2015 Lisini Brunello di Montalcino (Elsewhere $60)

SKU #1474511 96 points Decanter

Outer quote mark With vineyards between Sant'Angelo in Colle and Castelnuovo dell'Abate on the inner edge of the Sesta district, Lisini's vineyards are cleansed by constant breezes from the Tuscan Coast. Stony soils with an important underpinning of limestone as well as elevations over 300 metres help preserve freshness in their wines. The 2015 is beautifully fragrant, almost exotic in character. Plump red fruit and sweet summer herbs fill the mouth but rather than being heavy, this is poised and transparent. Ample powdery tannins are fine and lead to a tangy marine finish.

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino dark and rich, showing ripe black cherries and plum, with layers of haunting florals, exotic brown spice and smoky mineral tones. On the palate, a wave of polished textures wash across the senses, ushering in juicy black cherry with sweet herbal and floral undertones, with zesty spices and vibrant acidity adding a refreshing quality. The finish is long and remarkably fresh, an example of how the warmth of Sant’Angelo in Colle can be tempered by a deft hand, as fine tannins come forward, balanced by mouthwatering acidity and punctuated by residual pure red berry fruit. It’s a wine that’s very easy to love, with near term appeal and potential for the cellar. (EG) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A serious, brooding red, with ripe cherry and strawberry flavors offsetting the beefy tannins. Loam, iron and almond notes chime in. Balanced and long overall. (BS) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Subtle aromas of forest floor, woodland berry, wild herb and camphor aromas shape the nose. On the firmly structured palate, tightly knit noble tannins support dried cherry, pomegranate, licorice and tobacco. It’s still young so give it a few more years to fully develop. (KO) Inner quote mark (5/2020)

Lisini has always been one of my favorite Brunello producers and their 2015, is outstanding. This classic Sangiovese is rich in flavor with excellent concentration and length. There's a lot of stuffing here and as wonderful as the wine is today, it will only improve with a few years in the cellar. I highly recommend this one.

The nose is warm, inviting, filled with wild cherry backed up by a flow of umami like aromatics, a salty, savory plum that slowly flows from the glass. On the palate the wine is supple, plush, smooth with a luxurious feel to it, still lively on the palate it just seems like no edges. The flavors pick up with more of the savory; plumy character this time accented with hints of freshly cut leather and spice. The finish shows, very fine grain tannins that bring the wine with a twist of structure to a long and savory finish.
