The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva opens to dark, brooding tones of ripe fruit and savory spice. This is a deeply layered wine that packs a powerful punch. Pressed rose, licorice, cola, menthol tones and toasted nut are subtle elements that make up the bouquet. The mouthfeel is silky, smooth and not as dense as you may expect. Its streamlined appeal makes this Riserva appropriate for braised medallions of soft red meat in creamy mushroom sauce. Crisp acidity keeps the palate amply refreshed. eRobertParker.com.February, 2015
Laura runs the estate named after her late husband, Gianni Brunelli, and this is an estate with a real family feel to it: there is some love here. The estate, where a new winery and cellar are being discreetly constructed, is on the south-facing side of Montalcino, though Laura owns vineyards on both sides of the village and this contributes to the remarkable consistency here from year to year.
Our companion here told us that the 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva from this estate was one of his favourite wines of all time, and was rather put to the test when Laura opened a bottle for us. To his relief, it performed. This is an impeccable wine, one that begs to be drunk rather than merely tasted.
