The Collosorbo 2015 Brunello di Montalcino immediately makes its warm-vintage DNA clear and present. I tasted this wine right after the 2018 Rosso di Montalcino from the same producer, and the fruit profile of the two wines is completely different, thus illustrating the exuberant character of the 2015 vintage against the more reserved nature of 2018. This wine is plump and soft with robust notes of candied cherry, purple plum and tangy spice. The tannins are soft and velvety, and the role of the acidity is somewhat downplayed. The wine could use a touch more freshness. However, this Brunello ultimately comes across as an immediate and approachable expression to drink in the near and medium term. Some 60,000 bottles were made.

Reductive at first, but that soon blows off and will fade with time. What’s left is very transparent red-plum and red-cherry aromas. Hints of rhubarb and hibiscus. Tightly strung tannins suspend blood-orange and peach flavors in a hammock of gently weaving acidity. Drink from 2022.

93 pts Vinous

Dusty black cherries, cinnamon, sage, dried florals and savory spice lift effortlessly from the glass, forming a bouquet that keeps me coming back again and again. The palate is laced with silky textures, along with pure ripe cherry and plum, mineral underpinnings and subtle spice. Brisk acids and fine tannins mingle, presenting a wonderfully balanced experience. The finish is long and savory, with dried cherries and minerals resonating over a coating of refined tannins punctuated by lingering spice.

93 pts Wine Spectator

Rich, boasting fleshy black cherry, plum, earth and graphite aromas and flavors. Chunky tannins provide support as this persists through the lingering finish. Fine balance. Best from 2023 through 2042. 5,000 cases made, 1,300 cases imported.
