2015 Padelletti Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1510174 95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Aromas of wild berry, underbrush, dried herbs and leather shape the nose. It’s medium in body, with tension and structure that support flavors of pomegranate, red cherry, licorice and tobacco. It’s still young thanks to taut, refined tannins and fresh acidity, but will blossom into a beauty. (KO) Inner quote mark (5/2020)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The historic Padelletti family is one of the first producers of Brunello, starting back when this appellation was founded. Their newest release, the Padelletti 2015 Brunello di Montalcino, is perhaps the darkest and most robust expression I have seen from this estate that always prizes traditionally made wines. The wine sports a firm frame of dark fruit, and you really taste the richness and concentration associated with this growing season. Fruit comes from a four-hectare plot with Alberese limestone rock. Dark cherry and blackberry cede to potting soil and ethereal balsam herb. The wine takes a little while to open in the glass. (ML) 94+ Inner quote mark (1/2020)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A ripe but vibrant Brunello offering aromas of dried orange peel, lemon drizzle cake, balsamic, tar and baking spices. Primary and energetic on the palate, which is medium-to full-bodied and swathed in wiry, firm tannins that ooze polish and class. Finely framed and delicate on the finish. Inner quote mark (10/2019)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The bouquet on the 2015 Padelletti Brunello di Montalcino shows a refined mix of ripe strawberry with hints of cedary spice, lifting florals, peppery herbs and dusty earth tones. Soft, cool-toned textures offset by saturating ripe red berry fruit, with saline minerals and vibrant acids carrying it across the senses with grace. The finish is long, leaving the palate drenched in mineral-laden red fruits and spice, while a twang of youthful tannin punctuates the experience. The 2015 is so easy to like already, yet has the structure to carry it over the medium term in the cellar. (EG) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

91 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Relatively unknown estate but one that has been making wine in Montalcino at least since the 16th century. The approach in the vineyard is organic and the vinification traditional with fermentation in concrete by indigenous yeast and aging in large oak casks only. This Brunello, showing cool cherry and raspberry fruit with polished tannins, is hugely enjoyable and elegant at the same time. Its long, succulent finish reveals both depth and complexity. (WS) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

K&L Notes

92 points Ian D'Agata in Vinous: "Vivid medium-dark red. Steely, clean aromas of red berries, herbs and underbrush, are complemented by a lovely violet topnote. Clean and fresh, with a very refined personality and a savory quality on the long floral, and politely-styled finish. Well done." (04/2020)
