Lot #800. Cerbaiona Rosso di Montalcino 2009

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 90 AG.
"The 2009 Rosso di Montalcino emerges from the glass with radiant red fruit, flowers and spices, all of which come to life in a supple, fleshy style that is immensely appealing. Floral notes reappear on the finish, adding an expressive upper register that makes the wine even more complete and beautiful. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019. It’s great to see Diego and Nora Molinari doing better after what was a very difficult period for them last year. This little stretch of land, just outside Montalcino, which Diego Molinari purchased from the Guerrini family in 1977, is one of the most blessed terroirs in the entire appellation. The Cerbaiona Brunelli are big, powerful wines that possess striking balance. Think of Cerbaiona as the Richebourg of Montalcino. Cerbaiona remains one of the benchmarks for great, traditionally made Brunello." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com, Apr 2012
Provenance: The Bijou Cellar
Notes: Nicked, lightly scuffed label.
Lot Location: Orange County
