Brunello Di Montalcino Col di Lamo, Tuscany, Italy, 2015  

Grape: 100% Sangiovese Grosso sourced from 8ha of organic vineyards around Montalcino, wild yeast fermentation, aged for 2 years in oak. This wine has the potential to age for many decades gaining considerably in complex herbal notes, leather and tobacco.

The property, Col di Lamo, now owned by Giovanna Neri, is located at the northeast corner of the appellation, in an area that has performed nicely in some of the warmer vintages of the past years, thanks to the cooler microclimate found here. Farming is organic. Giovanna decided not to release her Brunello in 2014, but this pretty release from 2015 brings her portfolio nicely up to date.

Colour: red colour of medium intensity, with purple reflections.

Perfume: harmonious, with a sophisticated note of prune and blackberry and a strong wood aroma.

Flavour: the taste results in a rich and balanced wine, distinguished by its aftertaste with a note of mixed berries and a delicate nuance of wood. 

"This offers aromas of dark-skinned berry, tilled soil and a whiff of new leather. The savory, balanced palate delivers dried black cherry, star anise and tobacco alongside firm, youthfully austere tannins. Drink after 2023." 90/100 points, Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast, January 2020

"The Col di Lamo 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is a standout wine that offers a great balance of dark fruit and savory spice. It is fruit-forward, but it hits all the classic Brunello selling points. It shows emphasis on the dark side of the wine (with black cherry, black currant and plum) that is very much in line with this vintage. You might get a hint of ripeness too, with some blackberry preserves and cherry confit, but despite that more overt softness, the wine fully shows the elegance of the vintage. It's a great effort for organic farming." 93/100 points, Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, October 2020

Pair with roasted wild boar, venison with blueberry preserve, turkey stuffed with prunes and truffles, rich & creamy lamb risotto, mature Parmigiano Reggiano, or even with blueberry/blackberry based pastries.
