    Brunello di Montalcino "Montosoli 40 anni" DOCG 2015

    Montosoli 2015 in bright ruby and with a clear bouquet of raspberry, blood orange and hot spices. Strict elegance on the palate, red fruits, flowers, tobacco and grass, with a slightly salty minerality, long finish. A Burgundy style with the tannin and structure of a great Brunello from an equally great vintage. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Medium red; fruity, also cassis, arouses curiosity; round base, sweetness, good length, very pleasant." Merum

    " Flower of violets and raspberries, also elegant balsamic notes; elegant structure with fine-grained tannins and beautiful progression towards aromas of ripe fruit, leather and dried flowers. A good accompaniment to food." Vinum

    "Quite deep, firm scent of ripe mixed berries and a little cherry with delicate nutty and spicy aromas, a touch of bacon, pepper and mineral tones. Clear, firm, polished, rather juicy fruit with bite and youthful, yet very fine tannins, persistent on the palate, a little peppery spice in the background, also a little wood and roasting, a touch of tobacco and herbs, restrained power, good depth, nutty notes, multi-layered, very good, firm, juicy and spicy finish with salt and draught." Wein-Plus

    "Bright ruby with a fine garnet shimmer. Very clear, appealing nose of fresh, ripe cherries, some dried orange peel and cloves. Blossoms beautifully on the palate, very well worked out, present fruit, fresh cherry, opens with a lot of fine-meshed tannin, builds up for a long time." Falstaff

    "Rich and round, featuring cherry, raspberry, floral and mineral aromas and flavors. Graceful and intense, showing terrific balance, with a long, fruit-, tobacco- and mineral-tinged aftertaste. Exhibits fine purity and freshness." Wine Spectator

    "Underbrush, mature berry and exotic spice aromas mingle with a whiff of leather. Firmly structured and linear, the palate features ripe Marasca cherry, cranberry, licorice and tobacco while tightly wound, fine-grained tannins provide the backbone. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced. Give it time to fully develop." Wine Enthusiast

    "The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli has a dark, hauntingly beautiful bouquet, displaying ripe blackberry and cherry with spicy, dark florals, as well as a hint of animal musk, which manages to ground the experience in the earth. On the palate, velvety textures, offset by tart red and black fruits, with juicy acidity maintain balance, as sweet cherries and rosemary give way to a core of minerality and hints of fine tannin. It finishes long and elegant, showing dark inner florals, ripe blackberry and lingering sweet spices. It’s interesting to taste this next to the classic Brunello from 2015, as I find them to be equally enjoyable, but for completely different reasons." Vinous

    "Altesino's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli shows those celebrated characteristics of this special vineyard cru that are always portrayed with pronounced mineral intensity, with highlights of crushed granite and pencil shaving. Indeed, Altesino's five-hectare Montosoli vineyard sees a greater concentration of clay schist Galestro rock, and the vineyard altitude (at 350 meters above sea level) adds to the wine's perceived freshness. In this case, those mineral notes are applied with small brush strokes, as the core of the wine is occupied by wild fruit and forest berry. Medicinal herb and rosemary essence appear quietly at the back. This is a very compact and bright wine with young tannins and solid structure. It has all the attributes you look for in a candidate that can withstand long cellar aging. I'd suggest waiting five years or more before popping this cork." Robert Parker

    "A very nuanced but powerful Brunello showing hibiscus, raspberry tea, gunpowder, petrichor, dried orange rind and spearmint. The rows of sharp tannins are very defined and agile, and the acidity is tensely strung up in overtures of vivacious red fruit. A beautiful, nimble Brunello 2015. Drink from 2024." James Suckling
