This 2015 won a perfect score – 100 points – from James Suckling and is sure to move fast.
“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
Renieri is the Montalcino branch of winemaking specialist Marco Bacci’s Bacci Wineries, sharing the stage with Bacci’s main Castello di Bossi estate as well as the Terre di Talamo winery. His Castello di Bossi offerings have wowed us in the past – the compelling Girolamo Merlot comes to mind – and the same goes for Renieri too. Each vine in Renieri’s vineyards produces just enough fruit for one bottle of wine, maximizing flavor while maintaining the long-term health of the vineyard.
