So how did we get our hands on bottles of one of the most talked about wines of this phenomenal vintage? Friends! Sometimes it takes long time relationships to pull off getting the rarest of wines and the largest allocation in the country.

Here’s to the most densest, most voluminous ever from this remarkable Estate!

About the wine

Steeped in heritage and tradition, this small, family owned, estate from the south of Montalcino produces some of the most incredible Brunellos we have tried! The average age of these vines is 35 years, giving the wine this depth of character. Structured notes of ripe fruit and hints of spices lure us in.

The 24 months in oak lets the wine develop this velvety texture, followed by an additional 12 month help keeps the fruit notes bright and fresh. This Brunello is a perfect balance of masculine and feminine. We are loving how it drinks now but am certainly looking forward to how it will develop after a few years in the cellar. Buy two just to be safe!

"The complexity of the cedar and oak smell makes this BdM special and no doubt has to do with the passages of barriques used in the aging process by Fossacolle. After opening the fruit comes through. Clear violet hue ruby edges, intense cedar nose, with cigarbox, oak, and black cherry aromas present. Prominent black cherry but underlying blackberry flavours. Soft and ripe, yet racy and zesty. Full body, with a austere, lingering, and elegant finish. Smooth, with a round mouthfeel." Paul P.

"Mmmm. Love the leathery, dark chocolate and berry taste of this beautiful wine. Great with most meat dishes and yet it’s great all by itself too." Michael K.

Excellent ripeness of fruit here with glazed strawberries, blood oranges, red licorice and dried spices. Superb density and focus to the centre palate, which is layered, ornate, plush but balanced. The finish goes on and on with nutmeg, tar and saffron. Wonderful length and intensity. Drink from 2024.

The Fossacolle 2015 Brunello di Montalcino shows a prominent mineral note of crushed stone and talc powder. It becomes a fitting segue to more typical aromas of wild berry fruit and balsam herbs. There is some firmness or tannic bite on the close that suggests extra cellar aging is required. Even just a few years should be enough to shave it off. This wine is tightly coiled and inward-looking at this early stage in the game. The finish is structured and angular, but it just needs to open. Fruit comes from a 2.5-hectare vineyard with full southwest-facing exposures. Some 17,000 bottles will be released in February 2020.
