BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO RISERVA 2015

The 2015 Cava d’Onice Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a friut-forward and sweetly spiced effort. Ripe black cherries, cinnamon, all spice and clove form a seductive bouquet with grounding hints of sage and leather. The textures are silky, offset by tart red berries with inner herbal and floral tones forming over a layer of grippy tannins. Youthfully dry and structured, this tapers off with chewy feel. This is balanced enough for mid-term cellaring, yeti t lacks gravitas.

BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO COLOMBAIO 2015

È composto e definito nella luminosità di un rosso vivace e croccante che mostra note di ciliegie, fiori bianchi e fiori rossi. Il mosto d’uva pressato domina la scena secondaria. La leggerezza si fonde con l’amabilità di un frutto perfettamente maturo e sapientemente lavorato. Corpo medio, tannini rotondi senza spigoli ed un finale leggiadro ricco di succosità e mordenza. Meglio dal 2021.

Il frutto integro sembra impossibile da scalfire e in modo solido e centrato esprime garanzia nel quadro sensoriale gioioso ricco di prugne nere, prugne rosse, foglie di mirto spezzate, chiodi di garofano e tiglio pressato. Corpo pieno, tannini levigati, perfettamente maturi che ricordano il velluto al palato ed un finale di indomita bellezza. Meglio dal 2021.

Energia pura in questo rosso scalpitante dalle note di fiori rossi, cedro, succo di pompelmo e lime. Bella la complessità sensoriale che si avvale della presenza dello zenzero fresco che dona intensità e precisione alla matrice. Che qualità il frutto nel centro palato che mostra tannini maturi e densi nella struttura ed un finale solido, concentrato e performante. Eccellenza made in Montalcino. Meglio dal 2022.

BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO RISERVA 2012

The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a darkly saturated and rich wine that boasts a thick and inky appearance. The bouquet is laced with dark fruit aromas of blackberry, prune, plum and cassis. These fruit tones are enhanced by the warmth of the 2012 growing season. In the mouth, this wine is lavish and opulent with soft, integrated tannins. Only 2,000 bottles were produced.

Slightly nutty and spicy oak on the nose, ripe mixed berries, some plums and dried herbs with tobacco and very slightly peppery notes. Firm, quite juicy, rather dark fruit with some sweetish spicy oak, some tobacco and some dried herbs, persistent on the palate, some depth, firm, fine tannins and some acid bite, still undeveloped, in the background mineral, becomes even finer with elegant, very good, rather cool, firm, juicy and spicy finish with paprika notes.

Il naso è caratterizzato da un aroma principale di frutti di bosco, molto pulito ed aperto. Al palato è un vino intenso, muscoloso, dove le note di frutti rossi sono accompagnati da un finale leggermente speziato. Acidità e tannino sono alquanto fini e morbidi. Strutturalmente è un vino molto corposo, dotato di grande energia, in grado di esprimersi anche nel tempo. Molto piacevole l’allungo finale.
