Intense and bright ruby red with garnet highlights, this wine reveals typical aromas of violets and small red berries. There is a distinctive aroma of woodland undergrowth, aromatic wood and a light note of vanilla and preserved fruit, followed by subtle nuances of coffee. The nose is intense, persistent, broad and ethereal.

Wine AdvocateAt this young stage, the 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is heavily imprinted by oak that needs more months of bottle aging before it finds a deeper level of integration. Aromas of exotic spice, Spanish cedar and sandalwood will move to the background as characteristic tones of dark fruit and balsam herb move forward. That latter set of aromas is already brewing steadily off sides, just waiting to move into the spotlight. This is a tight and masculine expression with a lively garnet-ruby color and delicate touches of plump cherry sweetness woven into the finish. The wine is at its infancy: Give it five year or more to complete its initial evolution. Drink: 2017-2025.

Wine SpectatorRipe cherry, currant and licorice flavors show accents of leather and tobacco. Elegant, yet firm and dense, coming together on the lingering, savory aftertaste. Best from 2015 through 2027. 4,200 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastAromas include ripe red and black fruit, spice, mint, espresso and oak. The palate is extremely soft and forward, showing mature black plum, toast, coffee and vanilla extract alongside evolved tannins. Reflecting the hot vintage, it lacks energy for the long term so enjoy over the next few years.
