Kerin O'Keefe on Brunello di Montalcino 2015

She says: "With few exceptions, vintages are almost never even across the board in Montalcino. Variations between altitudes, soils and microclimates, as well as producer experience and styles, make such sweeping acclaim almost impossible to apply to Brunello. But in all my years of tasting Brunello, never have I seen a vintage with such an erratic performance like 2015."

Based on what I tasted so far I have to agree with Kerin's take on the vintage, there are a lot of cooked wines out there.
