This was a much deserved crowd favorite at our consumer event early this year. If your preference is a Brunello with power. The La Rasina will not disappoint.
Lots of berry and mushroom aromas with hints of earth and cigar box. Full-bodied, deep and structured with lots of fruit in the center palate, framed by tannins. A serious and beautiful wine.
The La Rasina 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is another textbook expression from the vintage. The wine offers the bold intensity, darkness and rich fruit fiber to proudly carry the Brunello banner. This is what wines from the appellation are all about. Both the fruit intensity and harmony are spot-on, and the wine offers a long, rich and very pleasurable finish. There's a lot of fruit fiber with tight tannins and acidity. These elements promise to loosen up and soften with extra time in the cellar. This is a lovely wine with dusty, earthy notes on the finish.
