Winemaker's Notes

Colour: Clear and intense ruby red.

Nose: Evident fruit blends with vanilla and sweet leaf tobacco.

Palate and wine and food pairing:Full and round entry, generous mid-palate and a persistent and intriguingly tangy finish. Game, grilled red meats and mature cheese.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino opens to simple lines of overripe fruit, desiccated raspberry, game and autumnal leaf. The bouquet is presented in a rather heavy-handed manner without the delicate nuances this beautiful estate at Podere Loreto e San Pio is so famously capable of in more balanced vintages. Thankfully, Mastrojanni’s vineyard-designate Brunello picks up much of the slack. This wine is ready to drink out of the gate. Drink: 2015-2020"
