97 Points James Suckling - This is one of the most powerful and structured Brunellos I have tasted from the 2015 vintage, showing rich, chewy tannins that are polished and poised. It’s full-bodied and chewy, yet focused and pretty. There’s purity of fruit that is very, very impressive. From organically grown grapes. This needs at least three or four years to soften and come together. Best wine ever from here. Better after 2023.

95 Points Wine Spectator - A blast of fresh black cherry and black currant fruit is shaded by mineral, vetiver, tobacco and earth flavors in this intense red. Firm, dense and stays long on the tightly-packed finish. Best from 2025 through 2050. 800 cases made, 125 cases imported.

94 Points Jeb Dunnuck - Vigna Nastagio is a single vineyard on the upper part of the Orcia River basin. The 2015 spent one year in French tonneaux followed by an additional year in large barrel. The 2015 Vigna Nastagio Brunello is more introspective aromatically at this point than the 2016, with black plum, tobacco, aniseed, and fresh new leather. The full-bodied palate is warm with espresso, dried black cherry, and cocoa, which its velvety tannins wrap around. It opened up quite a bit the second day and will benefit from both time in cellar and air upon opening. 2026-2036.

94 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate - This late-release Brunello is not identified as a Riserva. The Col d'Orcia 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna Nastagio (made with organic fruit) opens to dark berry, cherry, plum, potting soil and balsam herb. The wine shows a full-bodied style, although these results are never too dense or compact. In fact, it offers a loosely knit texture with a warm and penetrating fruit profile that is very characteristic of this vintage. The tannins are tight, so give the wine a little extra time.
