JS 93 Pts, WA 92 Pts, WE 92 Pts - According to James Suckling - Fabulous aromas of sliced tangerines and blueberries follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a juicy, ripe-fruit finish. Drink or hold.
According to the Wine Advocate - The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is loaded tight with fresh berry aromas and crushed flower followed by measured leather and spice. The wine ages for 30 months in large oak cask. There is a touch of heat (the back label lists 14.5% alcohol) that is only just discernable, happily, that power is nicely wrapped within the fleshy, opulent mouthfeel. Of special note are those distinct floral aromas that make a strong second showing on the finish. Some 90,000 bottles were produced. Drink: 2017-2025. rated 90+
