Fossacolle - Brunello di Montalcino 2015

On the palate the full body is gratifying and persistent, outstanding minerality. Remarkable tannins, soft and creamy in texture, confer concentration and great aging potential to this wine.

Press Quote "The Fossacolle 2015 Brunello di Montalcino shows a prominent mineral note of crushed stone and talc powder. It becomes a fitting segue to more typical aromas of wild berry fruit and balsam herbs. There is some firmness or tannic bite on the close that suggests extra cellar aging is required. Even just a few years should be enough to shave it off. This wine is tightly coiled and inward-looking at this early stage in the game. The finish is structured and angular, but it just needs to open. Fruit comes from a 2.5-hectare vineyard with full southwest-facing exposures. Some 17,000 bottles will be released in February 2020".
