Fanti Brunello di Montalcino, 2015


Look what Santa left under the tree.  Wow.  Very naughty but obviously someone’s been very nice.

This is ludicrously out of our bandwidth.  This is like that visit to a two star Michelin restaurant in Hong Kong where they had a Burgundy wine flight.  This is just heaven.  Wine heaven.  And I am extremely fortunate to have sampled a sample.

If there is somewhere for the 2015 to go, I guess it would be on Elon Musk’s rocket to Mars, because here on earth it is ready, ready now, and on the palate like drinking velvet.  Smooth to the nth, accents of an early spring garden with dewy violets and buried notes of cedar shavings.  Gobs of palate drenching dark fruit, but never heavy, as light on the tongue as the nose.  Just spectacular, it really needs no explanation.  And of course way, way out of our price range.

Price: Gifted, and not in stock in BC (to my knowledge) but in Ontario $70, and if you can afford to drop that sort of coin on a bottle of red then buy it by the caseload.

Market Liquidity: A bottle of earthly delights.
