2015 Brunello di Montalcino, Col d´Orcia
I have tasted a fair amount of vintages from Col d´Orcia (see below) and the 2015 is by far the best regular vintage from this estate (not counting the Riserva Poggio Al Vento).
The nose is deep and seamless with notes of sweet/sour cherries, furniture polish, fresh rosemary, bakelite and a hint of chili. Very complex and fine.
The taste is tight and sandy with fine grained tannins and lovely notes of ripe black cherries, salt licorice, fine tobacco and Tuscan gravel. Very long. Classy. 6+ years. For 28 Euro this is one to back the truck up for. I will (and already have…). Third bottle drunk.
