The Renieri estate is located in the southern part of Montalcino on high altitude slopes. This Brunello di Montalcino from the outstanding 2015 vintage is given a double ageing process. The initial ageing takes place in French oak barriques and lasts about 2 years, during which the sediments are removed by frequent racking.
“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. Drink in 2025.” James Suckling 100 points.
