Ripe al Convento Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2015
Ripe al Convento 2015 boasts a beautifully bright and intense ruby-red colour with delicate garnet hues on the edge. Fruity aromas, including blueberry, cherry and macerated black cherry, pervade the nose first. However, the tertiary notes provided by the lengthy ageing are what stand out most here. These are perfectly balanced, with not a single one overpowering the others. Cinnamon, tobacco, tea leaf, roasted coffee bean and, lastly, subtle hints of leather are the main descriptors. Elegant spices, such as white pepper, cloves and cinnamon, round off the sensory journey. The velvety, silky-smooth tannins are mature and compact, gently caress the palate and supplement the wine perfectly. They provide wonderful balance with the acidity and alcohol. The finish is very long and persistent, further demonstrating the greatness of this vintage.
