Brunello di Montalcino by Bartoli Giusti | 2015
Located 300m above sea level in the central hilly area of Montalcino, the wines of Bartoli Giusti are exceptionally pure, never fondled by new oak or excessive extraction. Sangiovese to-the-bone, this 2015 is vibrant on the nose and impressively delicate on the palate with wild berries, chestnut, Asian plum, and sweet stone. Broken-in, fine leathery tannins and tangy acidity stretch the wine into a superb long finish. Serve the wine between 60-64 (F) in a Burgundy stem alongside grilled skirt steak, thin-crust pizza, or veal cutlets.
