Wine Advocate-Parker :
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.
