  • 94 POINTS - VINOUS: The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino dark and rich, showing ripe black cherries and plum, with layers of haunting florals, exotic brown spice and smoky mineral tones. On the palate, a wave of polished textures wash across the senses, ushering in juicy black cherry with sweet herbal and floral undertones, with zesty spices and vibrant acidity adding a refreshing quality. The finish is long and remarkably fresh, an example of how the warmth of Sant’Angelo in Colle can be tempered by a deft hand, as fine tannins come forward, balanced by mouthwatering acidity and punctuated by residual pure red berry fruit. It’s a wine that’s very easy to love, with near term appeal and potential for the cellar. -Eric Guido

  • 94 POINTS - WINE ADVOCATE: The Lisini 2015 Brunello di Montalcino shows muscle and brawn, filling out its full-bodied frame with plenty of dark fruit, spice, tar and smoke. If you like a more concentrated style of Sangiovese, this is your wine. It offers seamless harmony and sun-drenched intensity that all work very nicely in this classic and warm vintage. You can wait, or drink it in the near-term with a rack of lamb. - Monica Larner

  • MISSION NOTES: Lisini is one of the reference points for Montalcino winemaking: classic, no-frills winemaking with a cult following that has lasted for decades. There’s nothing new world or modern about these wines, but at the same time they’re incredibly pretty and well-balanced. The 2015 is glorious. There’s no mistaking the dark cherry note, but it’s layered with all sorts of other delicate aromas. There’s a nice tannic grip on the palate, but there’s still plenty of grace here.
