La Togata Tenuta Carlina Brunello di Montalcino 2015
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
|Brand||La Togata Tenuta Carlina|
The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino shows bright cherry and strawberry aromatics, with refreshing floral and mineral tones, yet in a restrained expression. This is already easy to appreciate. Soft textures giving way to fleshy ripe red fruits and a mix of savory and sweet herbs, with brisk acids, inner leather and floral tones. The finish is long, displaying staining dark fruits and sweet florals, as hints of fine tannin slowly taper off. The 2015 La Togata is a bit one-dimensional at this stage, showing more of the sunny fruit of the vintage.
Cooking spice, underbrush and leather aromas lead the way. The straightforward palate offers ripe black plum, star anise and clove alongside evolved tannins. Drink through 2024.
