Pian dell'Orino Rosso di Montalcino 2015, Tuscany, Italy (750ml)
|| Grapes:||100% Sangiovese
|| Type:||Dry Red|
|| Ratings:||RP 92
| I tasted the 2015 and 2016 vintages of this wine side by side and am therefore in a position to compare the two in real time. The 2015 Rosso di Montalcino shows more thickness, more fiber, more fruity succulence and spice. Of course, this is absolutely characteristic of this warm and sunny vintage. This was a textbook growing season, with rain coming at the right time and ripening proceeding on schedule. This Rosso offers pretty cherry fruit and blackberry. You get some of that crunchiness that I often associate with Sangiovese. Drink 2019 - 2026 (ML, Wine Advocate)
