Brunello di Montalcino Filo di Seta Castello Romitorio 2015 (1.5L)
96 points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate: "We didn't see this wine in 2014, so it's nice to have it back. The Castello Romitorio 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Filo di Seta is born in a unique vineyard site that is characterized by a greater presence of schist or slate-like shards in the soils. These conditions contribute to the sharp and focused aromas you get here. Pencil shaving and granite rock come to mind. However, the wine is equally expressive when it comes to its ample fruit and floral profile, and there's enough spice and soft leather or tobacco to hold it all neatly together in one happy package. It ages in oak for 30 months. This wine marks an ideal marriage between vintage and soil. The wine was released in January 2020, and 7,472 bottles were made." 01/20
95 Points, Ian D'Agata, Vinous: "Deep red. Perfumed aromas of violet, redcurrant and red cherries are complicated by violet and minerals. Then juicy and fresh, with well-integrated acidity nicely lifting and extending the red fruit and herbal flavors on the long, vibrant finish. Deep, complex Brunello that is quite polished and age-worthy." 4/20
96 points, James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com: "Extremely perfumed and pure on the nose with bright and vivid, crushed cherry and berry character. Full body. Tight and poised with rich yet polished tannins and an ever so long finish. Needs at least three or four years to come together. Better after 2021." 11/19
98 Points, Raffaele Vecchione: "Deep and exuberant in the glass, this Brunello reveals the delicate power in the notes of red plums, dehydrated cherries, thyme and rosemary. The background gives a pleasant freshness with the memory of eucalyptus leaves and green tea. Medium-full body, defined tannins, silky in the form of excellent quality thanks to the work done in the vineyard and a final full expression of Italian classicism where precision perfectly marries with Mediterranean identity and character. Better since 2022." 03/20.
