Region Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino
Brand Renieri
Alcohol/vol 14.5%
Earthy aromas of bark, sand, truffles, graphite, rust, terracotta and sandalwood. Fruitier orange zest and lemon. Ripe, incense and with dense forest of aromas. Rich to the center palate, the fruit is vivacious and elegant. Robust and generous tannins. The finish is long, the after effects of the acidity unworldly.

A concentrated red, with intense flavors of black cherry, plum, violet, stony mineral and wild herbs. Ample flesh covers the dense matrix of tannins, but this retains plenty of structure and should develop well. Offers a lingering, salty aftertaste. Best from 2023 through 2040. 4,000 cases made, 730 cases imported.

The Renieri 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is dark and intense in its aromatics, displaying a mix of earthy mineral and soil tones, offset by crushed black cherry, savory herbs, leather, and spice. On the palate, soft, fleshy textures usher in ripe cherry fruits, offset by a mix of brisk acids and saturating minerals, as hints of exotic spice buzz upon the senses, leaving a coating of fine tannin in their wake. The finish is long and structured, flexing its hulky tannins, as only a hint of dried black cherry, minerals, and spice linger. The 2015 Renieri needs time and lots of it, but I believe its primary fruit and acids will one day tame the massive structure that is currently dominating the wine's personality.
