93pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino Annata is a beautiful wine laced with ethereal balsam tones, licorice, cola, dark fruit and forest floor. The acidity is evident but well-integrated within the thick textural richness of the wine. It closes slowly and quietly with a surprising flurry of delicate floral notes that pop up at the end. This well-built wine will hold for many years. Drink: 2017-2030.-Monica Larner

 

92pts Wine Enthusiast

Beautiful floral fragrances of violet and rose accompany whiffs of leather and wet soil. The smooth palate delivers succulent wild cherry accented with notes of white pepper, black tea and a hint of vanilla alongside silky tannins. This will develop more complexity over the next decade but it won't have the longevity of other vintages. Drink 2015–2024. KERIN O’KEEFE

 

Winemaker Notes

A testament of elegance and soul, the Brunello 2009 is a true gentleman’s wine with a bouquet of undergrowth and red fruits underlined by warm balsamic sensations and elegant flinty hints. On the palate it impresses with a vertical tannic structure and a vibrant freshness, while the soothing finish reveals hints of tobacco and vintage leather.

 

The 2009 Brunello was produced with our proprietary clone of Sangiovese Grosso called BBS11, which was identified and selected by Biondi-Santi at Tenuta Greppo. For this Brunello we used grapes from vineyards which were older than 10 years of age, including the oldest ones that are usually designated for the production of Riserva.
