Collina dei Lecci's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino doesn't show that much fruit, focusing instead on evolved aromas of spice, potting soil and dried cherry or prune. The fruit feels tightened and dehydrated by the heat and sunshine of the 2015 summer season. This wine offers a medium finish with some fine texture on the dry tannins, which might work with a simple carbonara or even a veal saltimbocca. I would suggest a near or medium-term drinking window so as not to further jeopardize the intensity of those primary aromas.

Aromas of scorched earth, leather and tobacco lead the way. The chewy palate offers star anise and black plum jam alongside polished, ripe tannins. Drink through 2025.
