Tenute Silvio Nardi, Brunello di Montalcino (Tuscany, Italy) Vigneto Manachiara 2015

($110, Kobrand Wine & Spirits):  Silvio Nardi refers to the wine from their Manachiara vineyard as a wine of the East, because the vineyard is located in the eastern part of Montalcino and the vines face southeast. The 2015 shows the ripeness of the vintage without being over the top. It’s a broad-shouldered expression of Brunello with firm tannins and bright acidity.  It’s a 2015 that will develop beautifully over the next decade.
