Capanne Ricci Brunello di Montalcino 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

On the southern side of the appellation in a relatively warmer zone at 900 feet of elevation , 10 to 12 days of maceration followed by three years in large slavonian oak Old wood and sour berries layered over tarry earth, forest floor, coffee and a little minty greets the nose.A bit austere smelling and spicy on the nose which turns rather tobacco scented with air. Just a hint of fruit sweetness on entry is joined by some sweet oak and high acids on the palate. There's attractive fruit here, cherry and strawberry toned and a bit austere. Finishes modestly with the acid driving the fruit. Simple and open. 88pts

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

Quite Earthy on the nose, with roasted black cherry flesh and a grilled meats. The Earthy quality continues on the palate along with spiced black cherry, the acidity is a bit understated, being upstaged by the solid fruit and pronounced,but fine tannins. 89 Pts.
