Brick red in the glass. So young for a brunello, the nose was so closed, it was virtually nonexistent. Couldn't properly taste it either, all alcohol and tannin. I doubt I'll get to revisit it again in a decade, but that's when it should start showing things.

At number 15 on the Wine Spectator's Top 100 for 2009, this 95 point Brunello is very hot commodity. We managed to grab just a few cases so don't wait. Here's what the Spectator said about it; "Shows a complex nose of blackberry, tanned leather, sandalwood and cedar. Fascinating. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins and a long, long finish. Concentrated yet balanced. Beautiful and complete. Best after 2011." not sponsored by or affiliated with The Wine Spectator, The Wine Advocate or the International Wine Cellar.


Winemaker's Notes:

The colour is deep and intense ruby red. The bouquet is rich, opening with scents of mint and ripe fruit which lead into spicier notes of coffee at the finish. The entry on the palate reveals perfectly integrated tannins complemented by a good but not excessive alcohol level and a well balanced acidity. The finish is long and persistent. With a bit of daring, this could be savoured as a vino da meditazione, a sipping wine all on its own. Or certainly in accompaniment to end-of dinner sweets, such as panforte. And, of course, with beef stews, braised meats with potatoes, cheeses that are aged but not too pungent, and large game, such as boar.
