The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino shows the signature sophistication this iconic estate is celebrated for. Sadly, Diego and Nora Molinari have announced their intention to sell Cerbaiona and we may soon be looking at new ownership. A dark appearance segues to brooding aromas of licorice, tar, cherry and spice that wrap around the long, polished finish. Feb 2015, www.erobertparker.com, Drink: 2016-2024.
Cerbaiona is one of the leading wine estates of Brunello di Montalcino in Tuscany with a quality of output that is truly monumental. Antonio Galloni puts it simply and effectively, “Diego Molinari’s Brunellos are among the finest wines of Montalcino, and Italy, for that matter.”, Like the great wines of Burgundy, the greatness comes from the perfect location of Cerbaiona’s vines. Galloni makes a direct comparison with one of the best, stating it “is one of the most blessed terroirs in the entire appellation… Think of Cerbaiona as the Richebourg of Montalcino.” Huge praise that means the tiny production of Cerbaiona, only around 600 cases of 12 bottles per year (similar to Le Pin in Pomerol for example) is inevitably scarce on the market and the wine highly fought over.
