Tornesi Brunello 2015
Famous for being the DOCG with the longest aging requirement and for its prodigiously tannic, age-worthy Sangiovese, Brunello di Montalcino is a gem among Italy's fine wine regions. With both winemaking and prestige in the ascendancy, the perfect 2010 vintage could not have come at a better time to lift this esteemed region further.
The success of the 2015 vintage has been one of the worst kept secrets in the wine trade and anticipation of the releases has been building ever since the grapes were picked. The beautiful conditions produced first-rate Sangiovese, which in the hands of skilled winemakers has resulted in the finest examples in many years. 2015 really is something special.
