The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino from Collemattoni impresses with an expression of purity, showing wild strawberries with hints of green stems and nuances of sweet spice. It’s a soft and enveloping effort with a core of bright, juicy acids, which bring its red and black berry fruits to life. While youthfully dry and structured, this never loses momentum, tapering off to pretty inner florals. Only a few years of cellaring should bring this fully into focus. It’s a pleasure to taste.
