Lisini Brunello di Montalcino 2009
|Appellation||Brunello di Montalcino|
Wine SpectatorThis red bursts with cherry, strawberry and floral aromas and flavors, married to a firm structure. Elegant, with vibrant acidity driving the flavors to a lingering aftertaste of fruit and mineral. Best from 2016 through 2026.
Wine EnthusiastThis ripe wine opens with aromas of stewed black fruit, underbrush, prune, and a just whiff of farmyard. The palate reveals nearly overripe black cherry, cinnamon and clove alongside bracing, astringent tannins.
Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Brunello di Montalcino does not reach the stellar heights of past vintages, notably 2006 and 2007. The wine spends a long 42 months in botte grande and although that great patience does much to increase the wine's nuances, there also appear to be some oxidized tones of dried apple skin and caramelized sugar. The fruit tones are mature and evolved and the wine imparts a delicate, easy footprint on the palate. A blast of sweet cherry arrives unexpectedly on the close. Drink: 2015-2020.
