If you haven't had a chance to stock up on 2015 Brunelli, here is your last chance. While much of the vintage has already been sopped up by the market, we scored the last gasp from Lazzeretti via our unique direct import model.
Lazzeretti is a relative new-comer in Brunello, with production starting in 2001. Marco and Julia are brother and sister who personally oversee the production and business. They make around 2,000 cases per year, as well as a small amount of Rosso, Riserva, Grappa, and extra virgin olive oil.
Our own tasting notes mirror what the critics have already written below.
This is the highest-rated and lowest priced 2015 Brunello we've offered.
This is a very, very intense Brunello with explosive spices, cedar, leather, tar and a plethora of dried plums and berries. The full-bodied palate is incredibly dense and bold, swathed in vast, comprehensive tannins and layer upon layer of plums and cherries. There’s marvelous length and decadence to the finish, where the dried-spice character goes on and on. Stunning richness. Drink from 2025. ~96 James Suckling Sep 2019
An incredible wine from Lazzeretti, this Brunello is lively and intense with exuberant character, showing notes of hibiscus flowers and lavender along with notes reminiscent of blueberries and star anise. It possesses incredible energy with a wonderful fresh character through its full-bodied texture. It displays outstanding overall quality and a pure territorial expression which is wrapped up in velvety tannins and an incandescent finish. Balanced and harmonious, this may be the finest wine yet from Lazzeretti, even surpassing the excellent 2010. ~96 International Wine Report
A monolithic red, with sweetness to the black cherry, black currant, and raspberry fruit. Earth and iron notes anchor the bottom end, while a tobacco accent frames the dense tannins. Offers a long finish, showing solid grip. Best from 2023 through 2042. 1,500 cases made, 700 cases imported. ~93 Wine Spectator
