Pinino Brunello di Montalcino 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

North of the village of Montalcino at 900 ft of elevation Tight on the nose and quite floral with a bit of milk chocolate and a hint of nutty oak. A bit sweet smelling and matte on the nose. Round and a bit plump in the mouth with nice acids supporting lingonberry and wild tart cherry flavors. There's some complexity here but this is rather straightforward with a hint of oak on the palate and woody tannins on the finish. Smells of flowers and herbs, just doesn't follow through on the palate. 90pts

Pinino wine estate was founded in 1874 by Tito Costanti, Notary public of Montalcino. In 2003, the property was purchased by Andrea and Hannes Gamon of Austria and Max and Silvia Hernandez of Spain with the vision to produce 1st class wines, derived from a common passion.     The Gamon and Hernandez families first began to work together building the retail business for fashion brands in Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands. A few years ago, the company was sold to new owners.   In addition to the friendship, the Gamon and Hernandez families share their passion for cultivated cuisine and fine wines. So, it was only natural to combine this mutual interest into a successful business partnership by acquiring a vineyard. As their preferred wines are those from the Tuscany region, it soon became clear to them that it had to be a vineyard in Montalcino. Not only are the Montalcino wines of superb quality, but the scenic landscape and the cultural heritage make Tuscany the perfect place to live and work.   The Pinino philospophy is very simple. Brunello and Rosso are produced according to the old traditions of Montalcino and finished in large oak wood barrels from Slavonian oak. A clear focus on achieving the highest possible quality for both the vineyard and the wine-cellar will allow Pinino to reach the objective of becoming one of the leading Italian winemakers.

Iron, dried herbs, tobacco, red cherry skins, and some vanilla bean on the nose. The palate consists of tart red cherry fruit that is a bit lean, accented by sparse Asian spice. The brief finish is firm and rustic. 87 Pts
