Rating
 Wine Advocate 92 points (Feb 2014)
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.

Wine maker notes
Made from 100% Sangiovese Grosso grapes harvested from the Altesino, Montosoli and Velona vineyards in the first 3 weeks of October. After 25 days of maceration, the wine is transferred to large Slovenian barrels where it remains for 3 1/2 years prior to bottling. The ruby red color of this wine tends toward garnet with age. The bouquet displays ample aromas of violet and vanilla. Rich and velvety on the palate with balanced fruit, acidity, and tannin.
