Brunello di Montalcino
Sourced from high elevation plantings of Sangiovese near the town of Montalcino, this is one of the Frescobaldi’s flagship wines. From the much heralded 2015 vintage, this deep ruby wine offers a wealth of macerated black fruits and dark toffee undertones. Within the core is a liqueur-like texture and richness to the wine that lasts for minutes. There is a savory character and enough delicate acidity to keep it all together and in balance. The finish is long and persistent. I am certain this wine will evolve nicely into the next decade.
