Ruby red closer to pomegranate, after some years acquires a tint of amber.
Complex intensive and elegant bouquet with scent of undergrowth and predominance of violet and musk.
The taste is strong, hot, dry but not much, pleasantly tanninic, lively, harmonious and lingering.
A perfect complement to red game meat, roasted or barbecued, and to the well-seasoned first course in accordance with italian tradition. It's a perfect complement to cheeses with a strong taste (pecorino, parmigiano reggiano, cheeses of alpine meadows etc). - Winery

You can get behind all that extra spice and dark fruit in the 2009 Brunello di Montalcino but it’s harder to warm up to the thinness this wine shows on the palate. The bouquet opens with a boom, but the mouthfeel is relatively short and simple. This is a common thread in many of the 2009 Brunellos available now. The wine should flesh out with time in terms of its fruit latitude and texture, but the persistency will be lean nonetheless. Don’t wait too long to drink this bottle. Drink: 2015-2019. - Robert Parker 87 Points
