Salvioni Brunello di Montalcino La Cerbaiola 2015
96+ points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, October 2020
After skipping over the 2014 vintage, Salvioni comes out swinging with the 2015 Brunello di Montalcino La Cerbaiola. This is a classic Brunello, with one foot firmly planted in a sense of place and the other in varietal purity. You really can't ask for more in a world-class Brunello such as this, hailing from a highly ranked vintage. Thanks to the sunny and warm growing season, the fiber and texture of this wine is a little looser and thicker compared to the cooler 2013 vintage. This beautiful wine, by contrast, delivers a knockout blow of saturated color loaded with dark cherry and blackberry aromas, all backed by spice, potting soil, crushed rocks, iron ore, ash, violets and blood orange. There is a subtle point of softness or sweetness on the finish that is a signature of this vintage. This champion of a release weighed in at 15,355 bottles.
Vineyard renewal is underway at the La Cerbaiola estate. The Salvioni family has planted a new plot of vines that will enter production within three years' time. It will replace older vines. Salvioni harvests fruit from southeast-facing vines at 440 meters above sea level. The soils include galestro and little pockets of thicker clay.
