Brunello di Montalcino Il Colle 2015

R799.00

Region: Montalcino, Tuscany

Intense and brilliant ruby red colour with a slight garnet rim. Notes of strawberry, raspberry, currant, blueberry and blackberry are predominant to the nose, with hints of black cherry. The aroma is then followed by elegant floral notes, which blend with spice on the finish, thanks to the long ageing in wooden casks. Leather, cinnamon, pepper, tobacco and chocolate are noticeable at this stage. The palate is rich, warm, enveloping, tannic and harmonious, with long persistence. A well-balanced suit of tannins is attributable to the fine-grained wood in which the ageing took place, on top of an already excellent vintage. Mature in a cool 16 – 18degC cellar until 2025 – 2035.

Food pairing: A serious wine for dishes such as roast suckling lamb with rosemary gravy; venetian calves’ liver & onions.
