This Brunello is a true child of the hot summer of 2009 and shows pleasing warmth and opulence in the mouth. We gave considerably less wood aging than we normally do: only 34 months compared to our typical 40 plus months (bear in mind the DOCG specified minimum is just 24 months). Too much time in wood for a ripe vintage like this would risk tiring the wine and lead to premature aging which we were keen to avoid. On the nose: layered fresh fruit, wet earth, tobacco and cardomom. Harmonious and rotond, with supple yet firm tannins and a full sweetness on the grand finale. Not a nervy expression of Sangiovese but an extremely poised, pleasant and balanced wine. Perfect drinking while we all wait for the 2007s and the 2010s to come into their own.
