Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2015
99 pts. James Suckling:
"Wonderful aromas of roses and sliced plums with wet earth and truffles. Then turns to raspberries and blackberries. Cherries, too. Full and firm with super integrated tannins that melt into the wine. It flows from the center palate in a beautiful sheet of fruit and tannins. Extremely long and coated with great finesse. Goes on for minutes. Better in 2022, but already a joy to taste."
96 pts. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The Valdicava 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is a dark and sultry wine with a beautiful presentation of aromas. This full-bodied Sangiovese opens to aromas of plumy dark fruit, black cherry, cured tobacco, cola and balsam spice. There are earthy or savory tones as well, with some fragrant crushed flower or wild rose that come straight out of the classic Sangiovese playlist. Generally speaking, this Brunello veers toward black fruit aromas (as opposed to red fruits), and its smooth texture and elegant tannins are well suited to a classic Tuscan dish of pappardelle con sugo di lepre (wild rabbit) or another game sauce. Production is 37,000 bottles." - Monica Larner, 10/2020
2015 is considered among the best, "5 star vintages" in Tuscany. And Valdicava is considered one of the most well-respected wineries in Tuscany! They consistently produce amazing Brunellos with a comparatively bolder, earthier, more full-bodied flavor all their own. The vineyards are situated on the north side of Montalcino and the wine spends more time in French Oak than most other Brunellos. If you are an Italian wine fan, you MUST add this one to your collection!
