Fattoi Brunello di Montalcino 2009




Colour: The wine is visibly limpid, brilliant, an intense ruby red color, with reflections of garnet. Bouquet: intense, persistent, full and ethereal, revealing the aromas of spices, forest floor, small red fruit and rich perfumed roses. The taste: The wine is elegant, harmonious, with long aromatic persistence, balanced tannins and well rounded, with a dry and persistent finish. Food accompaniment: Red meats, game, mushroom and truffle dishes, aged cheeses such as Parmigiano Reggiano and Tuscan Pecorino. An excellent wine for meditation.

Wine EnthusiastOpening aromas include black berries, toast and underbrush with whiffs of leather and eucalyptus. The palate delivers fleshy black cherry accented with vanilla, black pepper and coffee alongside dusty tannins. It closes on a sweet note of almost overripe fruit and is fast approaching its ideal drinking window.

Wine SpectatorShows fine depth, with cherry, plum, eucalyptus and earth flavors. This is slightly chunky, showing chewy tannins on the finish, but retaining enough sweetness in the end. Best from 2015 through 2025.
