"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."~M.L.

James Suckling 92
"A soft, silky red with prunes, berries and hints of herbs. Full body, integrated tannins and a fresh, fruity finish. Lovely backbone of ripe tannins. Drink or hold."~J.S.

Stephen Tanzer 91+
"Bright, full ruby. Restrained aromas of sour red cherry, redcurrant, licorice and fresh herbs are complemented by a distinctly mineral aspect. Juicy and fresh in the mouth, with very bright flavors of raspberry, redcurrant jelly and licorice pastille. Intense but not particularly sweet, finishing zippy and long, with youthfully chewy tannins giving it a firm quality. Very serious Brunello: don't touch it for another five years."~S.T.
