A whiff of crushed cherries and wild herbs lift the glass without a single swirl in Donatella Cinelli Colombini's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino. Looking deeper, I find raspberry, leather, notes of forest floor and wilted roses. On the palate, velvety textures sweep across the senses, displaying fleshy black cherries, dipped in sweet spice with hints of mint and slow-mounting tannins. The finish is medium in length, with dark fruits that slowly fade, leaving hints of savory herbs and a coating of fine tannin. The 2015 is a bit one-dimensional on the palate, but it is quite intriguing in its aromatics. It should be an interesting wine to follow over the coming years.
