Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2015
This is a wine known as the ultimate expression of Sangiovese Grosso in a glass. Uncorking this bottle is like traveling with the senses through space and time, getting to know Tuscany, understanding its nuances, and learning about its historical and evolutionary profiles. The Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2015 has become part of the great family of Carpineto. And it has done so with all its structure, importance and elegance.
It is difficult to talk about this wonderfully complex wine without talking about the senses. It is necessary to talk about what one feels when the nostrils and palate are filled with unique scents and flavors, typical of this historic terroir. The Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2015 is the product of our best grapes, grown in the vineyard that we – not surprisingly – call Paradise. The grapes are hand-picked and placed in special boxes in order to preserve their integrity during the very short journey from the vineyards to the cellar.
After the vinification, carried out thanks to indigenous yeasts in steel tanks at a controlled temperature, and after the long maceration of the skins, the wine matures for at least 42 months in oak barrels of different sizes. It is then bottled without any filtration process – this particular feature makes it completely vegan friendly.
After its time in the cellar, the Brunello di Montalcino Riserva can finally be enjoyed in a glass. At first sight the color is an intense ruby red, thanks to the strong anthocyanin concentration of Sangiovese. It is also characterized by light garnet reflections. The olfactory sensations fully perceive – and even anticipate – the sumptuousness of the sip to come – great intensity, evident persistence, absolute finesse. The bouquet ranges from primary aromas of wild berries to secondary aromas of spices, vanilla and toasted scents. Although still in its infancy (five years for a Brunello Riserva, which is a very young age), the wine already has a very marked balance and elegance, precursors of an evolutionary profile yet to be discovered.
Each sip is full, soft, warm and enveloping. The balance is also evident to the taste, despite – we repeat – its young age. Our Brunello Riserva 2015 is the perfect expression of a five-star vintage which has already given us enormous satisfaction. One mention worth boasting about are the 95 points awarded by the prestigious Doctor Wine guide by Daniele Cernilli, which includes our Brunello Riserva among their 15-best tasted. This is a bottle to give to others and to treat yourself to for an authentic experience beyond the ordinary wine.
