Vintage Report from James Suckling:
"The 2015 vintage is a historical year for Brunello and nobody should miss it. The wines show impressive precision of vivid fruit, fine tannins, and freshness in acidity despite their ripeness and richness which makes them some of the most exciting in years. The growing season in 2015 was impressive. The winter and spring had plenty of rain to make up for the intense sun and heat during the summer. There was some rain in September before the harvest to freshen the vineyards. And as noted before, good vineyard management compensated for the hot weather during the growing season, and sorting out dried grapes at harvest was extremely important for making exceptional wines."
The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is firmly rooted in the earth, as black cherry and tea leaves give way to moist soil tones, smoky minerals, and a hint of animal musk. On the palate, fleshy textures usher in polished, ripe black fruits and offsetting savory herbs, with minerals and round tannins slowly saturating the senses. The finish is long and zesty, with citrus-infused tannins and minerals tugging at the cheeks, as dried red fruits and undeniably pretty floral tones slowly fade. This is wonderfully balanced and geared up for mid-term evolution in the cellar. Frankly, I think of it like a swiss army knife of Brunello, pleasing at first pour, but with the stuffing to go ten to fifteen years. Well done. -94 Vinous Media
Quite understated for a 2015 Brunello, this shows heather, rose petals, and tulips. Hints of bark, red licorice, and cedar. Medium-to full-bodied with silky, sleek tannins and lots of mouthwatering acidity drive. Refined and elegant. Drink from 2021. ~94 James Suckling
There’s something ethereal in the nose with flowers, cherries, strawberries, and shitake mushrooms. Full body. This grows on the palate with super tannin and fruit structure. So much berry flavor and round, caressing tannins that fill your mouth. Tight at the end. This needs four to five years to show its true greatness. Try after 2023. ~98 James Suckling
Rich and complex, this exudes ripe cherry, plum, floral, leather, iron, and earth aromas and flavors. The refined tannins are beautifully integrated, and this feels almost approachable, yet there’s still a light grip on the finish, so decant now or age a few more years. Better than previously reviewed. Best from 2024 through 2043. 5,000 cases made, 2,000 cases imported. ~94 Wine Spectator
This is a plusher style of Brunello 2015 with dried cloves, cinnamon, mocha, coffee beans, and dark cherries. Hints of jam. Full-bodied, chewy, and very spicy; the ripe-cassis flavors wash the palate out with unrelenting decadence. Drink from 2026. ~94 James Suckling
Good full red. Perfumed aromas of red cherry, kirsch, mocha, and herbs on the inviting nose. Despite its size, this is graceful and impeccably built, with very precise flavors of red plum, blueberry, milk chocolate, and minerals that expand and broaden on the long, seductive finish. Outstanding Brunello that offers both size and refinement. In my opinion, Collemattoni is a very underrated, off-the-radar Brunello estate but its wines deserve to be better known. ~95 Vinous Media
This is round, evoking plum and blackberry flavors, with vibrant acidity lending focus. Iron and tobacco elements join in as the finish builds, revealing dense, lively tannins. Best from 2023 through 2040. 2,300 cases made, 500 cases imported ~93 Wine Spectator
