Gianni Brunelli Brunello di Montalcino 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Gianni Brunelli Brunello di Montalcino 2009 is 100% Sangiovese that is harvested by hand and aged in oak casks for 30 months. A deep plum-red in color, this Tuscan red offers intense, lingering aromas of fruit, florals and herbs on the nose. On the palate, full body with excellent structure and a lovely finish. "The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is a classic rendition that is layered high with dark fruit, plum, grilled herb, licorice, cola and pressed flowers. The effects of those aromas are long-lasting and persuasive especially as they wrap sensually around the palate. With 30 months in large oak casks, the wine also shows impressive balance for the vintage with a touch of heat that is offset by the brightness of the fruit and a cleansing touch of acidity." -Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (91 Points)

Gianni Brunelli:
Tuscan tradition tells euphoria of wine and oil silence. If the wine is indeed fun and noise, the oil is composure and silence. Slips slowly - but also the oil to be true needs special care. I want to do this by selecting the olive trees, grinding stone, as it once was, the hand-picked olives. It will emerge a green color product like wheat just popped. The flavor will be stronger than those ... Read more
Tuscan tradition tells euphoria of wine and oil silence. If the wine is indeed fun and noise, the oil is composure and silence. Slips slowly - but also the oil to be true needs special care. I want to do this by selecting the olive trees, grinding stone, as it once was, the hand-picked olives. It will emerge a green color product like wheat just popped. The flavor will be stronger than those who remain in the mouth without kneading. A portion of the oil produced will be consumed by customers of the tavern The Lodges, what is left will be sold. The package will be very special. Read less

Red cherry skins, and dried flowers lead the way on the nose with some clay Earth, mineral, and meatiness. The palate is nicely balanced, with finesse, showing more firm red cherry and floral notes, followed by a long, dusty finish. This is the full package, complete, satisfying, and likely to last in the cellar for a while. 91 Pts
