2015 Renieri Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1490057 100 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Earthy aromas of bark, sand, truffles, graphite, rust, terracotta and sandalwood rise up from the deep with Burgundian poise; fruitier orange zest and preserved lemons glimmer in their wake, while riper incense and tar lurk in this dense forest of aromas. Physics itself gives way as the line between reduction and oxidation is blurred. There's such richness to the center palate, but the fruit there is vivacious and elegant, swaddled in robust but generous tannins that breach the outermost reaches of the mouth. The finish is hauntingly long, the after effects of the acidity unworldly. This is certainly in a quiet, reserved stage of evolution, and will need time to fully mature in bottle. Inner quote mark (10/2019)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A concentrated red, with intense flavors of black cherry, plum, violet, stony mineral and wild herbs. Ample flesh covers the dense matrix of tannins, but this retains plenty of structure and should develop well. Offers a lingering, salty aftertaste. (BS) Inner quote mark (6/2020)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The Renieri 2015 Brunello di Montalcino takes a slightly different read of the vintage, with drier and more austere fruit flavors. I get some tannic astringency as well on the finish with a point of bitterness. Compared to many of its peers that produced soft and richly opulent wines in the warm 2015 vintage, Renieri's expression is a bit more angular and edgy. You get dark fruit tones with sour cherry and spice on the close. One thing it does share in common is that balsamic aromatic intensity that you encounter so readily in Brunello from the classic 2015 vintage. (ML) Inner quote mark (1/2020)
