2015 Collemattoni Brunello di Montalcino - 95 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"Good full red. Perfumed aromas of red cherry, kirsch, mocha and herbs on the inviting nose. Despite its size, this is graceful and impeccably built, with very precise flavors of red plum, blueberry, milk chocolate and minerals that expand and broaden on the long, seductive finish. Outstanding Brunello that offers both size and refinement. In my opinion, Collemattoni is a very underrated, off the radar Brunello estate but its wines deserve to be better known. - Ian D’Agata."

wine spectator 93 pts"This is round, evoking plum and blackberry flavors, with vibrant acidity lending focus. Iron and tobacco elements join in as the finish builds, revealing dense, lively tannins. Best from 2023 through 2040. 2,300 cases made, 500 cases imported. — BS"

vinous logo"Bright, deep red. Red cherry, sweet spices and smoky oak on the enticing nose. Strong soil tones complement musky spice, sweet pipe tobacco, and red fruit flavors. Finishes creamy, tactile and long, with polished tannins. Made from Sangiovese grown in vineyards located in all four of the major quadrants of the Montalcino production zone, which allowed owner Adon Bucci to make a highly balanced wine.- Ian D'Agata"

vinous logo"Good full ruby-red. Inviting aromas of red cherry pie, black cherry, sweet spices, mocha and dried herbs. Densely packed and silky, displaying superb intensity to the high-pitched red cherry and berry flavors. This sexy, velvety wine offers terrific lift and sappiness, but has a very firm spine of noble tannins and lively acids that leaves a lingering impression of a classic Brunello. Lush and very long, this beauty is already irresistible now. - Ian D'Agata"

wine and spirits logo 250"The Bucci family makes wine from 27 acres of vines in Montalcino’s southern sector. Their 2013 Brunello offers flavors of red cherry and leafy herbs framed by plush, velvety tannins. Mineral tones weave through the wine, drawing the flavors together. Its open-knit structure offers plenty of immediate appeal.”

wine spectator 96 pts"This is very Burgundian in style, with effusive cherry, strawberry and floral aromas and flavors riding a supple texture until the characteristic Sangiovese tannins emerge on the finish. Elegant, complex and long overall. Best from 2021 through 2035. 2,000 cases made. –BS"

vinous logo"Bright red with ruby tinges. Musky red raspberry, mocha and violet on the nose. At once big and restrained, dense and rich, showcasing Collemattoni’s typical thick, strapping mouthfeel but also more lift and refinement than usual. Round and fairly large-scaled but with plenty of verve that will repay extended cellaring. Really classic Brunello. - Ian D'Agata"

wine enthusiast 90 pts"This opens with aromas that suggest leafy underbrush, scorched earth, star anise, steeped plum and a whiff game. The chewy palate offers up blackberry jam, fleshy black cherry, vanilla, licorice and a hint of a confectionary note alongside tightly packed, ripe tannins. Wait until 2019, then drink up. –Kerin O'Keefe"
