2015 Tenuta di Sesta Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1441244 94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Quite understated for a 2015 Brunello, this shows heather, rose petals and tulips. Hints of bark, red licorice and cedar. Medium-to full-bodied with silky, sleek tannins and lots of mouthwatering acidity drive. Refined and elegant. Drink in 2021. Inner quote mark (10/2019)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is firmly rooted in the earth, as black cherry and tea leaves give way to moist soil tones, smoky minerals, and a hint of animal musk. On the palate, fleshy textures usher in polished, ripe black fruits and offsetting savory herbs, with minerals and round tannins slowly saturating the senses. The finish is long and zesty, with citrus-infused tannins and minerals tugging at the cheeks, as dried red fruits and undeniably pretty floral tones slowly fade. This is wonderfully balanced and geared up for mid-term evolution in the cellar. Frankly, I think of it like a swiss army knife of Brunello, pleasing at first pour, but with the stuffing to go ten to fifteen years. Well done. (EG) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Underbrush, dark spice, new leather and menthol aromas lead the nose. Chewy and full bodied, the dense palate evokes fleshy Marasca cherry, licorice, espresso and tobacco accompanied by velvety tannins. (KO) Inner quote mark (7/2020)

K&L Notes

92+ points Ian D'Agata for Vinous: "Deep red with ruby tinges. Flinty and smoky on the nose, with bright red fruit and floral nuances. Then also very floral in the mouth, with refined red cherry and berry flavors complemented by mineral strokes and hints of graphite, potpourri and Oriental spices. Not as big as some other Brunellos from this vintage, but very elegant and well-balanced." (04/2020)
