2015 SOLARIA PATRIZIA CENCIONI BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO
Winemaker Patrizia Cencioni knows the great wines of Montalcino are born in the vineyard and developed in the cellar. Her vines are strategically located on a high plateau, and in 2015, mother nature delivered a textbook growing season, which James Suckling alerted readers, “nobody should miss.” The vintage brought remarkable power, dynamic complexity, and a purity of fruit that’s spectacular, and Patrizia’s 2015 showcases all of it.
Patrizia Cencioni inherited the estate at age 20 when her father passed away, and she’s made vast improvements to the quality of wines produced there. She is meticulous with her grape selection, and it’s evident in the purity of her fruit.
Solaria’s Vineyards were planted in 1989 at 300 meters above sea level on a natural plateau composed of coarse tuff and clay soils, contributing to the wine’s incredible depth. Patrizia aged this wine for 30 months in cask, and after a couple of years in the bottle, the flavors are beautifully integrated, long and distinctive.
