Alcohol/vol 14.5%
Ruby red color with garnet hints. Very intense and complex nose with notes of ripe red fruits, such as cherry and black cheery, on a spicy and fresh background of sweet tobacco and aromatic herbs. On the palate the sip is smooth, well rounded, with a great structure and sweet integrated tannins. Long, mineral and fruity finish. Excellent with game, red meats and aged cheeses.

An earthy display of mineral-encased red fruits and wild herbs lifts from the glass, as the bouquet of the 2015 Salvioni Brunello di Montalcino evolves into a dark mix of ripe black cherry and dusty spices with overarching floral notes. On the palate, soft, enveloping ripe red fruits open up in an unexpectedly approachable and alluring display, with hints of sweet spice and inner florals. With more time, the flavors turn more to the savory spectrum, adding hints of dried herbs, with cascading minerals, all pushed forward by brisk acidity. The finish is long, as its staining red fruits are offset by zesty spices and acids, revealing just a hint of fine tannin beneath it all. This is an especially forward and easy-to-like expression of Salvioni, which I'm tempted to start drinking early, yet there's enough primary fruit and acids to carry it over the medium term in the cellar.

Fresh, featuring flavors of ripe cherry, strawberry, Mediterranean herbs and loam. Finishes with firm tannins, but feels harmonious, in a youthful way. Salty, minerally elements linger. Best from 2023 through 2040. 1,250 cases made, 125 cases imported.
