This wine was actually a Rosso di Montalcino last year but has happily become a full-fledged Brunello in this vintage. I'm told that this change is permanent. What I notice most about the Podere le Ripi 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Amore e Magia is the beauty and the richness of its color. The wine pours fourth with dark ruby intensity and purple accents of fuchsia. Fruit comes from a four-hectare site located at 200 to 250 meters above sea level near Castelnuovo dell'Abate on the eastern side of Montalcino, not far from the Lupi e Sirene vineyard that becomes another single-vineyard expression from Podere le Ripi. Following the brightness of the wine's appearance, you get a very incisive and direct bouquet with a sharp and vertical delivery that is pushed by a touch of volatility. This wine is very open and expressive, and it lays it all out for you to enjoy. Candied cherry and raspberry segue to Christmas spice and toasted nut. Some 15,000 bottles were made.
