2015 is undoubtedly one of the most impressive vintage of its decade. It was marked by a strong thermal stress in August, which has particularly influenced acidity levels. The result is a wine “eat and drink all in one”, fleshy and soft, to be enjoyed perhaps in a shorter time horizon.

Wine SpectatorAromas of green tomato and tomato leaf segue into plum and cherry flavors in this concentrated red. Leather, iron and sanguine notes chime in as this cruises to a lingering aftertaste. Shows terrific intensity and balance. Best from 2022 through 2040. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 10,000 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastMade with organically cultivated Sangiovese, this fragrant elegant red opens with enticing scents of underbrush, sunbaked earth, wild berry, violet, crushed mint and a balsamic whiff of camphor. Smooth and savory, the linear palate has surprising vibrancy for such a hot vintage, delivering juicy Marasca cherry, strawberry compote, star anise and white pepper. Elegant fine-grained tannins lend polished support while a coffee note lingers on the close. Drink through 2025.

Wine AdvocateThe price difference between this 2015 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and the Vecchie Viti del Salco is noteworthy. This more affordable option delivers ripe fruit, dark cherry and blackcurrant folded within spice and delicate hints of campfire ash. It is a pure expression of Sangiovese, otherwise known locally as Prungnolo Gentile. The wine ages for 18 months in oak, of which 70% is botte grande and 30% is tonneaux. You'll catch a lot of plummy, ripe fruit flavors on the finish.
