Tasting Notes: You just can’t beat the purity of the bouquet here: cherries, red liquorice, blue flowers and currants. It’s all stunning. Il Marroneto’s 2015 Brunello di Montalcino opens to a light garnet colour with faint ruby highlights. The wine never veers from its lanes, sticking to an absolutely traditional and fresh expression from the appellation. It offers a lean-to medium-weight mouthfeel with radiant fruit flavours—think pure cherry fruit. The fruit is harvested from a five-hectare parcel at 300 meters above sea level with calcareous sand and Galestro soils. These conditions lead to the aromatic intensity of the wine, and that’s the main takeaway in this classic vintage. There is a moment of softness that expands quickly over the palate. These results are graceful and gorgeous.
