Martoccia 2015 Brunello di Montalcino

$ 79.99

Winemaker Notes

Bright ruby red, tending to garnet with aging. Bouquets of cherry, plum and spices. Full bodied , lively acidity with flavors of red fruits. Fresh and long aftertaste. Long aging potential wine.

An ideal match with grilled or stewed red meat and seasoned cheeses

Critical Acclaim

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Martoccia's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino brings forth some of the warmer characteristics of the vintage, thanks to its earthy and spicy aromas that lift gently from the bouquet. A second wave of plummy dark fruit and dried cherry is quick to follow. This wine would be a pleasant pairing with venison sausages now, but it's probably better to wait: This edition offers a good balance between fruit and oak, and although the tannins are tight, they should carry the wine forward over the next five years of aging.

JS 92
James Suckling

Rich and layered with ripe tannins and chocolate and walnut character. Full body and layers of fruit. Lots of fruit and structure.

WS 92
Wine Spectator

Black cherry, black currant, earth and forest floor aromas and flavors mark this brooding red. A dense swath of tannins joins the fray on the finish, leaving a pleasantly astringent feel.
