Intense ruby red, garnet tends with aging. Aromas are characteristic and intense. Dry, warm, slightly tannic, robust and harmonious. A wine with a high alcohol content and long aging, it is marketed in the fifth year after the harvest, after spending three and a half years in large oak barrels followed by at least 4 months of aging in bottle. At the table it goes very well with game and meat. Excellent with aged cheeses, alone as a meditation wine.

Professional Review

James Suckling: 94 Points

Aromas of dried cherries, smoke, dark leather and violets with some dried leaves follow through to a full body with firm, fine tannins that are slightly chewy, yet it shows length and focus. Needs time to open on the finish. Try after 2023.

Vinous: 92 Points

Deep red with a garnet rim. Perfumed, showy nose of violet, cherry cola and pungent spices. Then juicy and penetrating, with firm, harmonious acidity giving the sweet red cherry and mint flavors good clarity and cut. Finishes with smooth tannins, excellent persistence and impeccable balance. This is a very good showing; well done.

Robert Parker: 90 Points

The La Lecciaia 2015 Brunello di Montalcino offers loads of Sangiovese brightness with tart cherry, raspberry and dried blueberry. Those forest berry notes are followed by soft earthy tones, along with tobacco and spice, making it a pleasant pairing with a Tuscan pasta dish of wild boar or rabbit, perhaps with some herbs from your own garden. This affordable Brunello avoids the trappings of a warm vintage. Instead, it presents a very polished and linear personality that underlines its accessibility and easygoing elegance.
