Wine Advocate Review
Rated 92
Sergio Marchetti's 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is a big wine that carries its weight and concentration gracefully thanks to the extra aromatic embellishments that are woven deep within its fabric. Smoke, chiseled mineral, toasted almond and espresso frame and give definition to a substantial core of dark fruit. The mouthfeel is velvety and textured, but it's also slightly thinner and shorter compared to vintages of the recent past. One year in barrique and one year in botte grande is the aging regime used. It will surely flesh out in the bottle. Drink: 2016-2024.

Wine Tasting Notes
Bright, dark red. Spicy red berries, cherry and a flinty nuance on the nose. Then silky, supple and sweet with chewy black and red cherry flavors. Not especially fleshy but offers an attractive restrained sweetness and finishes with rather soft tannins and good length. Perfect for sirloin steak, grilled, roasted or stewed red meats.
