93 Points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Le Macioche 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Cotarella opens to a classic interpretation of the vintage, with a pure and pristine quality of fruit that shines especially bright in this warm and sunny vintage. The best Brunellos capture that proverbial red fruit energy and crunchiness that is natural to Sangiovese. This carefully crafted wine easily achieves that level of purity. This vintage was bottled and crafted (but not harvested) by the Cotarella family, the current owners of Le Macioche since 2017, a boutique estate at the heart of Montalcino. Some 16,000 bottles were made." 10/20
92 Points, Ian D'Agata, Vinous: "Bright dark red. Faded flowers, sweet spices and red cherry aromas dominate the inviting nose. Enters clean, light on its feet and fresh, then chunkier in the middle with similar flavors to the aromas. The long finish features a strong balsamic note. A lovely wine." 4/20
93 Points, James Suckling: "Extremely floral with dried-tea, strawberry and cherry aromas. Full-bodied and chewy with a flavorful finish. Bitter orange at the end. Needs time to open. Better after 2022."
93 Points, Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator: "Packed with ripe cherry, strawberry, floral and mineral aromas and flavors, this red is charming and harmonious. Already approachable, with refined tannins that should be absorbed in the short term. Fine length. Best from 2022 through 2038." 04/20
