The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino shows dusty ripe cherries and plum laced with red floral perfumes, as notes of brown spice and hints of undergrowth develop in the glass. Creamy textures meld into bright cherry and strawberry, as the 2015 Buon Tempo takes a turn to the savory side with notes of rosemary, minerals, and leather tones. The finish is long, displaying staining red fruits yet still fresh, as a mix of residual acids and minerals cleanse the senses, leaving just a hint of fine tannin that provides an attractive grippiness toward the close. This is a model of class and elegance from the ripe 2015 vintage.
