Renieri Brunello di Montalcino 2015 yields from fruit grown on vines that bask in day-long warmth on south-facing slopes with views across the spectacular volcanic Monte Amiata.

Their high altitude location also provides cooling relief at night to aid perfectly slow, gradual ripening. This wonderful location together with naturally low yields produces high quality, concentrated grapes bursting with refined dark berry Brunello fruit and deliciously supple tannins.

"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." James Suckling

"The Renieri 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is dark and intense in its aromatics, displaying a mix of earthy mineral and soil tones, offset by crushed black cherry, savory herbs, leather, and spice. On the palate, soft, fleshy textures usher in ripe cherry fruits, offset by a mix of brisk acids and saturating minerals, as hints of exotic spice buzz upon the senses, leaving a coating of fine tannin in their wake." Eric Guido
