Fattoria La Lecciaia Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2015
|Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino
|Fattoria La Lecciaia
The Fattoria La Lecciaia Brunello di Montalcino Riserva lifts up with a classic display of cherry and strawberries, further enhanced by notes of cedar box and spiced, dried orange. It's silky and expansive, boasting dark red fruits and cooling minerality, all backed by zesty acids. Tannins come in yet late; yet they do so with class, creating a structured yet fresh expression, while also promising years of development in the cellar. Very nice.
Earthy aromas reminiscent of scorched earth, violet and baking spice emerge from the glass. The chewy palate offers baked plum, licorice and vanilla alongside rounded tannins. Drink 2022-2029.
