Pian Dell'Orino Brunello di Montalcino 2009

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino opens to gorgeous floral tones that frame a darker core of dark fruit. The wine is extremely elegant, especially in the delicate way it puts forth its ethereal aromas of cola, licorice and grilled herb layer after layer. The palate delivers structure and good freshness. Drink: 2018–2028.

The estate is adjacent to the Biondi Santi property. This area has a long history of being particularly suited for growing grapes for high quality wines. Our love for Tuscany and passion for viticulture binds us particularly to this land, our vines and the resulting wines. Our wines come from four different vineyards that have a total area of 6 hectares. Right from the beginning we studied the soil and the structure of each vineyard in order to fully understand its characteristics. Fossils, petrified shells and chalk sediment all testify to the earth’s evolutions and recount marine flooding and periods of drought in the area. The research and the significance dedicated to our land means that we now cultivate it in such a way as to make wines with a very distinct personality that reflect the innate character of each vineyard in a clear and recognisable way.

Good bright medium red. Captivating aromas of red cherry, violet, licorice and tobacco are complicated by a note of gunflint. Lush and sweet but with outstanding definition and lift to the flavors of raspberry, red cherry jelly, minerals and mocha. The juicy, long finish features smooth, sweet tannins that expand with air and repeating notes of red cherry and flint. A fleshier than usual style of Brunello for owners Jan Erbach and Caroline Pobizer, but this creamy, ripe wine is once again one of the handful of top wines of the Denominazione. In fact, Erbach told me he much prefers this wine to the wonderful ’08 he made last year.
