the front. Medium tannic structure that’s tightly closed with a lot of minerality. Long finish that’s tart but fades into a warm honey feeling on the back of the throat. This is a lovely wine that’s both challenging and satisfying. — 12 days ago
Drinking beautifully… dark cherry, light spice, fruit forward with tannins dissipating after 15 minutes in the decanter. This remains a marvelous Chianti in the traditional style as Laura Bianchi continues the legacy of this great family of vintners. — 7 days ago

Wow. This product is great. Recommended by crush wines and it was a winner. A little tart. Went with a variety of foods - and not all Italian themed. A great glass to enjoy on its own. So happy I bought three bottles. Buy. You will not be disappointed — 15 days ago
Intense and still young chianti which started blossoming after 2hrs in the decanter. Spiced red fruit bonanza with black tea and forst floor. Very long and intense. Served with Italian Peposo beef stew, a sublime combination . — 25 days ago
