2009 Sesta di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino (Previously $50)

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "At first the nose is a bit closed, but the wine then opens to reveal lovely, subdued floral notes of blue flower along with red fruit and spice. The juicy palate delivers ripe red and black berries accented with clove, white pepper and sage supported by solid tannins. Still tightly tannic so give this time to unwind. Drink 2016-2021." (3/2014) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Enrica Bandirola’s 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is an interesting and intriguing expression that boasts a very exotic, almost Byzantine (architecturally speaking) personality.

2009 La Velona Brunello di Montalcino Top Pick!
2009 La Velona Brunello di Montalcino

92 points Wine Spectator: "Cherry, plum, licorice and spice flavors play off the lush texture in this opulent red. The tannins offer support, but are well-integrated, leading to a long, balanced finish. (Web-2015) (BS)" 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From Podere Pietranera, the 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is a soft and perfumed expression that excels in consistency as it glides so smoothly over the senses. It shows dried cherry and cassis with good balance, finesse and class. The palate shows more firmness and grit with a pinch of sharp Sangiovese acidity on the close.

2009 Livio Sassetti "Pertimali" Brunello di Montalcino (Previously $45)

92 points Wine & Spirits: "Livio Sassetti’s son Lorenzo runs this family estate, farming 40 acres on the slopes of the Montosoli hill. His 2009 spent 36 months in large botti, where it mellowed into an elegant, earthy wine, its vibrant flavors of black cherries and red berries inflected with floral aromas and light spices. Decant this to let the flavors coalesce, then serve with cherry-glazed duck." (4/2015) 91 points James Suckling: "Very pretty, with fine tannins and fresh fruit. Medium body with sliced-peach and berry flavors. Fresh, bright finish. Drink or hold." (10/2014) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Rich, with black cherry and blackb ...Read More »

2009 La Fortuna Brunello di Montalcino (Previously $40)

(AG)" (5/2014) Wine Enthusiast: "Fragrances of mature black fruit, violet, espresso and baking spices take the lead.

2009 Corte Rugolin "Crosara de le Strìe" Amarone Classico

You should know that the folks behind this newish label are none other than the children of the famous Amarone producer Bruno Coati. This one is impeccably balanced and rich, with layers of coffee, toffee, nuts, berries and earth. A raising star of the region, and already a frequent Gambero Rosso favorite, try this autumnal red with poultry and long cooked meats, or a rich traditional lasagne.

2009 Sella Lessona

92 points Vinous: "High-toned flowers, mint, spices, sweet red berries and anise all waft from the glass in the 2009 Lessona. A wine of superb elegance, the 2009 captures all the best qualities of the appellation in its silky, medium-bodied personality and highly expressive aromatics. Drink 2014 - 2021. Sella is one of the top estates in Northern Piedmont. I have always adored these wines since I first visited the estate a decade ago. I was reminded of how beautiful the wines are when I enjoyed a stellar bottle of the flagship 2006 Omaggio a Quintino Sella recently. Sella' ...Read More »

2009 Flavio Roddolo Nebbiolo d'Alba

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Showing power and determination, the 2009 Nebbiolo d'Alba sees a two-week maceration period and aging in traditional oak casks. The wine is full and generous with tones of dark fruit, spice, balsam herb, licorice and dried mint. The best Nebbiolo fruit goes toward Roddolo's Barolo, but the 2009 vintage saw a good crop for both the production of the higher- and lower-tier wines. (ML)" (6/2015)

2009 Sergio Barale Bussia" Barolo Riserva

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Barolo Bussia Sergio Barale delivers even richer fruit with obvious aromas of prune, plum and dark berry. Polished tannins, firm and tight, are backed by thick fruit padding and fresh acidity that will help navigate the trappings of cellar aging. One of the oldest estates in the Langhe, Fratelli Barale was founded in 1870, shortly after the Barolo denomination was created with the help of Marchesi Falletti and founding father of modern Italy, Count of Cavour, Camillo Benso. Sergio Barale and his daughters manage the estate today. The various exp ...Read More »

Sweet red berries, tobacco, menthol and licorice all flesh out in a juicy, soft Nebbiolo with no hard edges and plenty of supple, deeply expressive fruit.

2009 Dal Forno Romano Valpolicella Classico Superiore

92 points Vinous: "Black cherries, plums, graphite, tapenade, melted road tar and game hits the palate as Romano Dal Forno's 2009 Valpolicella Superiore shows off its personality. The 2009 brings together the signature richness of a wine made from 100% dried fruit with distinctly wild, almost Syrah-like overtones. Inky and intense, with considerable tannic backbone, the 2009 is really more of a junior Amarone than a Valpolicella. Readers will want to give this super-expressive wine another few years in the cellar, but there is a lot to like, even today. (AG)" (7/2015) 91 points Wine Spectator: "A dens ...Read More »

2009 Pian dell'Orino Brunello di Montalcino

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. Caroline Pobitzer and Jan Erbach run a tight ship at Pian dell’Orino.

They morph and transform into something new and unexpected with each swirl of the glass. There’s enough flesh here to keep the wine grounded, but there’s also enough tonic freshness to keep it from feeling heavy. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028. 94+ (ML)" (6/2013) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red.

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2009 Fuligni Brunello di Montalcino (94ST, 93JS, 92VN, 91RP, 90WE, 90WS). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red. Mesmerizingly pure and intense aromas of raspberry, sour red cherry, minerals, licorice and violet. Sweet, lush and deep, with outstanding clarity and lift to the pure flavors of red cherry, raspberry and flint. Pristine and very long on the vibrant finish, which features extremely sophisticated tannins and superb length. The wine's minerally, flinty quality runs through from nose to aftertaste. A paradigm of cooler-climate Montalcino sangiovese, this is the year's best Brunello, and it will cost you a fraction as much as more famous Brunellos that other wine writers will surely score higher."

This is a multifaceted and fascinating wine with a firm tannic backbone surrounded by fleshy fruit, bitter chocolate and exotic spice. The 2009 vintage shows a uniquely plump quality of fruit.

The 2009 needs another year or two for the oak to integrate, but it is a pretty, feminine wine that should develop well with minimum cellaring. If opened today, the wine will need an hour or two of air to find its focus. It keeps getting better and better with air. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2019. (AG)" (6/2012)
