Wine Spectator: 94
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 Advocate: 93
With vineyards on the Castelnuovo dell'Abate side of the appellation, this wine reflects the warm vintage and the slightly wild characteristics of fruit from the southern half of the appellation. The San Giorgio 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Ugolforte is a robust and generous wine, with contemporary touches of smoke and spice that add to its aromatic intensity and complexity. There is plenty of ripe, dark and concentrated fruit here, and that's ultimately what powers this hearty Brunello. The tannins show good integration too.
Decanter: 93
Intense and vibrant nose of wild berries and spicy notes. Juicy core with plenty of meaty notes, ripe tannins structure, juicy plump ripe red fruits. Still tight with lots of room for development.
Vinous: 91
Darker colored red than most 2015 Brunellos I tasted this year. Flinty and blue fruit dominated initially, then develops greater presence of red fruit flavors, with violet and black cherry flavors rising on the long coffee-accented and oaky finish. Currently a little astringent, make sure to decant well ahead and to cellar accordingly.
James Suckling: 94
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.
