The Fattoi 2015 Brunello di Montalcino shows rich and expressive character in this classic vintage. The bouquet offers dark red and purple fruit flavors, all backed by a sanguine accent of rusty nail or beet root that gives the wine a salty or mineral-driven finish. Fruit is sourced from a seven-hectare plot at 330 meters above sea level with tufo clay and Galestro rock. Those schist elements in the soil may account for that sanguine-mineral character you get here. Fermentation is executed in stainless steel, and the wine goes into 45-hectoliter French and Slavonian oak for three years. That rather traditional approach to winemaking gives the wine sharp and focused contours with plenty of rich fruit expression at its core. - Monica Larner
