The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is a supple and immediately inviting Brunello that is packed tight with ripe fruit and jammy background notes of sun-drenched raspberry and strawberry. I also made note of the alcohol in my tasting note that I later saw registered at 14.5%. The wine picks up momentum in the mouth where it boasts impressive and compelling textural richness. 2007 and 2009 both seem riper and more immediate. It will be interesting to see how it fleshes out over time. Drink: 2015-2019. 90/100
