Rating
 Wine Advocate 89 points (Feb 2014)
The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino shows the extra attention required in this difficult vintage, especially when it comes to the careful extraction of tannins and color following a hot growing season. The expert winemaking team under Managing Director Edoardo Virano has crafted an immediately approachable Brunello with bright berry, tobacco and backing spice aromas. The mouthfeel is leaner and less commanding than past vintages but the firmness of the tannin does pop through at the back, rendering a measured sense of structure and endurance. Like many of its peers, this wine is engineered for near-term consumption. Drink: 2015-2020.
 Wine Spectator 91 points (May 7 2014)
Offers a core of balsamic and underbrush flavors, with hints of cherry, licorice and leather. Coffee and mineral accents add interest as this dense, firm red unfolds. Shows fine length on the vibrant finish. Best from 2016 through 2025.—B.S.

Wine maker notes
Manual harvest with rigorous selection of the best bunches in the vineyard and subsequently further hand selection on a sorting table in the cellar. Maximum yield allowed by the Production Regulation is 80 q/ha. Avg. Col d’Orcia Brunello yield: 61 q/ha. Fermented on the skins for about 18-20 days at a controlled temperature of less than 86ºF in 150hl wide and shallow stainless steel tanks designed and built in order to extract tannin and color efficiently but delicately.
