RENIERI, BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO

 

TUSCANY, ITALY 2015

 

 

Collectors have been anxiously awaiting this year’s debut of the 2015 Brunello di Montalcino wines, and for good reason. 2015 has been heralded as a new benchmark vintage throughout Tuscany, whose ideal growing conditions led to wines of bold concentration balanced by lively acidity that will continue to evolve for many years to come. Earning a perfect 100 points as well as second place on James Suckling’s ‘Top 100 Wines of 2019,’ the 2015 Renieri Brunello di Montalcino is a profound, stunning example of what Sangiovese can achieve when managed with an expert hand. For one week, or until sold out, we’re offering our Concierge and Grand Reserve customers first dibs on this heralded release (and special pricing more than 20% off to boot). Also of note, six-bottle orders will come packaged in a wooden gift set, exclusively created for this vintage.

 

As the owner of multiple estates in Tuscany, Marco Bacci has mastered his craft. Renieri wines consistently garner high praise and top scores, and the 2015 Brunello is a resounding testament to Bacci’s winemaking expertise. Of course, the exemplary terroir deserves nearly as much credit: the Renieri estate is located on the southern side of Montalcino on slopes that face Monte Amiata, a mountain with one of the highest peaks in southern Tuscany. The vineyards are located at an impressive elevation of around 1,300 feet, and are planted primarily to Sangiovese: the source of Renieri’s acclaimed Brunello di Montalcino. 

 

According to Bacci, 2015 was “no doubt one of the best of the last 30 years” and the flagship Brunello tells the tale with unmistakable clarity. The wine is intense ruby in color and boasts seamlessly integrated flavors of dark cherry, orange zest, and truffle, with a nearly infinite finish—the incredibly rich texture is held by firm tannins and bright acidity that altogether suggest a very long life ahead. Renieri has long been one of our favorite Italian producers, and we’re proud to offer this iconic 100-point flagship to our customers today. Don’t miss your opportunity to secure your bottles before the wine arrives in store and prices go up!
