"2015 will be remembered as one of the best vintages ever. I have been farming grapevines since I was born and never have I seen more perfect looking grapes.” Ofelio Fattoi, the patron and founder of Fattoi.
Robertparker.com (Monica Larner): 93 points: “The wines from Fattoi are distinguished by the intensity and the saturation of their appearance and aromas. The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (with only 5,000 bottles ready to go to market in March 2021) is a dark expression with perfumes of prune, plum, black cassis and blackberry. These aromas are presented with greater intensity in a warm and sunny vintage like 2015, but you also get some of the tannic highness and austerity of a wine that has been aged for so long. Winemaking is executed in a very traditional manner with bold and simple lines.” Drink: 2024 – 2040
Colour: The wine is visibly limpid, brilliant, an intense ruby red colour, with reflections of garnet.
Bouquet: Intense, persistent, full and ethereal, revealing the aromas of spices, forest floor, small red fruit and rich perfumed roses.
The taste: The wine is elegant, harmonious, with long aromatic persistence, balanced tannins and well rounded, with a dry and persistent finish.
Recommended food accompaniment: Red meats, game, mushroom and truffle dishes, aged cheeses such as Parmigiano Reggiano and Tuscan Pecorino. An excellent wine for meditation.
