This grows on the palate with super tannin and fruit structure. So much berry flavor and round, caressing tannins that fill your mouth. Tight at the end. This needs four to five years to show its true greatness. Try after 2023.

Full in weight but refined, the accessible palate offers dried cherry, black tea, star anise and a dollop of vanilla alongside polished tannins before a minty finish. Reflecting the hot vintage, it's already approachable but still offers good midterm aging potential. Drink 2021–2027. - KERIN O’KEEFE

On the palate, silky textures usher in a ripe set of red fruits, carried well by juicy acids, and giving way to sweet spice and pretty inner floral notes. The finish is long yet maintains the wine’s fresh and vibrant persona, as hints of fine tannin mingle with wild berries and a pinch of residual acids, making the mouth water. The 2015 may not be a Brunello for the ages, but it sure is very easy to like today. It’s a beautiful wine. -- Eric Guido

Coming back to the Pertimali - Livio Sassetti 2015 Brunello di Montalcino six months later, I discover a wine that is drier (as opposed to jammy or overtly overripe) but quite intact and balanced overall. The tannins are a bit dusty and so is the fruit, with powered cherry and raspberry flavors. There are tart fruit flavors that give this bottle a better sense of lift and energy, especially compared to that first sample. - Monica Larner
