La Colombina Brunello di Montalcino 2015
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
Wine AdvocateLa Colombina's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino takes a classic approach with a fine texture and a steady delivery of aromas that grow cautiously in intensity the longer the wine sits in the glass. This Brunello is stitched together carefully with wild and forest fruit aromas that segue to pressed blue flower, spice and light balsam herb. Released five years after the harvest, according to the Brunello appellation rules, this wine has had the time to integrate and smooth out. There are no hard edges here, and the mouthfeel is silky and polished. This is a classic expression of Brunello that ages in oak for 36 months. Some 17,000 bottles were released in January 2020.
VinousBright light red. Very floral on the nose, with aromas of violet and peony complicated by red berries. Fresh and juicy in the mouth, with precise Sangiovese-accurate flavors of red currants, tea leaf, flint and blood orange. Closes long and fruity with very little in the way of herbal elements. Lovely wine.
