About

93

"Caparzo's 2009 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is impressive. Dark, powerful and brooding in the glass, the 2009 hits that palate with black fruit, smoke, tobacco, licorice, menthol, sage, iron and tobacco, all supported by broad yet impeccably balanced tannins. The 2009 can be enjoyed today or cellared for up to a decade."

93 Monica Larner - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Boasting that extra year of cellar aging, the 2009 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a little more steady on its feet compared to the estate's new releases. Dried cherry, blackcurrant, spice and leather broaden the wine's aromatic spectrum. As do the delicate tones of ginger and licorice that linger delicately at the back. This is an expressive and articulate wine that needs more time to form its message. The tannins show a touch of astringency that should soften within the next five years."
