About the Wine:
Cantine Bonacchi is a fledgling estate for Montalcino, where it has become a must-know property for Brunello lovers in recent years. A remarkable bottling from Bonacchi’s most prized vineyards in Montalcino, this has a concentration and focus that comes as much from its hillside terroir.

The 2015 Bonacchi Molino del Piano Brunello was crafted by young winemaker Ivan Misuri, who recently won the career-making Giulio Gambelli award. Named for Italy’s "great master of Sangiovese," it’s one of the most prestigious honors a vintner can win in the cradle of Brunello.

Tasting Notes:
Intense bright red tending to garnet with aging.  A buttery scent inebriates the nose. The nose is intense, clean, and characterized by spicy notes reminiscent of berries jam and pleasant shades of vanilla. Majestic on the palate, with a round and velvety body. The tannic plot is dense and enveloping, excellent persistence.

Food Pairing:
Ideal with structured meat dishes, game and aged cheeses.

Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - James Suckling:
"I like the cherry and peach character to this with a hint of raw meat. Medium to full body, creamy tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink or hold." (9/20/2020)

93 Points - Vinous Media:
"The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Molino del Piano bristles with earthy minerals, savory herbs, and animal tones, with sour cherry and hints of dried strawberries in the background. On the palate, soft textures give way to a zesty expression, as brisk acids energize a mix of spiced cherry, and inner florals, with earthy mineral tones forming toward the finale. The finish is long and spicy, resonating on floral-laced red fruits and a buzz of lingering acids. The 2015 Molino del Piano is a bit beastly, like an unruly teenager, but I must admit that I like it quite a bit." - Eric Guido (4/2020)
