"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...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. "

Product Description:

"The Brunello di Montalcino is produced only with grapes coming from the oldest vineyards.

Its color is intense ruby and the aromas are of mature fruits, sustained in the palate by great complexity. The tannins are noteworthy, silky and oily, persistent.

A wine of optimal equilibrium, elegance and complexity, it will increase its bouquet after a moderate time in bottle." - Winery
