If you haven’t had a chance to stock up on amazing 2015 Brunellos, now is your chance. Lazzeretti is a relative new-comer in Brunello, but the brother and sister team, Marco and Julia, are doing great things. They personally oversee the production and business and turn up about 2,000 cases per year. Only 700 cases were imported. At this price, with these scores, they won’t last long.
James Suckling 96
This is a very, very intense Brunello with explosive spices, cedar, leather, tar and a plethora of dried plums and berries. The full-bodied palate is incredibly dense and bold, swathed in vast, comprehensive tannins and layer upon layer of plums and cherries. There’s marvelous length and decadence to the finish, where the dried-spice character goes on and on. Stunning richness. Drink from 2025.
Wine Spectator 93
A monolithic red, with sweetness to the black cherry, black currant and raspberry fruit. Earth and iron notes anchor the bottom end, while a tobacco accent frames the dense tannins. Offers a long finish, showing solid grip. Best from 2023 through 2042. 1,500 cases made, 700 cases imported.
