  • Score: 93 Vintage 2017 Wine Enthusiast Full bodied, smooth and savory, this youthful fragrant red opens with inviting aromas of black-skinned berry, rose, new leather and a whiff of camphor. The juicy delicious palate doles out fleshy Marasca cherry, raspberry compote and baking spice while taut polished tannins provide the framework. Drink 2020–2023.

  • Score: 100 Vintage 2016 Wine Enthusiast Absolutely stunning, this gorgeous red has enticing aromas of wild rose, forest berries, new leather and camphor. Full-bodied and delicious, the smooth, structured palate is all about flavor, focus and finesse, doling out succulent black cherry, crushed raspberry, star anise and white pepper notes framed in tightly knit, refined tannins. Bright acidity keeps it impeccably balanced. Beautiful now and will continue to age and develop even more complexity for years to come. Drink 2024–2041. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 97 Vintage 2015 Wine Enthusiast Earthy aromas of truffle, underbrush, rose and new leather shape the nose along with scents of dark-skinned berry and eucalyptus. Full bodied and youthfully tense, the savory palate delivers crushed black cherry, crushed raspberry, licorice and tobacco set against tightly knit, refined tannins and fresh acidity. Drink 2023–2035. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 96 Vintage 2015 Vinous Media An earthy display of mineral-encased red fruits and wild herbs lifts from the glass, as the bouquet of the 2015 Salvioni Brunello di Montalcino evolves into a dark mix of ripe black cherry and dusty spices with overarching floral notes. On the palate, soft, enveloping ripe red fruits open up in an unexpectedly approachable and alluring display, with hints of sweet spice and inner florals. With more time, the flavors turn more to the savory spectrum, adding hints of dried herbs, with cascading minerals, all pushed forward by brisk acidity. The finish is long, as its staining red fruits are offset by zesty spices and acids, revealing just a hint of fine tannin beneath it all. This is an especially forward and easy-to-like expression of Salvioni, which I’m tempted to start drinking early, yet there’s enough primary fruit and acids to carry it over the medium term in the cellar.

  • Score: 96 Vintage 2015 Vinous Media Medium-deep red. Delightfully pure, primary aromas of raspberry, violet, licorice, flint and minerals. At once super concentrated, sappy and dense with a steely profile to the outstandingly intense raspberry, blackberry and violet flavors. Polished tannins and a firm mineral spine on the long finish.

  • Score: 93 Vintage 2015 Wine Spectator Fresh, featuring flavors of ripe cherry, strawberry, Mediterranean herbs and loam. Finishes with firm tannins, but feels harmonious, in a youthful way. Salty, minerally elements linger. Best from 2023 through 2040. 1,250 cases made, 125 cases imported. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
