Fortius Brunello di Montalcino Il Grappolo 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

West of San Angelo, slight west of Capanne Ricci Sweet, rich and powerful on the nose with deep leathery, slightly jammy wild cherry fruit, hints of flowers, wood spice and a bit of pork sausage. Very nicely done. Moderately rich and ripe on entry with lovely density and ripeness to the tannins. The core of fruit is a bit chunky and darker than most of the wines in the lineup. Finishes a bit short but this has the potential to age well with very nice acid drive and fine tannins, supportive but supple. 92pts

The first impression on the nose is of beautiful spiced, red cherry fruit, followed by tobacco, some forest floor notes, orange rind, molasses, and dried flowers. The palate has lean red cherry, with more spice, mineral, dried herbs, and a moderately long finish. Well balanced, with good structure. 37,000 bottles produced. 90 Pts

<p>Il Grappolo is located to the South of Montalcino in the middle of Tuscany. The vineyard benefits from unique soil and a Mediterranean climate favorable to the growth of vines. The vines are trimmed and the grapes are carefully selected before being harvested; as a result, only the best grapes are preserved to make the Brunello di Montalcino.</p>
