Vibrant red. Minerals and violet complement lively red cherry and raspberry aromas on the incisive nose. Then enticingly fresh and well-balanced, with captivating violet inner-mouth perfume to the steely red and black fruit flavors that linger impressively. The delicately peppery finish features polished if youthful tannins and noteworthy purity of fruit. Knockout 2015 Brunello, one of the top half dozen of the year. (Ian D'Agata, Vinous, April 2020)

A very nice wine! Ruby with aromas of berry fruits and sweet herb notes. On the palate cherry, plum and dried fruits with tobacco and cola notes, well balanced on firm but approachable tannins still tightly wound, oak notes. Long finish ending with mineral and earthy notes. Opened after a decant but let this age a few more years, tried twice in last 6 months. Very nice! β€” 6 hours ago

Wow! I would not have expected so much from a young Riserva like this. All the pro critics say wait another year or three. I say drink NOW and lots of it. 😍 β€” 10 days ago

Great wine. Dark, inky and concentrated. Definately in the Modern Corner of the Brunello-ring. Wonderful tannines, lovely acidic core to keep it palatable, versatile and interesting.
To drink now and in the next 5 years.

Luminous red. Delicately smoky and ripe on the nose, with deep raspberry and red cherry aromas complicated by notes of sandalwood, licorice, graphite and sweet pipe tobacco. Full and rich but also very bright, with red and dark berry flavors given life by juicy, harmonious acidity and very nicely framed by supple tannins. Closes long, fresh, and expansive, deeper and less sweet than the estate’s 2018 Rosso di Montalcino also released this year. Utterly delicious and already accessible, this boasts noteworthy elegance and freshness for such a big ripe wine. (Ian D'Agata, Vinous, April 2020)

Good full red. Inviting aromas of ripe plum, red cherry nectar, leather and underbrush. Plump but graceful, with flavors of red fruit, leather and potpourri that are supported by polished tannins tapering nicely on the long, saline finish. In keeping with the warm year, this showy wine is round and creamy but slightly less well delineated than some past vintages of Fossacolle. (Ian D'Agata, Vinous, April 2020)

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2013

I'm not sure I've had a wine evolve so much over the course of a 2 5 hr decant. Sharp vinegar > tart dark cherry > something punch you in mouth savory on the nose (cheese, mushroom, brioche?) > resembling integrated tannins and acid with white chocolate, espresso, licorice > back into predominant cherry, softer tannins, + tertiary notes. I dont know, an interesting ride and worth it. β€” 3 days ago
