2015 Lazzeretti Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG

Wine Spectator explains it best: "No wine in Italy matches Tuscany's Brunello di Montalcino when it comes to class and age-ability." The 97 point 2015 Lazzeretti Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG is a stellar bottle to test that claim. WineCritics.com says it’s a “masterpiece to keep in the cellar.

All the stars aligned for this wine. The grapes come from 40-year-old vines. The Lazzaretti family is one of the top Brunello producers. The 97 point vintage delivered “rich Brunellos, dense with tannins,” according to Wine Spectator.
