Tasting Notes

WA95

The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Madonna del Piano is an expressive and articulate wine that speaks highly of Sangiovese and the Montalcino territory. The wine offers a pristine narrative of both grape and place with crystalline aromas of cherry, blackberry, spice, leather, smoke and Mediterranean herb. The bouquet peels back one delicious layer at a time. The mouthfeel is similarly successful with deep concentration and complexity. It imparts soft layers of dried fruit and velvety tannins. Endnotes of espresso bean and toasted almond add length and momentum. There's even spot of chewy sweetness that is typical of the warm 2009 vintage.

JS94

This is the wine of the vintage with dark berry, chocolate, spice and mushroom character. Full body, silky and beautiful tannins and a long, long finish. A beautiful wine.

The Winery

Valdicava

Located in the north of Montalcino, Tuscany, Valdicava wine estate produces some of the highest quality wines in the world by showing different expressions of the opulent Sangiovese grape. The warming sensation from the nearby Tirrean Sea, the protective barrier of the “Monte Amiata”, the cooling breezes of surrounding wooded forests along with moderate rain fall facilitate the particularly unique growth of the Valdicava grapes.

The Brunello-focused estate has given their absolute attention to the vines to produce a great balance of body and aroma, making every bottle a treasured collectible. The hard work and attention to the details in the terroir is evident for the consumers of any Valdicava, now and for years to come.
