2015 Brunello, a Truly Historic Vintage

Wine Library
Mar 9 · 2 min read

Brunello di Montalcino is easily one of the most collectible red wines. Some will even say that it is the finest wine made in Italy. One thing we do know is that it is the best Sangiovese in the world, so when a vintage like this comes around, it is no brainer to stock up on your favorite producers.

We should start by talking about the weather. Late Winter and Spring had plenty of rain. This prepared the vines and the grapes for the dry and hot summer that was to come. A shot of rain to freshen the grapes right before harvest was the last touch to a perfect growing season. After reading multiple reports, it is obvious that the wines coming out of the 2015 season are going to be something special.

One of the first places we look to see how a vintage is doing is to look at some of the reviewers tasting reports. Here are what James Suckling and Monica Larner, two of the most respected Italian wine writers say about the vintage.

“The 2015 vintage is a historical year for Brunello di Montalcino that nobody should miss.”

-James Suckling in his 2015 Montalcino Report: “Brunello’s Fairy Tale Vintage”

“Fruit has never been more beautiful than it was in the picture-perfect 2015 vintage.”

-Monica Larner for Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

We have had a couple good vintages in the last decade, including the releases of 2010, 2012, and 2013 vintages. 2015 though is starting to shape up to beat all of them. Some reports have already released multiple 100 point reviews, and a ton of wines with 95 points or more. We will have plenty of Brunellos to choose from as 2015 looks to be one of the most collectible vintages of all time!
