Brandy di Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2015

Light brick color; delicate nose of dried and ripe red cherries, strawberries, and currant, and some anise, ceder, intense floral notes, and a ”watery” minerality; very fine tannins and medium alcohol and acid levels, more elegant than powerful, fruit- and spice-driven palate-coating taste with long finish. This wine is well made and correct but rather unexceptional. — 12 days ago

40 Years Together Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2015

Tried ‘14 & ‘15 together. The name of the estate comes from "Ca' Pazzo", shown on ancient maps. Caparzo is owned by Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini, she also owns Altesino. Deep Ruby with berry fruit aromas with cedar, herbs and smoke, aged for 2 years on oak. On the palate cherry, plum & cranberry flavors, with leather, cacao, spice and tobacco notes. Lively acidity, fine approachable tannins, long ending with spicy oak finish. ‘15 a bit better! — 10 months ago

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2015

Cherries, bramble, dust and leather. Medium to full with mellow and pleasant acidity and integrated tannin. This wine made everyone sit up and say “wow”. — 24 days ago

Montosoli Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 1997

Fruit is fading, giving way to lovely notes of tobacco, leather, dried herbs and porcini.
Slightly drying finish prevents this wine from an excellent score.

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2015

2015. 9.1+. Just too young. Same problem as with Altesino: takes forever to open up, very salty and tart, then thins out and fades. Very good producer. Going to stop opening the better 2015 Brunellos and will revisit. $50 on Delectable. — a year ago

Our 40th Harvest Brunello-di-Montalcino Sangiovese 2012

Wow! Spectacular! 40th harvest brunello is amazing! I'm sad I only have one more. Highly recommend and drinking very well now but will age another decade easily. — a month ago

Riserva Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2004

On the nose old Cohiba leaf and cherry stems. Completely resolved and beautifully broad, elements of cherry pit, dried red fruit, candied cherry and dark chocolate all combine beautifully to a finish that veers towards Bordeaux. Long, dry and smooth finish. Outstanding. A few years left to the beginning of the end. — 5 months ago
