The Brunello di Montalcino is produced only with grapes coming from the oldest vineyards. Its color is intense ruby and the aromas are of mature fruits, sustained in the palate by great complexity. The tannins are noteworthy, silky and oily, persistent. A wine of optimal equilibrium, elegance and complexity, it will increase its bouquet after a moderate time in bottle. These are great with well structured and composite dishes such as red meats, game maybe accompanied by mushrooms and truffles. A good match could be with seasoned cheeses too.

Fossacolle's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is dark yet extroverted, showing notes of crushed plum, ripe strawberry, dusty cedar, a citrus spritz, and refreshing red florals. Strawberry, with hints of spice, inner cedar and leather tones all open up on the palate. The 2015 finishes with medium-length and zesty, tart wild berries with a touch of spice.
