Brunello di Montalcino Castello Romitorio 2015 (5L)
95 points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate: "The Castello Romitorio 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is a suave and supple expression that shows a slightly more opulent texture compared to many of its peers. The Castello Romitorio vineyards tend to be cool, both in terms of exposure and soils, and the estate shows its best results in a warm and sunny vintage exactly like 2015. You taste the natural richness and exuberance of the fruit, with variety-specific elements of wild cherry, blue flowers and soft earth. The house style prizes more width and latitude in terms of mouthfeel. That attractive medium to full-bodied style is achieved thanks to 24 months of oak aging. At the end of the day, the quality of the fruit is really what shines brightest here. Some 60,569 bottles were made, and the wine was released to the market in January 2020." 01/20
94 Points, Ian D'Agata, Vinous: "Good full red. Tobacco, mint and earth notes complement red cherry aromas and flavors. Very fresh and precise, with a steely element to its red fruit and herbal flavors that linger nicely on the clean, juicy and floral finish. Blessed with a relatively high but harmonious acid mouthfeel and impeccable balance, this will likely age better than many other 2015 Brunellos." 4/20
95 points, James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com: "A dense and rich Brunello with lots of ripe fruit, spices and hints of new wood. Full-bodied, chewy and rich. A muscular wine that needs time to come together. Better after 2022." 11/19
97 Points, Raffaele Vecchione: "Wow! A devastating sensory power is manifested in this young Brunello who elegantly dispenses character and authenticity in the notes of black plums, chinotto, bergamot and orange blossom. The blood background blends well with the notes of green tea and withered helichrysum. Full body, silky tannins at the entrance to the palate and a solid and compact finish that rushes into a vertical finish that ignites from the palate center onwards. Better since 2022." 04/20.
