Fossacolle Brunello di Montalcino 2009

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Sergio Marchetti's 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is a big wine that carries its weight and concentration gracefully thanks to the extra aromatic embellishments that are woven deep within its fabric. Smoke, chiseled mineral, toasted almond and espresso frame and give definition to a substantial core of dark fruit. The mouthfeel is velvety and textured, but it's also slightly thinner and shorter compared to vintages of the recent past. One year in barrique and one year in botte grande is the aging regime used. It will surely flesh out in the bottle. Drink: 2016-2024. The nose on this brooding wine offers red berry, cooking spices and Mediterranean herbs with hints of saline and truffle. The forward palate delivers stewed prunes, black cherry and black pepper accented with toasted notes and espresso alongside bracing, astringent tannins that dry out the mouth. - K.O.
