2015 San Giorgio Ugolforte, Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, Italy (750ml)
"There’s wonderful polish and focus to the vibrant nose here, which frames sour cherries, raspberries, fruit tea and darker, earthier elements. Medium-to full-bodied and beautifully pure and inviting, this is a dialed-in Brunello with sweeping acidity and finely chiseled tannins. Drink from 2021." James Suckling, 94 pts
"This beefy red is less forthcoming than many of its peers, featuring a core of pure, fresh cherry flavors. Earth and leafy tobacco elements emerge as this unfolds on the lingering finish. Shows fine balance and energy overall. Best from 2024 through 2042." Wine Spectator, 94 pts
"While Tenuta San Giorgio is close to Poggio di Sotto and under the same ownership, the two offer distinct expressions. This sees 50% new barriques for the first year, before being transferred into large Slavonian oak casks for an additional two years. It is decidedly cedary and balsamic with rosemary, oregano and mint. Tannins are assertive and a tad rustic but there is enough tangy fruit padding out the core." Decanter, 91 pts
