    Brunello di Montalcino "Vallocchio" DOCG 2015

    Royal is this powerful and long-lasting Brunello from the great vintage 2015, using only the best grapes from our own vineyards for this selection. It perfectly embodies the powerful elegance of the great Tuscan red wines. Ruby red, with a space-filling bouquet. One tastes the dense dark berry fruit, roast and tobacco aromas accompany the lingering finish. SUPERIORE.DE

    " Manifold aromas of rose hips, spices and lilac; in the mouth juicy, the acidity accentuated and crisp, the final smooth and long. Combines substance and finesse." Vinum

    "Warm, quite deep scent of preserved red and black berries with slightly toasted and cedar wood notes, plum notes, a little tobacco, liquorice and spicy aromas. Firm, very juicy, ripe fruit, slightly smoky and cedar wood spice, some acid bite and present, yet very fine tannin, tar and tobacco on the palate, ethereal notes, salt in the background, a lot of power, but well-integrated alcohol, a touch of ice confectionery, plus dried herbs, very good, firm, juicy finish." Wein-Plus

    "Intense, dark ruby red. Delicate spiciness on the nose of smoke and pepper, light undergrowth, truffle, liquorice. On the palate very polished with tight tannin, powerful, shows ripe fruit nuances." Falstaff

    "A broad, powerful version, featuring black cherry, plum, tar, iron and underbrush flavors that mingle with the thick, pointed tannins. Ripe fruit occupies the center, offsetting the muscular structure, while the finish lingers, picking up a salty element." Wine Spectator

    "The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Vallocchio shows depth and a more sophisticated approach with ample textural richness and more evident spice and smoke from its oak aging. However, the style fundamentally embraces the same lithe and lifted elegance that we saw in Fanti's classic Brunello. The color saturation of the Vallocchio is a degree or two darker, and the bouquet reveals dark cherry, tilled earth, cola and smoked cedar wood. Give the wine a few more years in your cellar to flesh out." Robert Parker

    "What a nose of dried meat, tar, tobacco, dried boysenberries, red licorice and baking spices. Hearty tannins surround the full-bodied palate from every side, wringing bursting acidity from a full-throttle core of ripe, chewy fruit. The power and intensity are undeniable, but as you seep in the rich dried spices and died meat on the finish, you catch a glimpse of crystalline acidity through the looking glass." James Suckling
