Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

The 2009 La Velona Rosso Di Montalcino is a medium bodied, integrated wine, with intense notes of pine, oak, liquorice and vanilla on the nose and raspberry, cherry and vanilla on the palate. It has tannins that are refined to tannic (decant for 30+ minutes) and a long and slightly sweet (though extra dry) finish. Drink now or cellar for another 5+ years. Drink-how: this wine does well with food as well as a standalone sipper. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 90-91 pts - a recommended buy - don't miss out on this one. Tasted Aug/12.
