'Pertimali' is one of those Brunello wines that has reached a mythic status for how age-worthy it is while remaining affordable. The 2015 is an instant classic! While it will see its prime in a couple of years, with about an hour or two in a decanter this wine is singing. Aromas of wild berries, herbs, and a slight meaty note the complexity is evident immediately. Dusty, leathery tannins and oak tones glaze over the palate along with mushroom and dark fruit. Pappardelle and Crimini and Wild Boar Ragu? Welcome your perfect pairing.
There’s something ethereal in the nose with flowers, cherries, strawberries and shitake mushrooms. Full body. This grows on the palate with super tannin and fruit structure. So much berry flavor and round, caressing tannins that fill your mouth. Tight at the end. This needs four to five years to show its true greatness. Try after 2023.
